The distant Lake District, from the Howgill fells, cumbria

If you're only planning to take a few days away, why not choose a selection of individual downloadable routes, like this one (pictured above) from The Lune Valley and Howgills walkers guide, rather than taking a complete guidebook. If you find you enjoy the area you have visited, you can always buy the whole guidebook for further adventures in the future. Simply 'browse routes' on any one of our book pages on the website.

NEW BMC Winter Climbing guidance for the Lake District. Download this booklet to make sure your winter climbing is responsible and ethical. There's still plenty of snow and ice in the Lake District.
