Chiltern Hills – Hiking & Camping 3 Day Trip

Shameer Shah Project

Squeeze in a fun packed, pleasurable and energising weekend of Chiltern Hills Hiking & Camping under the stars.

The day hikes meander through a river (disused canal), ancient woodlands, forests and hillsides which include a mix of narrow trails, paths and some bridleways. Included are numerous hilltop vistas in the distance whilst being surrounded by diverse nature, birds and hopefully, get to see some wildlife.

This part of the Chiltern Hills countryside is very impressive, just as impressive as the rolling hills that encompass the walking trails. Both beginner and intermediate hikers would enjoy this 3 day super weekend.

This Chiltern Hills Hiking & Camping trip is ideal for beginners, but also enjoyable for all levels of experience.
