Welcome to Lake District

In addition to the lake, its water activities and tasty fish, the Eğirdir area offers year-round action, including the rose harvest in May and June, apple harvest in autumn and skiing in winter. History-loving hikers can explore the St Paul Trail and ascend to the lofty ruins of Sagalassos, perched among the rocky peaks of the Taurus Mountains. But you may find it is the kind hospitality of the locals, unaffected by mass tourism, that makes visiting most worthwhile.

Helvellyn and Striding Edge Guided Mountain Walk from Glenridding

Why not let your experienced instructors guide you safely, making the most of the rocky ridge to the summit of Helvellyn. This tour covers one of the most spectacular walking routes in the Lake District. Although it's not the longest, it does involve a little exposure along the Striding Edge ridge. Summits included on this route are Birkhouse Moor (718 metres/2356 feet), Helvellyn (950 metres/3117 feet) and Catstycam (890 metres/2920 feet). From Glenridding you will climb the good paths to Lanty's Tarn where you will follow the ridge onto Birkhouse Moor with wonderful views of the crags along Striding Edge and Helvellyn and down in the opposite direction over Ullswater to the Eden Valley. The route now follows the ridge climbing onto Striding Edge where you will follow the sharp ridge until the final steep climb to the summit of Helvellyn. From the summit you will descend over Swirral Edge to the summit of Catstycam where you will again have great views down to Ullswater and back across Red Tarn to Striding Edge. A grassy descent from Catstycam will bring you down onto the main path to the old Greenside Mines and on to Glenridding.
