Aside from the obvious attraction of walking there’s so much more to be done such as climbing and sailing upon one of the awesome rivers within the national park. Soar over the Lake District in a glider and see it from a totally different perspective or spend a peaceful day fishing in the Eden Valley. Sample some of the fantastic fresh fish caught by locals either at one of the highly-commended restaurants or at one of the popular farmer’s markets which are held on the third Tuesday of every month. The atmosphere at these markets is always friendly and welcoming and it’s always well worth the visit; the quality of food is impeccable, as is the service.
