This activity will end right where it started.We can pick up from accommodation providers in South Lakes including Kendal, Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside and Grasmere.
After pickup at one of the following locations (Ambleside, Bowness, Windermere, Grasmere, Keswick or Oxenholme), you’ll climb aboard a luxurious, private vehicle destined for the Lake District.

While you travel, gaze out of the window at a scenic tapestry of the English countryside and listen to informative commentary from your knowledgeable guide. Head first to Lake Windemere — the largest of the Lake District’s lakes — to absorb sweeping panoramas of mist-shrouded hills and vivid meadows.

Then, lose yourself to the beauty of Ullswater Lake — considered one of England’s most attractive lakes — and feast your senses on the rippling tranquility of Derwentwater, best enjoyed from the Friar’s Crag promontory.

On arrival at Buttermere Valley, you’ll be astounded by Scale Force — the Lake District’s highest waterfall — and the serene string of lakes that pepper the landscape. Relish the flexibility of this private tour by customizing your itinerary according to your interests — opt to remain at certain lakes for longer, and choose to enjoy boat rides at your own expense.

Revitalize with lunch at a quaint market town of your choice (own expense) and then enjoy some relaxed free time to browse farm shops in villages such as Grasmere or Keswick.

After travelling over Honister Mountain Pass, a scenic drive that connects two valleys, you’ll begin the journey back to your original departure point. Bid your private guide farewell and conclude your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

This was the highlight of our trip. The tour guide was excellent and so talented he was able to provide ample opportunity for my husband to take pictures. We would never have been able to see the wonders of the Lake District had it not been for Alan, our guide. This is a tour above and way beyond typical tour offerings. We got to out of the way places of great beauty and historical significance. I highly recommend this experience as a way to really experience the beauty and history of the Lake District. Alan was more than willing to visit places we wanted to see and not repeat our own wanderings. Thanks and kudos to the local tour company and Alan. Paddy and John Kennington, Georgia, USA
