Welcome to the UEA Mountaineering Club page!
What´s on offer?
UEA Mountaineering wants to offer you the opportunity to join us in scrambling, hiking, rambling, walking, and climbing some of the most beautiful mountains and trails that the UK's prized National Parks have to offer. With our weekend trips, swap out your books for walking boots as we get away from the hustle and bustle of university life, meet new people and visit idyllic locations including the Lake District, Snowdonia, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, and the Brecon Beacons. With routes catering to all experiences and levels, all are welcome to join us in exploring the highest and prettiest parts of England, Scotland, and Wales. Led by experienced walk leaders, weekend trips offer the perfect opportunity to walk outdoors and learn the skills of map reading, navigation and leadership or simply admire the beautiful countryside and national parks of the UK.
As well as these amazing weekend trips, with our partner society UEA Day Walks Society, we offer single day trips around Norfolk visiting some of Norfolk's stunning National Heritage sites. Come rain or shine, we promise a fantastic day outside. Find out more here.
In addition to all of that, we also offer a special Christmas Trip to finish the first semester in style and end the year with both a weeklong Scotland Trip and an International Trip available to all members along with a wide array of socials. Socials planned for the upcoming 2020/21 year include BBQ, Quiz nights, Laser Tag, Trampolining, Christmas Meal, and the always popular Wine and Cheese night!
We are really looking forward to seeing some fresh new faces, whether you have a plethora of experience, or whether it's your first time walking in the UK. Everyone is welcome. See you on the hillside!
