About the trail

The Lake District – a UNESCO World Heritage site – is England's only true mountain region and contains some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. It is an enchanting mix of rugged mountains, deep valleys, shimmering lakes, powerful waterfalls and attractive stone-built villages.

Our selection of circular trails in the Lake District National Park provide an enticing mixture of scenery, terrain and challenge. Our short breaks offer a unique snapshot of the region's finest scenes, while veteran hikers can test their endurance on the epic Bob Graham Round. Whether you are looking for fabulous views, picturesque settlements, insightful history or literary inspiration, each of these walks offers something different, and are ideal for an active but tranquil retreat into the Great British countryside.

Dog friendly tours available

Dogs are welcome on select routes along this trail. Look for the pawprint icon when choosing your holiday.
