Cumbria Way Highlights

  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of the English Lake District - a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Cumbria Way is an exhilarating walk which traverses the stunning Lake District National Park and provides an excellent introduction to the charms of England's most mountainous area.
Stretching from Ulverston on the shores of Morecambe Bay to the historic Border City of Carlisle the route offers 70 miles of walking through some of the most scenic and inspiring landscapes in Britain.

The Cumbria Way is essentially a low-level walk. It follows old packhorse tracks along valleys and over passes and provides breathtaking mountain views without actually going to any of the high summits.

The route is dotted with charming villages and towns, filled with delightful shops, galleries and the warmest of Cumbrian welcomes.

Most people complete the trail in 6 days but we recommend you allow additional days for sightseeing or a foray to a mountain summit in this enchanting landscape.
