Keswick and Derwentwater. June 2019 by Greg from London

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

"Great custom 3-day, 2-night trip to Keswick and the Derwentwater. Super helpful route/guide material, great accommodations and transfer, and great flexibility when our plans changed!"


Lakeland Walker. May 2019 by Martin Slater from Blackburn

Fantastic accommodation and great walking with an interesting and knowledgeable guide.

"From start to finish our Wandering Aengus holiday was fantastic. Our accommodation in Keswick was lovely and Pete led a great walk up Great Gable via Base Brown and Green Gable, finished off with a well deserved pint! Pete was a very knowledgeable guide and good company. I should also mention Karen's packed lunch which more than sustained us for the trek! The trip also included a useful information pack including clear directions for a self-guided walk up Catbells (another fab lunch provided!). Overall a great weekend Wainwright bagging and we wouldnâ t hesitate to recommend Wandering Aengus for a walking adventure."


Laleland Walker by Mariette from Dubai

Wonderful three day stress free walking experience in the Lake District.

"This was our first time hiking in the Lake District. Pete and Karen were able to coordinate a perfect three day hiking ittinerary for us meeting our exact requirements and also including some interesting historical sights as I had requested. The accommodation was wonderful and the walking maps and additional local information was very helpful."


Lakeland Walker by Richard and Ann from Stoke Gifford, Bristol

"Walks tailored very well to capabilities. Continued the second walk down to the water and caught the boat back. Being dropped off at the furthest point and walking back to base worked extremely well."
