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 walking 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.

Customer reviews from the Lake District Circular Walks

“Loved the variety of scenery on this walk. The baggage transfers worked exactly as they should have. Contours did a good job in general.”
Ms Gordon, USA
“This was wonderful.”
Mr Lawshe, USA
“The countryside was beautiful.”
Ms Ames, USA
“I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday... The walk is varied.”
Mr Bakes, UK
“Our holiday was wonderful. While we found it challenging at times, probably due to our respective ages (58 and 61), it was doable and we were rewarded with some stunning scenery. Trekking in the UK is not like it is in Canada; at home, we have some beautiful trails and a variety of places to go hiking, but we do not have the culture of climbing stiles, slipping through kissing gates and traipsing through farmers' fields and pastures. We only returned home from the UK earlier this week, and we have already started looking online at options for our next walking holiday.”
Ms Seton, Canada
“Excellent accommodation and baggage transfer. Great scenery”
Mr Langford, UK
“Some excellent walking and scenery. Overall a most enjoyable holiday, we hope to do another of your walks soon. Thank you very much for your help before and during the holiday.”
Mr Johnson, UK
“My first visit to the Lake District. Weather good, scenery lovely, thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Good route notes and easy to follow. Standard of accommodation was high.”
Mr Sharp, UK
“You are organized with accommodation and transport of luggage.”
Mrs Cober, Canada
