Overview
Home to some of England’s most beautiful landscapes, the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Lake District is a world of rugged fells, rolling hills, and mirror-like lakes. With onboard commentary from your guide, journey through the English countryside to explore top attractions including the Castlerigg Stone Circle and Honister Pass on foot.

What to Expect

After a morning pickup in Ambleside, Bowness-on-Windermere, or Windermere, board your air-conditioned minivan and head into the UNESCO-listed Lake District. Enjoy views of rolling hillsides and rugged valleys as your guide details the region’s history and geology.

Continue to Rydal Water, stopping for scenic photo ops, and through the Borrowdale Valley past pretty villages such as Buttermere and Grasmere. Ascend Kirkstone Pass for views over Bassenthwaite Lake and tackle the rocky slopes of Honister Pass. Throughout the day there are plenty of chances to stretch your legs and explore on foot.

After lunch in Keswick (own expense), visit the Castlerigg Stone Circle and learn about the stones’ ceremonial history—dating back to 3,000 BC.Then take to the water on a scenic sightseeing cruise, admiring panoramic views over the peaks and fells.

Finally, return to your departure point, where your Lake District tour ends.

Very enjoyable

We had the chance to see through the Lake District, it’s hills, villages and lakes. The coach, Mr. Jeff was very informative, patient and friendly. I would recommend the Mountain Goat tour agency for anyone visiting the Lake District.
