Experience dramatic scenery whilst living life on the edge. Your heart will be in your mouth but your eyes (if you’re brave enough to keep them open) will be taking in the gorgeous views as you climb high above Honister Slate Mine, to the Infinity Bridge suspending 2,000 feet high above the Lake District National Park.
If the Infinity Bridge sounds a bit much but you still fancy an adrenaline rush, try out the Via Ferrata route instead. The path, used by miners to get up the mountain, now provides an exciting course to take in the magnificent natural surroundings.
Book in for a meal at the Michelin-starred Forest Side, headed up by famed chef and experienced forager Kevin Tickle. Here you can taste the freshest of ingredients, plucked directly from the Cumbrian landscape.
Dive headfirst into one of the freshwater lakes in Cumbria. There’s a huge variety of spots to choose from across the county, from secluded mountain pools to easily accessible lakes – the shallow waters of Burnmoor Tarn are a great place to start.
Forget travelling to South America – Penrith’s Llama Karma Kafé is the place to get your fix of llama fun. Mini-treks around the Lake District let you discover the personalities of these woolly critters.
