Lake District Walking Tours

Our Lake District guided walking tours are the perfect way to explore the spectacular beauty of the UK's most popular National Park and the largest in England and Wales.  

Whilst we already have dozens of planned routes, these can all be tailored to your group's personal requirements. This can be done beforehand based on fitness levels, goals, aspirations or preferences or even during the walk if needed.

Helvellyn has long been a favourite amongst visitors to the Lake District, it stands at 950m and is the third highest peak in the Lakes. 

Routes to the summit are plentiful; from steady mountain paths to sharp edges requiring some scrambling and a head for heights. Indeed, the weather conditions on the day may also play a part on the chosen route.

Scafell Pike

Scafell Pike is the highest point in England at an impressive 978m with 360-degree panoramic views from the summit (weather permitting). It is an absolute must for your Lake District wishlist. 
 

Whilst most routes are technically more demanding than other Lakeland summits, it can still be achieved by most walkers with moderate fitness levels. 
 

On a long summers day, there are opportunities to add other summits to the day's hike, Lingmell and Bowfell are both favourites of the team here at Embark.

Martindale Fells

This is Mark's best-loved location in the Lake District and is known to him like the back of his hand. If 'Wainwright Bagging' is your thing, this area can provide numerous peaks to tick off on a days hike. 
 

From the relatively tame Hallin Fell to the more challenging routes up to Kidsty Pike, The Knott and High Street, this really is a stunning area of the Lakes. Views are far-reaching onto the Helvellyn range to the West. The peaks of Blencathra and Skiddaw are often visible on a clear day.
