Enjoy 4 days Fell Walking to complete a clockwise tour of England’s largest lake taking in breath taking views from the top of 6 Lakeland Fells, completing 45 miles of varied terrain. Days include a glorious journey along the Windermere lakeshore, amongst the flora, fauna and birdlife, as well as forest walking, easy pasture and rugged fell tops. The route heads from Windermere, into the Winster Valley, over to the southern tip of the Lake. With a day off in the middle, days 2 & 4 we will guide you up the side of Lake Windermere via 2 fells along the way with views to the Langdale fells as you walk. The final day’s walking is from Ambleside returning to Windermere, with views over towards Helvellyn, High Street & Kentmere ridgelines.

We deliver our Windermere Way Holiday over 5 days, giving a day off in the middle to give you time to enjoy other Lake District treasures.
