Lake District

Description

The Lake District in northwestern England is one of the most popular hiking and holiday destinations of England. The contrast between the wild, sometimes rugged mountains, and the friendly valleys is striking. The lakes offer excellent holiday entertainment. Speaking about the Lake District, one should not forget to mention the romantic poet William Wordsworth. You may find copies of his writings in the villages.

Several long distance hikes traverse the region. The Coast to Coast Path chooses some of the best scenery. But there is much more to enjoy. The extended network of well marked trails is awaiting you.
