Cumbria Way Walking Route
Many walking holidays in the Lake District are quite strenuous, being England’s most mountainous area. However, The Cumbria Way is a trail with a near perfect balance of terrain and scenery.
The Cumbria Way is predominantly a low-level long distance footpath, which follows a line through lovely steep sided valleys through the heart of the Lake District National Park. It links the historic Cumbrian towns of Ulverston, on the shores of Morecambe Bay and Cumbrian coast and Carlisle, near the border with Scotland.
Each day, the diverse landscape reveals another facet of its appeal, which will have you reaching for your camera. From days spent walking in the lowlands, through to pastoral Cumbrian farmland, the heather-covered Cumbrian fells reveal stunning panoramas offering beautiful views of the landscape. Along your journey you pass through wonderful Lakeland towns, with good food, distinctive character and a high standard of accommodation-coupled with a warm Cumbrian reception on arrival.
