Great! Super convenient. Great flexibility. Fantastic location and hiking.

Lake District North. April 2018 by Sebastian from Queensland, Australia

The planning and preparation via email was fantastic and I found that all my needs were met during the actual hike and I had a very enjoyable time

"Originally I was going to self-book my trek, but I’m glad I went through Wandering Aengus as you guys have the local knowledge, expertise and connections that made my trek stress-free and very enjoyable. The routes were interesting and varied, the accommodation of a high standard, and the ease of having my bags transferred was a god send. Hopefully I will come back soon and do another trekking holiday with you guys"

Lake District North. September 2017 by Mark from Australia

We did the NE Lake District walk over four days. Two easy days along lakes and two harder days over the hills.

"Beautiful part of the world and the organisation was excellent. Nice hotels and B&Bs, thanks for making it a memorable trip."


Lake District North. June 2017 by Erin from California

Fabulous first time experience with Lake walking

"I am very grateful to Karen and Pete for organizing such a great experience. There was great attention to detail and everything was pretty much perfect, with excellent communication and organization. The hiking was challenging in parts, but extremely rewarding and beautiful. I would definitely use Wandering Aengus again and do hope I can make it back to the lakes again soon."

"We are very satisfied with everything: the information before arrival, the information on arrival in Keswick and meeting Pete at Greystones, the accommodation and hospitality, and the beautiful Lake District".

On each day there are two or more options - a relatively moderate walk and a more demanding alternative. They both reach the same place at the end of the day so you can mix and match as you go along depending how you feel when you set off each morning.
