Full description
After being picked up from Manchester in a luxury Minivan, head North to the Lake District for less than 2 hours. When you arrive in the Lake District, head to Tarn Hows, and Hawkshead, for a lake cruise.

On day 2, join the 'High Adventure Tour', which focuses on the western Lake District. This full-day tour follows the path of Roman Emperor Hadrian's legions in the 200 AD when they built roads through the high passes. Feel the thrill on the steep ascents of Wrynose Pass and Hardknott Pass and pass the ruined Roman fort of Hardknott Fort before absorbing epic views of Upper Eskdale and Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. Continue to Ravenglass and enjoy a ride on the miniature Ravenglass and Eskdale narrow-gauge railway. Gaze at the ancient woodlands and fells of Eskdale from your cozy carriage, and after lunch (at your own expense) at a country inn, stop to contemplate the famously beautiful views over Wastwater, England’s deepest lake. Visit Muncaster Castle, a magnificent 14th-century house famed for its flower-filled gardens and World Owl Centre. Stroll around the gardens and visit the center; or if the house is open, enjoy an interior tour. Lastly, admire Coniston Fells and Coniston on route back to your hotel or guesthouse.

On day 3, take the 'Six Lakes Morning Tour' and see the spectacular scenery the National Park has to offer. Pass by Windermere, Brotherswater, Ullswater, Thirlmere, Grasmere Lake, and Rydal Water. Get dropped off in Windermere at 13:30 PM and have time to explore the village before departing back to Manchester at approximately 4-5PM.
