Welcome to Active Lakes
Walking holidays in the English Lake District
Welcome to Active Lakes where we specialise in guided walking tours taking in some of the Lake District's most famous tops, at a pace to suit you. Whether your idea of a perfect walking holiday is hiking across the high fell tops or wandering at a more sedate pace through the hills and valleys, we can design an itinerary to suit you. Allow us to arrange everything needed for the perfect walking holiday, from transport from your hotel to the start of your walk, packed lunches and loaned or hired kit where required. Walking holidays in the English Lake District are our speciality, come and share our enjoyment of hiking in the valleys, hills and mountains.
If you would like a day away from the exertion of mountain walking that's no problem. Let Active Lakes organise some pony treking for you, or maybe you would like to visit one of the many bustling towns in the area. Why not travel by steam train or by lake steamer? Active Lakes can help with that too.
Active Lakes can also arrange specialist guidance for a range of activities such as climbing, scrambling, canoeing, mountain biking or road cycling. We can show you some great places to stay and to dine and we can take care of the bookings for you too.
This is the view from the top of Coniston Old Man. It looks even better in real life - come and look for yourself. Give us a call and we will take you there.
Another of our favourite things. Here is a video of a mountain bike ride from Cartmel on a lovely sunny day April day. Join us for a ride some time.
