The Lake District Walker

Whatever your ability we have a walk, challenge or activity that's fun, affordable and with something on our diary of events every day of the year it's always an adventure with the guides of The Lake District Walker.


The Lake District Walker is now open again for business, although we are currently running a more limited diary than usual.
Due to current staff levels and logistical issues we are not offering ghyll scrambling, we are hoping to get this back on the diary as soon as possible, hopefully by August.
Since the easing of lockdown we have been receiving unprecedented levels of enquiries and with lower staff levels than usual it is taking a little longer than normal to get back to everybody, please bear with us.

Embark on walking holidays in the Lake District

For some people, an ideal vacation is lying beside a pool of a 5-star all-inclusive hotel in an exotic location. Others prefer spending their holidays a little more actively – hiking and taking hill walks. If you are one of such people, you have come to the right place! We offer guided walking tours in the Lake District for every day of the year. Our diary is full of exciting activities and events to make sure you never fall short of things to explore. Whatever your age and physical ability are – you are in safe hands with The Lake District Walker!
