The Lake District National Park has walks for every ability from ambles around lakes to high ridge walks, with a bit of scrambling - climbing over rocks without a rope.
Why not follow one of our volunteers on a guided walk? You don't need to worry about navigation and can learn from a knowledgeable local. Pick from short, scenic picnic strolls to full days through spectacular landscape. And they're usually free!
Don't get lost, get confident! Learn how to use a map and compass and improve your walking experience:
If you find walking a challenge or your party includes a wheelchair or buggy, our Miles Without Stiles routes offer laidback routes through the countryside. You don't have to head onto the high fells to enjoy some fantastic views.
There are hundreds of walking books and guides available. Why not pop into one of our Information Centres and have a browse?
For top walking tips and route recommendations from our fabulous volunteer walk leaders, check out our walks blog.
