This World Heritage site is Home to England's largest lakes and highest mountains, the Lake District is an area of electrifying natural beauty and stunning landscapes. It has inspired numerous writers – William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter to name a couple, artists and poets and you will not fail to fall under its magical spell either as you cycle from tranquil Lake Bassenthwaite in the north to the breath-taking Lake Windermere in the south.

This is a strenuous cycling holiday with an utterly staggering ride, which we want you all to enjoy, and as a result we recommend electric bikes which are just perfect for this topography. Our Electric Lakes tour also offers a cruise by steam boat on Ullswater, by launch on Coniston Water and by steam train to Windermere, but also to cruise using two wheels past fells and crags, hill hamlets and hidden valleys, sheep clad slopes and of course, dreamy lake shores too. Much of the route is through stunning woods, past cosy inns and over fords to small breweries and tiny water mills. Enjoy wonderful gardens, a Georgian town, an intriguing castle, the homes of Ruskin, Wordsworth and Potter, a exciting food scene and stays in 4 different locations from peaceful lake to an ancient market town and buzzing waterfront. No wonder we call it Electric Lakes!
