All our locations are rural and beautiful so you may want to come down a night early to get set up if you're coming far. If you're a student check with your University Wilderness Medical Society to see if they're planning on coming or taking a minibus. If you don't have wheels pop a post in the forum to make contact with someone who may offer you a lift. The trip is self-catered to keep your costs down. We recommend Expedition Foods (discount code "unique10"), Firepot foods (discount code "UNIQUE20"), The Fell Store (discount code "UNIQUEEXPEDITIONS") for your suppers and plenty of snacks.
