This rolling national park, a World Heritage Site, is home to over 200 fells, pikes and dales means it’s a mecca for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. A walking vacation in the Lake District
is the perfect way to explore, from the iconic Scafell Pike to lesser-known hill trails and lake-side routes. The Cat Bells Circular hike even made it into the 35 best hikes in the world

to be discovered, such as the Glyders and Cnicht mountain, the Matterhorn of Wales.
This area in the north east of England is a lesser-visited pocket of the UK with so much to offer. Discover countless imposing castles and explore the winding roman architecture of Hadrian’s Wall, which flanks the north of the county, on a cultural Northumberland vacation
. Cycle the breadth of the county on a coast-to-coast cycling trip
, or explore on foot
and visit the place that David Attenborough called ‘nature’s paradise’ - the Farne Islands, where clusters of puffins cling to the rocks.
Discover another side to the UK and cruise the wild Scottish islands
to discover abundant seabird, puffin and arctic tern. Hop from island to island to uncover ancient relics, towering monoliths and Iron Age dwellings steeped in historical significance. Photograph and wonder at wildlife like fulmars, kittiwakes, guillemots, gannets, dolphins and whales.
