Home » Advice » The Lake District – Perfect for Adrenaline Junkies


Going away for a weekend break in Britain? There are many different places to choose from and you will enjoy your time away at all of them but for a truly great british holiday there is only one place to go. The Lake District. Thanks to the credit crunch the popularity in UK based holidays has increased and many local companies have noticed a large upturn in bookings for a holiday in the Lake District in 2008.

The Lake District is hard to beat because of the sheer gorgeousness of the scenery around you. It doesn’t get much better than walking around the lake district on a sunny day, the atmosphere and vastness of the area gets inside of you and makes you relax within minutes of arriving.

If you are looking for a bit more of an adrenaline rush a Lake district holiday is still the place for you. Activities available include mountain biking, speed climbing and rock climbing. Most pro’s prefer the rough edges of the Eastern Crags for their rock climbing as there are a great number of different routes to climb up. Another favourite is Buttermere but this is not as well known by most tourists.

For biking enthusiasts the Grizedale Forest is one of the best places to cycle in Britain let alone the Lake District. The different routes cater to all abilities so the route you go will depend on how daring you are! Obviously for a popular location there are many places to stay especially if you are there self catering holiday in the lake district but I would advise you to book early as you don’t want to travel and find everywhere is booked!
