The charge for walking with Northern Cross is in the approximate region of £180 (but varies by different group/Legs due to individual route costs), and this includes all food and accommodation. Note Family Leg has a different price structure, see Leg page for details. A small non-refundable deposit of £20 is required to secure a place. The balance of payment is to be made either by late February or as requested by the Leg leadership team. More details can be given by the Leg leadership when you choose your intended Leg.
A limited number of subsidised places are available at reduced rates, supported from central NorthernCross funds and by voluntary contributions from other walkers. Typical beneficiaries would be students and low/unwaged. If you wish to apply for a subsidised place, please indicate when you apply, and this will be confirmed further to you. To discuss a booking to walk, or the possibilty of a reduced rate, please contact the Coordinator via the contact page.
