The Cumbria Way
Cross the Lake District from South to North, starting in the attractive market town of Ulverston and finishing in historic Carlisle. Making use of the valley routes, The Cumbria Way is a classic 76 mile walk which is by and large low-level (with a couple of days in the higher fells), but is surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery, making it the perfect introduction to the Lake District!
Macs Adventure have been booking adventures on the Cumbria Way for ten years now, so we know the route and all the accommodations well. As you walk from one pretty Lake District village to another, you can rest assured that at the end of the day, a warm welcome awaits at your cosy B&B or traditional inn, along with your luggage which will have been sped ahead of you.
It is possible to do the Cumbria Way over either 6 or 7 nights, with the longer itinerary giving you an extra stop in the idyllic Borrowdale Valley, which Wainwright called 'the loveliest square mile in Lakeland'. Whichever itinerary you choose, our knowledgeable team will make sure they craft the perfect adventure for you on the wonderful Cumbria Way.
