Hey there! Would you like to see picturesque and famous places, escape from the London crowds, and meet a whole variety of new people from outside your course, and even your country? Or do you like an adrenaline rush and the challenge of climbing up that hill or mountain? If yes, UCL Hiking Club is for you! It's never too late to join us - new members welcome all year round.
We organise walks and hikes to suit all levels - from complete beginners to seasoned ramblers. Hikes in and around the South East take place every weekend, while weekend trips further away are planned throughout the year. Past destinations for residential trips include Dartmoor, Skye, Snowdonia, Peak District, Lake District, Brecon Beacons, Romania, and Poland.
We will be running two hikes every weekend. Full details about how our hikes will be working (sign ups, meeting points, etc.) can be found in our FAQ document, listed on our website. However, if you still have any questions please just contact the club! All information about upcoming walks and residential trips goes out through emails to members and our private Facebook group. Those who have bought either our Free/Remote or Full membership, please request to follow our Members Only Facebook Group.
Free/Remote Membership - open to anyone and everyone! You will get our weekly newsletters to stay in the loop with the club, and get access to all our online activities if you can't join us on campus for first term. This includes online socials as well as online hiking activities and news. You will also have access to our four 'Try It!' Hikes.
Full Membership (£10) - this membership is the full Hiking Club package. It gets you weekly newsletters, access to all online activities and socials, as well as any and all in-person hikes and activities. This includes our four 'Try It!' Hikes during Freshers as well.
Don't worry if you aren't on campus this term but will be joining us next term - you can easily upgrade your membership to enjoy all the hiking perks! All memberships also include a 10% discount code off Cotswold merchandise, message us on any platform for the code.
