Choosing the right Lake District walking tours for your ability
When selecting the Lake District walking tours that will be best for you, you need to take into account your own fitness, the difficulty of the walk and also the conditions on the day that you are planning to make it. You could also find that there will be some walks that require you to have specific equipment, so make sure that you either own them, or are able to beg, steal or borrow them.
The weather can be a big issue when walking and it could even be the forecast that determines if a walk is going to go ahead. Rain and snow will cause issues for many walks, but often mist, fog or very high winds will put an end to the trip. Some would argue that there is no such thing as bad weather, it is just that walkers and guides have not been properly dressed or prepared, but the reality is that there are certain conditions that will lead to illness, injury or at best a tiring and miserable day.
Lake District guided walks are a joy in the Spring as there is so much to see and do, as well as there being a good chance that the weather will not let you down. You can watch the new creatures making their way in the world and then the new plant life bursting into colour. Although the weather is not going to be as good in autumn, there is the reverse of the colour scheme, greens turn to rust and the leaves leave the trees. Whichever season is chosen, the valleys and fells have an amazing performance to give.
Lake District walking tours need to be carefully judged as there are some places that will need a lot of skill and experience to master. Some of the walks will take you up hills that are more than 750 meters high and it can be a little frightening to be that high up. That it before you take into account how tired you could be if you were up there. It could be that you end up walking for around 8 hours as that is the longest one, although some are only three.
For those times you should cover somewhere between 5 and 15 miles. High hill walks include The Coniston Skyline, Langdale Pikes and Scafell Pike and the Corridor Route. If you prefer Lake District guided walks that are based more around fell exploring, then these will be easier and the paths tend to be well looked after. These will take between 3 to 6 hours of walking and you will cover between 5 miles and 10 miles.
Some of the most highly rated ones are High Spy to Catbells, Gleneramackin Valley and BannerdaleCragss and the Calf from Cautley Sprout.Lakes and valleys can also be explored and there is less reason to worry about the weather. Paths are good and there are plenty to choose from. Here they range from 3 to 6 hours walking and include around Derwent Water, Lacys Cave and Long Meg, and Ash Fell and Smardale Gill nature reserve.
