Here at ‘Out There People’ we’re very lucky to be located in the beautiful Lake District, an area enjoyed by all. If you fancy a short break Lake District Walking Holiday then this two day programme can take you into the heart of the Mountains, enabling you to enjoy some of the most spectacular walks and views in Britain. Combined, our guides have over 60 years walking experience in the Lake District and between them they’ve covered every hill, valley, lake and tarn! So whether you want to do some Wainwright Walks, or simply get away from it all in a quieter area to enjoy some Lake District Guided Walking, we can accommodate your needs. We’ll be flexible with the programme, taking into account the needs of the group and the weather conditions at the time.


The aim of this programme is to help you enjoy the spectacular walking scenery the Lake District has to offer. At the same time, you’ll get plenty of hints and tips about undertaking your own walks, as well as building your knowledge about the local environment, history and culture.

Is it for me?
Our walking days are suitable for anyone simply wanting to enjoy the beautiful Lake District Mountains and valleys. To help you judge what walks suit your requirements, we’ve provided a grading system that considers several different factors – the length of the walk, how much ascent has to be undertaken and how rough the terrain is.

It’s important to be realistic about your level of fitness and suitability for different grades of walks. It’s also worth remembering that changing weather, hot or cold, can have a real impact on ability and stamina. Under 18s must always be accompanied by their parent or guardian for any of the activities we provide.

Strenuous– Long, full-day walks of 10 miles / 16 km and over. Some steep ascents and descents and difficult ground covered. A very good level of fitness and stamina is required.
Hard– Long, energetic walks up to 9 miles / 14 km. Some ascents or descents may be quite steep. A good level of fitness is required.
Moderate – Medium length walks around 3 – 9 miles / 5 – 15 km. A reasonable level of fitness is required, on hilly ground with rising and falling levels.
Easy – Short, usually flat walks around 2-5 miles / 3-8 km going at a leisurely pace. Paths may be uneven. These walks do not require you to wear walking boots.



How long does it last?
You can enjoy a single day walk, or we can take you on a series of walks over several days, based on your requirements and our availability. A normal walking day sees us setting of around 9.30am and finishing around 5pm each day.
