High Mountain Passes

No reviews, be the first!

With its vast plains brushed with wildflowers, rambling hilltops and dense woodlands, England is a country tailor-made for hiking – so much so that each year millions of hikers happily don their waterproofs and brave the notoriously changeable weather to enjoy the views.

A number of key hiking spots are dotted around the country, including middle England’s Peak District national park and the famous Yorkshire Dales, but for the highest peaks in the country, head to the region nicknamed ‘The Lakes’. The Lake District, a national park set in North West England is famous for its mountainous terrain (known as ‘fells’), windswept mountain passes and, of course, its lakes. This is a region that has inspired much of Britain’s famous literature (including Beatrix Potter and famous British poet William Wordsworth) and a walk along one of its spectacular mountain passes is a worthy addition to any hiker’s bucket list.
