at Ullswater 'Steamers'
Posted 17th April 2014
Walkers looking for something different to do over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend can take a blissful Easter Sunday walk that also combines a cruise on stunning Ullswater.
The 2014 ‘Steamer Walks’ are back for the season and April 20 will see a group led by a Lake District National Park ranger first cruising to Howtown from Glenridding and then walking back under the guidance of the ranger to their starting point.
The walk will take participants over the summit of Place Fell and Boredale House and will be around eight miles long. Around seven hours needs to be allocated for this fabulous day out and suitable footwear, such as walking boots, is essential along with windproof and waterproof clothing.
Participants should also bring a packed lunch and enough money for the Steamer fare, which is £6.30 for an adult and £3.15 for a child.
Ullswater ‘Steamers’ marketing manager, Rachel Bell, says: “We have a whole programme of ‘Steamer Walks’ running across the next few months, so keen walkers can explore new terrain under the expert guidance of a Lake District National Park ranger. This should encourage many people to get active and get out into the fresh air, enjoying breathtaking views both on the lake and on the fells around it.
“This is the time of year to see Wordsworth’s famous daffodils out around the lake, so we are expecting a good turn out this weekend.”
