The 20-mile Ullswater Way loop in in the Lake District is picturesque along every stretch. Walk along the trail on calm days and you can become entranced by the reflection of the surrounding fells in the mirror-like water, while in breezier conditions the lake shows its dramatic side as the wind whips up the waves.
Gnarly crags and rugged escarpments contrast with stretches of genteel parkland and green pastures, hills cloaked in woodland and the stunning sight of the Aira Force waterfall. All-in-all the route is a Lake District delight, jam packed with interest and scenery that jostles for attention.
To enable people to make the most of the route we offer three different ways of walking it:
- The one-day challenge event for those looking to do the whole 20 miles in one go.
- A weekend where we stay in Patterdale and break the route down into two 10-mile day walks.
- Two day walks where you organise your own accommodation and then join us at the start of each day’s route.
