Ideal for visitors with only one day to see the Lake District National Park, the Best of the Lakes tour takes in the highlights of the area, combining two of our most popular tours, the Ten Lakes Spectacular and the High Adventure.
Combining the best parts of both our classic High Adventure
tour and our best-selling Ten Lakes Spectacular
tour, this is an excellent way for those with limited time in the Lake District.
The day starts in the Southern Lake District as we drive through the dramatic Langdale Valley. After spending the morning on the infamous Hardknott and Wrynose passes, we reach the Western and more remoter parts Lake District, with time to take in 'Britain's Favourite View' at Wastwater, the deepest lake in England.
After lunch we take in the 4000 year old Castlerigg Stone Circle, believed to be older than Stone Henge. Before returning back to Windermere, there is chance to view the historic village of Grasmere, former home of Wordsworth.
