Ten Lakes Spectacular Tour of the Lake District from Keswick
The tour includes a lake cruise, a visit to the 4,000-year-old Castlerigg Stone Circle, set high on the fells and time in Keswick for lunch. From within the circle, you will get picture-perfect views of some of the Lake District’s highest peaks.
You will travel over the famous Kirkstone and Honister passes whilst enjoying some spectacular mountain scenery. From beautiful valleys to waterfalls and traditional Lakeland villages, there will be plenty of stops for admiring the views and taking photographs.
The tour highlights also include lakes and sights such as Kirkstone Pass - Lakeland's highest mountain pass, Ashness Bridge and Surprise View, Borrowdale, Honister Mountain Pass, Buttermere Valley, Thirlmere, Grasmere, Rydal and Ambleside.
Your lunch stop will be in one of the local villages, where you can try a typical pub lunch, or seek out a charming restaurant. You will also get the chance to stretch your legs at either the magnificent lake of Derwent water or Ullswater, where you can enjoy a cruise and see the Lake District from the tranquillity of the Lake.

We traveled in a small group (only 6 of us) from Keswick, with our tour guide Mark. Mark was well-suited to guide us, providing lots of details and information about the Lakes, the history, and the general area. We had lots of interesting stops, including the slate mine, Grasmere, a ferry ride on Lake Windemere (from Bowness), and ended up at Castlerigg Stone Circle. I know Mark can't control the weather, but despite some cloudiness, it was really quite good. Plus, just on cue, the sun came out at the Stone Circle. This tour is not strenuous and allows ample time for rest breaks, lunch, and photography. Highly recommend
