Grizedale Sculpture Trek
Green lanes, internationally renowned sculptures and breathtaking views
Since 1977 leading international artists have created sculpture at Grizedale Forest, 10 square miles of natural woodland in the Lake District near Coniston Water. Every Wednesday we lead a trek through the forest with our native Fell ponies carrying everything we need for a hot picnic lunch by a tranquil tarn.
Prices start from £80 per person (£50 under 18’s) including hot picnic lunch
What we’ll do
Start the day making friends with your pack pony. Then we load the packsaddles with everything we need for a hot picnic lunch. Suitable for families, of all ages, the walk is about 4 miles round trip and takes approx 5 hours including lunch
The therapeutic benefits of horses are known to help bring us inner peace and a sense of well being. As a herd animal, horses in particular are attuned to the feelings of others and are an ideal calming influence.
Grizedale Forest is a haven for a rich variety of wildlife including red and roe deer, squirrels, badgers, foxes, grouse and woodpeckers.
