Event Description

Marvel at some of the most spectacular landscapes in Britain on possibly the best lower-level walk in the Lake District. This 12-mile guided walk tacks you on a journey through the Great and Little Langdale Valleys, situated in the very heart of the Lake District, enclosed by dramatic mountains such as Bow Fell, Crinkle Crags and the iconic Langdale Pikes.

This walk explores the beautiful valleys of Greater and Little Langdale via a lower level circuit around Lingmoor Fell. From steep rugged mountains to the most picturesque tarn in Lakeland, this walk delivers spectacular views at every point and showcases some of the finest views and most iconic Lake District landmarks.

A delightful walk of classic views, lakes, waterfalls, bridges, forests, and quaint villages, ideal for those wanting to explore Langdale as part of guided group and at a relaxed pace. Our expert Mountain Leaders will ensure you have a day to remember and enjoy exploring one of the most beautiful areas of the Lake District.

Highlights of the walk include:

  • Great Langdale and Little Langdale valleys
  • Blea Tarn (the most picturesque tarn in the Lake District)
  • Views of the Langdale Pikes from Elterwater
  • Chapel Stile and Skelwith Bridge
  • Slaters Bridge and Little Langdale Tarn
  • Cathedral Cave
  • Colwith Force (waterfall)
  • Low-level walk around Lingmoor Fell
  • Views of some of the biggest peaks in the Lake District


Where does it start?

The Langdale walk starts and finishes in the village of Elterwater which is a short 5-miles drive from Ambleside. There are plenty of hotels, B&Bs and hostels in the Elterwater and Langdale area if you plan to stay over before or after the walk. Ambleside is the closest large town with numerous accommodation and food options.

When is it?

There are several dates throughout the year. You can view the dates below or on the booking calendar above.

Is it for me? 

Discover Langdale is suitable for all levels. At just under 12-miles this is still a challenging distance so ensure you are able to walk for up to 8-hours over rough paths and tracks. This is a low-level walk and the pace of the day will be relaxed with plenty of rest points to enjoy the incredible views.
