Mountain Biking

Altura Trail is the longest purpose-built, 12 mile, mountain bike trail in Whinlatter Forest Park. The Altura Trail puts the mountain back into biking and has been built for experienced riders with good off road skills and a higher level of fitness and stamina.

Organised Activities

More than Mountains are outdoor activity providers offering climbing, scrambling, guided walks and navigation courses.

Guided walks can be booked with Keswick Rambles and are offered at 3 levels: steep, high and rocky for those seeking a challenge (fitness essential); a good strenuous walk with several ascents and descents; or a fairly easy walk suitable for all active walkers.

Nichol End Marine offers a wide range of watersports, sailing and kayaking and offers tuition. Please ask for a 15% discount card during your stay.
