The English Lake District
Cumbria is one of the most perfectly proportioned mountain areas you’ll come across. The scenery is world class, and has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. The fells and crags have their own unique charm and their accessibility makes this a superb area to cut your teeth walking and climbing.
With a wealth of accommodation and good transport links it’s a perfect base, whether learning mountaincraft and navigation, climbing and scrambling or just enjoying a more relaxing day surrounded by fabulous scenery.
The compact nature of the Lake District means that there are always inviting options around every corner. Having a guide who can tailor the day to your needs will ensure you have the best possible experience.
The Lakes climate is somewhat less extreme than Scotland’s and that allows for year-round fun! Whatever time of year you’re going to be here we can help you get the very best from your visit. Our guides are all local experts who know the Lake District like the back of their hand. The Lake District is perfect for learning how to navigate with map and compass, walking the fells and dales, or having an introduction to scrambling or rock climbing. You can also rest assured that the quality and variety of Lakeland watering holes and eateries are second to none – we’ve tested most of them for you!
