Cumbria Way Walking Holiday

70 miles. Book your Cumbria Way Walking Holiday

“An arrow through the centre of the spectacular Lake District”

The Cumbria Way passes south to north through the heart of the Lake District visiting Coniston, Langdale, Borrowdale, Keswick & Caldbeck. However it will be the peaceful moments which will live long in the memory. Beacon Tarn is a little gem, as is Little Langdale early in the walk whilst Langstrath is a hidden valley rarely visited and all the better for it! There are always opportunities to climb a few fells on the way.

Our Cumbria Way Walking Holiday allows for maximum flexibility, particularly in the central section. The itinerary below is the most popular but you may wish to plan shorter or longer days. Just let us know or call to discuss what is best.

For more details on the Cumbria Way (and my personal account of the walk) refer to our Cumbria Way page
