It is difficult for us to imagine now, but two hundred years ago the Lake District was thought ugly and quite literally terrible! The English Lake District was one of the birthplaces of our modern Western love of rugged and ‘wild’ landscape. Wordsworth, the great Romantic poet, and a “Lakeman” through and through, lived in Grasmere in the heart of this beautiful region and through his glorious verse did much to change the public perception of the landscape.

This compact National Park is often thought of, by both British and overseas visitors, as the most beautiful region in the British Isles. Surprisingly this iconic landscape is a mere 35 miles across. Lake Windermere, the largest of the sixteen lakes, is just ten and a half miles long.

Our tour has been timed to coincide with what experience suggests is the most likely period for the best that Spring can offer. And there is nowhere in the Lake District to surpass Borrowdale, that narrow defile that drains into Derwent Water, the queen of England’s lakes. Borrowdale’s woodland is mixed and extensive, and while every spring is different, the colour of the landscape is always a feature at this time of year. The colours are often spectacular and provide seemingly never-ending photographic opportunities.

A special advantage of Borrowdale is the sheer variety of possibilities on our doorstep. Whether we walk from the hotel, or drive, it is a matter of minutes to reach a range of wonderful viewpoints. Lakeside views, clifftop prospects, woodland vistas, intimate details… even landscapes recovering from past mining and quarrying activities… there is almost a lifetime of photographic opportunity here in this one valley alone.

We will also use our comfortable minibus to travel further afield, visiting some of the well-known, iconic locations as well as some little known “secret” spots that we have discovered over the years.

This tour is led by Charlie Waite who is really looking forward to getting back to The Lakes again. Charlie has a wealth of experience photographing Lakeland landscapes and is an expert at finding those magical compositions which often elude others. Charlie will be joined by photographer Keron Psillas.

This tour is designed to appeal to all photographers, whatever your ability level.

The tour will be based in the beautifully situated Borrowdale Hotel on the shores of Derwent Water. There will be some walking across rough terrain, so a degree of physical fitness is required.

Charlie will be joined by internationally award-winning photographer and author, Keron Psillas. For more information: www.keronpsillas.com

    Full board

For tours outside of the UK, we will select a recommended flight which will depart from a London airport to the destination. In most cases (unless stated otherwise), the tour leaders will greet you at the destination airport from this flight and return you to the airport at the end of the tour.

Please DO NOT book your flights until advised to do so by the office. Tours have to become viable before we select the recommended flight.

Once a tour has enough bookings to make it viable, you will receive an email to alert you that the recommended flights have been uploaded to your client area on the website.

You are welcome to make alternative travel arrangements. If doing so, please ensure you are at the destination airport for the arrival time of the recommended flight to ensure you can take the transfer to the hotel. Alternatively you can arrange your own transfers and meet the group at the hotel on the first night.
