The Lake District has stunning scenery and presents many opportunities for anyone wanting to partake in outdoor activities. From enjoying some of the classic Wainwright’s Lake District walks to adding a hint of excitement such as learning to scramble, rock climb or even learning some navigation skills we offer a 3 day short adventure break in The Lake District.

Skylark Mountain Adventures in partnership with 1 Park Road, a boutique hotel in the Lake District, are offering short walking breaks with luxury accommodation and some adventure activities combined.

The walking holiday in the Lake District, is guided by one of Skylark Mountain Adventures experienced and friendly members of staff and you will explore the beauty of the Lake District Mountains staying at 1 Park Road that will be exclusively booked out for these short breaks

After a friendly chat with your instructor, maybe booking dinner at 1 Park Road  the next 3 days will be tailored to suit you. Ensuring you get the most out of your Lake District adventure.
