MOUNTAINS & FELLS

The mountains in the Lake District, which you will also see referred to as the ‘Cumbrian Mountains’ and, more commonly, the ‘Lakeland Fells’ are part of what makes the landscape so captivating. Every year, thousands of walkers, climbers and hikers flock to the valleys and slopes to enjoy breathtaking views and invigorating walks.

In total, there are over 900 square miles of Lake District slopes and lakes to enjoy, depending on what type of visit you want to have and your level of fitness and physical capabilities. There are four mountains in the Lake District that are over 3000 feet high: Scafell, Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. As well as this, there are dozens of other mountains and fells that offer different viewpoints and an array of different treks and paths to enjoy.
