🗻 Hiking in the North Lakes

The Lake District, a region and national park in northwest England, is a popular holiday destination. It’s known for its glacial ribbon lakes, rugged fell mountains and historic literary associations. Market towns such as Kendal, Keswick and Ambleside are bases for exploring the area and home to traditional inns, galleries of local art and outdoor equipment shops.

This time we are going to climb two peaks of the Lake District and enjoy the astonishing view from the snowy summits of Skiddaw & Blencathra.
