Mountain Goat tours from major northern cities hit the tarmac running

Spring is well and truely underway in the Lake Disrict, the sun is shining and the temperatures are gradually rising.

Daffodiils in full bloom line the roadsides and grassy knolls around the Mountain Goat office in windermere.

The Easter holidays are in full swing and tourists from around the UK are flocking to the national park in force to enjoy the spring weather, explore the Lakes' beauty spots and climb the many fells the area has to offer the adventurous traveller.

Many may also have chosen to visit the great northern cities to enjoy a week of well deserved rest and relaxation surrounded by home comforts, good pubs and family friendly activities. But does this scratch the adventurous itch? We don't think so.

If you're of a like mind Mountain Goat are departing Chester, Manchester and Liverpool five days a week to explore two of the country's most breathtaking national parks, The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Snowdonia.
