Full description
Start your day with a climb up to the Kirkstone Pass Inn, where you will take in the scenic view of Lake Windermere and Ambleside. Then descend into Kirkstone Pass and down to Brothers Water, along the Ullswater shore with a stop for photos.

Head north and west towards Castlerigg, where a natural plateau commands a superb 360-degree view over the surrounding fells. A short walk then takes you to the head of Derwentwater for lunch before traveling to 'Surprise View,' one of the most stunning viewpoints in the Lake District.

From there, the road rises toward the Honister Slate Mine at the head of the pass. After a brief stop, descend slowly down the path as it twists and turns towards the Vale of Lorton, one of the lushest and prettiest parts of the Northern Lakes. The spectacular scenery continues as we move on to Moss Force Waterfall.

The scenery softens and the fells decline into hills as we descend into the Newlands Valley, then head back towards Keswick and start the journey down towards Ambleside. On the way, we will pass Thirlmere and then along the picturesque mountain pass of Dunmail Raise. We will journey past Grasmere village along the shores of Grasmere. The road winds along the shore until we arrive at Rydal Water, the tenth and final lake on our tour.
