Where is Snowflake Mountain filmed? Location guide for new Netflix reality show
Want to visit that picturesque scenery?
New Netflix reality show Snowflake Mountain has captured the attention of viewers across the globe.
The eight-part series, which landed on the streaming site last month, sees 10 lazy millennials (ahem, 'snowflakes') from the UK and US thrown into the wilderness and tasked with learning how to survive.
The Snowflake Mountain cast are put through their paces by ex-military members Matt Tate and Joel Graves and faced with several challenges before the ultimate Wilderness Warrior and Snowflake Mountain winner is announced.
The millennials might not have been impressed by the picturesque camp location, as they were made to get stuck into nature and sleep outside on occasions, but some viewers have been left wondering where the show was shot.
So, where is Snowflake Mountain filmed? And can you actually stay there?
Read on for everything you need to know about where the Netflix reality series was filmed.
Where is Snowflake Mountain filmed?
Snowflake Mountain was filmed in the UK, specifically in the Lake District in Cumbria across various locations.
The Lake District is a major tourist attraction, known for being England’s largest national park. It spans over 900 square miles in Cumbria, North West England.
But, of course, fans only saw a small segment of the Lake District on Snowflake Mountain.
Most of the show was filmed on a private, family-run estate called Graythwaite Estate, which is close to the town of Hawkshead.
Snowflake Mountain contestants camped out on the 5,000 acres of land that surround Graythwaite Hall.
This isn’t the first time the Lake District has been used as a filming location.
Is Snowflake Mountain a real-life location?
For viewers wondering whether Snowflake Mountain is a real-life location, sadly the answer is no.
The title refers to the show’s cast of “snowflakes” – a derogatory term aimed primarily at millennials who are perceived as too sensitive.
As detailed above, Snowflake Mountain was filmed in the UK, specifically in the Lake District in Cumbria.
