Activities in the UK and Europe
Walking & Hill Walking
One of the most interesting ways of appreciating the natural surroundings that you are staying amongst, is to walk through the countryside and experience all that nature has to offer. Wherever you are staying in England, Scotland or Ireland, LTR can arrange highly expert guides to lead you on any level of walk. There is certainly no better way to explore these still largely agricultural and wooded countries with more than their fair share of hills and mountains, than on a lovely walk. LTR advises on the most suitable routes together with highly experienced guides so that almost all areas of these countries can be safely and responsibly explored.
You may choose a challenging hike into the mountains to experience some breathtaking scenery and enjoy a picnic lunch while out or perhaps you might prefer a gentle stroll into a local village to arrive in time for lunch at a gastro-pub. Walking can provide a true escape and break from the strains and stresses of modern life. In many areas, walking is the best way to spot some of the endemic wildlife and enjoy the flora and fauna of the area. The size of many estates in the UK allows guests to wander over several thousands of acres that are still privately owned; land, which has been very well tended and preserved to enhance the environment.
For those of you with artistic talents, there are many walks that can be arranged to take you somewhere to set up your paints and easel and record the beauty of the surrounding area. The UK is an absolute paradise for walkers as there is either free access to land or a patchwork quilt of bridleways and foot paths, allowing access to vast tracts of unspoilt countryside. Whether in the highlands scaling a Munro, walking across the ancient moors, climbing the fells of Cumbria or ambling through a wood in the Cotswolds, the choice available is more diverse than anywhere else in Europe.
