Routes Include 7 Wainwright Fells, all of which are over 2,000 ft, and including Scafell Pike, the highest mountan England. There are also four lower level walks, including a stroll over one of the most iconic bridges in England.
- Oak Howe, probably the easiest fell walk in the Lake District, and a fine afternoon stroll for getting a long motorway journey out of your system. Despite being short in distance, it is not short on scenic beauty.
- Side Pike, via 'Fat mans agony'. What Side Pike lacks in height, it more than makes up for with the wondrous majesty of the views that are enjoyed from the top. In addition,the route up has a wonderful, heart stopping traverse that, on closer inspection, is not all it first seems to be. An experience not to be missed.
- High Raise and Sergeant Man. A superb scenically rich mountain walk over a rock filled landscape to the centre of the Lake District.
- Scafell Pike via Angle Tarn. An early start on a fine summer day will reward you with a truly magnificent walking experience as you climb to Angle Tarn and then head deep into the highest mountain range in England, with the daddy of them all, Scafell Pike, as your goal.
- Slater's Bridge. A scenic stroll into neighbouring Little Langdale to reach the wonderfully charming Slaters Bridge, a relic of a very different age
- Grasmere... and back. A wonderful fell walk over the long ridge that divides the Langdale Valley with Easedale, and ultimately the destination of this superb walk, Grasmere. The return is via an equally stunning route overlooking Elterwater.
- Crinkle Crags. Linking Bowfell and Pike O'Bliscoe are Crinkle Crags, a superb rocky wonderland that will live long in the memory.
- Stake Pass. A walk that includes a bus ride! We take a scenic tour beyond Keswick to the Borrowdale Valley, a journey of over 26 miles, and then head back over the mountains to Langdale, a superb scenically delighful walk of just 8 miles.
