16 top multi-activity adventures in the Lakes

Well thought out Adventure and Countrysport days and weekends to enjoy in Cumbria

How great is it when you receive a Christmas present with the batteries included?  
Or the airline gives a decent amount of time to cross the entire airport for your connecting flight?
Or the taxi driver takes a different route so you end up on the right side of the road?

This is what Adventure and Country Sports packages should be. Well thought out activities and weekends that just fit together. Low travel, high convenience and typically cost saving too.

We are local, we know how long it takes to get to different places and how long activities actually end up taking.

Below are our 8 top recommended packages for weekends in the Lake District and our top whole day experiences to make the most of your trip to Cumbria.

We also have a range of accommodation options which fit well in the holiday and day trip itineraries. 

Weekend packages that fill Saturday and give everyone enough time to get home on Sunday, no matter where they live in the county (the Lake District is almost certainly 3.5 hours away from you)
