'Wainwright Favourites', Tour of the Lake District
A Grand Tour of the Lake District, visiting the favourite valleys and mountains of Alfred Wainwright, Britain’s best known ‘fellwalker’ and guidebook writer. For each day’s walk there are at least two route choices including a moderate option and a more challenging alternative, which will take in one or more ‘Wainwights’ (summits described in his 7 volume ‘Pictorial Guide’). The options always start and finish in the same place so you can mix and match as you go along. On this tour we guarantee: 7 lakes including the ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ of lakes, and numerous mountain tarns; England’s highest peak; traditional Lakeland villages; Herdwick sheep; the stomping ground of the Romantic Poets; and above all, spectacular scenery unlike anywhere else in the world!.
