Get off the beaten path and discover the Lakeland villages and dramatic views of the Lake District. Taste delicious homemade food, drive over high mountain passes, see Wordsworth’s daffodils, and more.
What to Expect
Explore the mountains, stone circles, waterfalls, and lakes of the Lake District on a 7-hour off-the-beaten-track tour, and stop to taste scrumptious homemade food.
Escape the usual tourist crowds in this well-trodden landscape of England, and see and experience unique and special moments, such as a walk amongst Wordsworth’s daffodils, or standing below Aira Force.
Get far off the beaten tracks and travel along minor roads with distant views of Scotland. Take a breathtakingly beautiful drive that clings to the lake shoreline of Buttermere and Crummock Water.
Refreshment stops are equally special, and offer a chance to experience a true taste of Lakeland, whether it is homemade ice cream, traditional Herdwick lamb stew, or the best home baked scones and cakes in the Lake District.
The deservedly popular beauty spots, such as Surprise View and Grasmere, are not neglected. But mix this up with hidden gems to take your breath away, and cap it off with an optional cruise on Lake Windermere to see the stunning lakes and mountains from a different perspective.
