The North Face Mountain Festival is the festival for the adventurous!

Summer probably has some of the best festival events going on each year. With events such as V Festival, Wireless, Glastonbury and many more. But if you’ve been there and done that, you might be up for a change. You might be considering hanging up your wellies and getting a new challenge and a real adventure.

But this is not your normal ‘festival’. If you love adventure and consider yourself a fitness enthusiast then this might just be your ideal festival. With hiking, trail running and climbs all led by expert mountain guides and athletes, you’ll get to challenge yourself with a new hobby, meet other adventurous and sporty people, and indulge in a fun weekend away.

Even if you are not familiar with hiking, mountain climbing and trail runs, the festival caters for all levels (from novice to advance) and will include introductory yet challenging exercises surrounded by stunning scenic views, that’ll leave a memorable impression. The festival is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to become an avid adventurer, with basecamp workshops and talks about inspiring stories of exploration, epic outdoor cinema, adventure photography and kit prep – all carried out by The North Face professional athletes team.

The fun doesn’t stop there. You will be able to eat and dance under the stars, with evening entertainment of live music and an outdoor cinema screening, plus you can enjoy fresh meals made with local produce. You can also access the spa facilities to give your muscles a well-deserved rest!
