Trip Locations

This page details CUHWC trip locations. It was originally set up by Andrew Williamson.

Our Trips

We usually organise four trips in each of the Michaelmas and Lent terms (three weekend trips and a day trip) and three in the Easter term (two weekends and a day trip). Longer outings take place in each vacation. This page lists information on recent trips to popular CUHWC trip locations, but is (probably) not exhaustive. We tend to visit the Lake District and Snowdonia once per term for a weekend. A third weekend trip location is then also chosen by the President for the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. For our day trips, we always go to Edale in Michaelmas Term for our freshers' day trip; the locations in Lent and Easter Terms vary — see below.

BMC Location Maps

Map of BMC Hut Locations

The BMC has also produced a location map of some of their huts available to members across the UK. Many of these bunkhouses we have visited before, but there are others that perhaps we should consider visiting in the future.
