Tour of the Lake District

Cumbria

150 km / 93 miles
This tour takes the idea of a typical European mountain trek and adapts it to the Lake District. The circular route starts at Windermere and passes through Ambleside, Coniston, and Eskdale before heading north to Keswick. It then heads south, through Rosthwaite to Grasmere; across to Patterdale and thence back to Windermere.

There are five high-level alternative routes that take the walker over the regionís main peaks; also nine half-day walks can be undertaken from specific points along the route.
