    In one of the wildest corners of northwest England lies the soaring mountains and deep blue waters of the distinctly beautiful Lake District National Park. A landscape full of hanging valleys, rushing waterfalls, and impressive crags cloaked in volcanic rock, it’s a stunning and exciting place to explore.

    With your knowledgeable Wilderness Guide, hike to the top of some of the highest peaks in the lakes and enjoy some of the country’s most rugged and spectacular views. Discover the evocative nature of England’s largest national park. Look out for red deer, otters, and the steady hovering silhouette of a kestrel as it scans the ground for voles. Enjoy visiting a pretty market town and taking a boat trip across a shimmering lake with enchanting views of the surrounding fells.

    During your trip, stay in a 300 year old guest house nestled in the heart of Borrowdale Valley. After full, enjoyable days spent exploring winding valleys, lofty mountains and iridescent lakes, return to the warmth of English hospitality and enjoy delicious meals made from fresh local produce.

    Trip Highlights

    • Hike up the stony beauty of England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and enjoy spectacular panoramic views.
    • Enjoy the company and expertise of a Wilderness guide, learning about the history and stories of this beautiful region.
    • Stay in a charming, private guesthouse which has been welcoming visitors for over 100 years.

    Difficulty Grades Explained

    Blue Graded Walking Holidays

    Blue graded walking holidays are suitable for fit and experienced hikers. We walk at a good pace and you can expect to be out for 6-8 hours a day. You will not always be on a path and the terrain underfoot can be rough and boggy, including boulder fields and mountain tops. Some of the daily walks will involve a mountain ascent of over 3000ft / 900m high. Daily distances will be typically up to 16km but may be longer occasionally. Daily hike details are available in the itinerary.
