Take in some of the country's best scenery on a stunning Lake District trek.
Join us on the Lake District Challenge and take on England's finest countryside at your pace. Our wonderful route takes you over some tough hills, Garburn Pass, into Ambleside, through our halfway point by the idyllic Lake Windermere, into some forests, and nature reserves all with some stunning views, all based around our Kendal basecamp, where you will get full support and hospitality, optional camping/hostel, and with half and quarter distance options – there’s a Lake District Challenge for everyone!
