Festive lakes launch

For gifts that will keep on giving, look no further

7 December 2017

Put down the fluffy socks and hand soap! There’s no need to panic buy your presents this Christmas, we’ve got you covered with plenty of gift ideas, all with a little Lake District charm!

What’s even better, all proceeds from these gifts go straight back into the Lake District National Park to protect this beautiful landscape for seasons to come. So join us and get festive in the Lakes this Christmas…

Make lasting memories

For as little as £10 you can donate to the National Park on behalf of someone special and give a truly personal gift this Christmas.

Choose a particular place, project or person to sponsor, perhaps in memory of someone, or in celebration of a special occasion. You could also add an engraved plaque and a message on our memorial web page for an extra special touch.  

We're the place for trees!

Start the season in style and head to the Lake District Visitor Centre, Brockhole-on-Windermere, to buy your Christmas tree. They have a great selection, with plenty of shapes and sizes to choose from, plus it’s free parking until Christmas Eve!

Get to grips with winter walking

Are you looking for the perfect present for a budding mountaineer? Many walkers love to explore the fells of the Lake District, but don’t feel confident enough to head out in blustering weather conditions.

Book your tickets for one of our Winter Skills courses and your friends or family will spend the day with an experienced mountaineer and National Park fell top assessor, learning the basic skills of snow craft needed for winter walking.

Stay on track...

Make sure your loved ones don’t get lost with this gift and treat them to a navigation skills course. With a range of courses available this is the perfect present for all ages.

These gifts can be redeemed between Easter and October so you and your loved ones can make a day of it in the Lake District…hopefully even in the sunshine!

Brave the Cave

Don’t just buy gifts to keep the family entertained on Christmas Day, plan days out that that are ideal for rainy days in the New Year.  

Dive into darkness at Brave the Cave, an indoor caving experience at Brockhole-on-Windermere. Brand new for 2017 the caves are a great day out for the whole family. Special Christmas sessions from 16 December - book online.

Explore the Lakes with a guided walk

Give the gift of a guided walk to join one of our local expert volunteers on a new route around the Lakes. There’s plenty of choice from summits of world famous peaks like Scafell Pike, to adventures through caves and caverns and beautiful views of waterfalls and lakes.
