Choose a Lake District walking or cycling route
Starting from Ambleside, Cockermouth, Coniston, Keswick or Sedbergh the routes will vary in length and type and with 10 routes for each town there are plenty of challenges to choose from.
A spokesman said: “It would be easy to fill a weekend, or even a week, and take in some of the most stunning views in the country.”
Why not base yourself in Ambleside? At the head of Windermere and the foot of Kirkstone Pass, it is in the very heart of the Lake District and surrounded by beautiful scenery waiting to be explored.
If you’re feeling energetic you could take on the Fairfield Horseshoe. Covering 11 miles it is probably one the most famous classic rounds and takes in all of the peaks surrounding Rydal.
The views are good all round but are best from the summit plateau of Fairfield. Most of the Lake District peaks are visible from the top and it's about the best place to view Helvellyn.
If you want to take it a bit easier you can still experience wonderful views; try the High Sweden Bridge walk. Over three miles you’ll get to explore the wild and lonely valley of Scandale, being so close to the hustle and bustle its peaceful surrounds come as a real surprise.
The route takes you through woodland to the picturesque packhorse bridge and then climbs slightly giving great views of Grasmere and Rydal.
