The Cumbria Way walk is an exhilarating, mainly low level journey through some of the most beautiful & contrasting landscapes that Cumbria has to offer. Offering majestic mountain scenery, lakes and tarns, woodland walks and long treks through glacial valleys as well as the traditional hospitality of Cumbrians, great accommodation and plenty of fine inns along the route. Having walked the route twice, and stages of it on numerous occasions, I can guarantee the Cumbria Way will leave you with a massive smile on your face and some fantastic memories.
