Lakes Supertours offers day and half‑day tours of the Lake District in eight and sixteen seat minibuses. It's an experience not to be missed.
For thousands of years the lake District has supported miners, metal workers and farmers in one of the most extraordinary landscapes ever known to mankind.
Once dismissed by 'society' as a wasteland, the area eventually came to be seen as a place of inspiration for a thousand poets, writers, philosophers, adventurers and artists, including such men and women as William and Dorothy Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin and Alfred Wainwright, to name but five.
As a visitor, you will be able to gain just a small insight into the human and natural community, and into the 'terroir', that is 'The Lakes'. But that insight — and perhaps a love — will stay with you forever.
We have a range of half‑day and day‑long tours to suit a range of tastes. Some include boat trips or train rides. Some are focused more on the Lake District's literary heritage. But they all give you an opportunity to view a landscape, and a culture, that people travel the length of the world to see.
We can also offer tailor‑made tours for families or small groups.
