Mountain Goat have been running tours into the Lake District for over 40 years, and are an award winning tour specialist, with an exciting and inspiring choice of guided sightseeing tours around the beautiful English Lake District. Their experienced and knowledgeable drivers give you an insight into some often, difficult to reach places if you were driving yourself. Of course, its a green mode of transport too – in that one minibus means less cars on the narrow roads in the Lake District. They are also a bit more nippy and flexible than a large coach.
Mountain Goat run a variety of themed tours – perhaps you’re interested in Beatrix Potter, or inspiring landscapes – or maybe you want to do 5 or 10 Lakes in a day and leave the driving to someone else.
Relax and enjoy the view and the knowledgeable commentary from their friendly guides, with day tours departing from Ambleside, Bowness, Grange, Grasmere, Kendal, Keswick and Windermere.
You can even create your own bespoke tour with exclusive private hire, of your own Mountain Goat, a great alternative if you and some friends wanted to go somewhere different together.
Mountain Goat will even collect you from the railway station or airport, and put together a selection of Lake District Short Break packages. Check them out here.
Tips/Hints: Get a fantastic lakes experience, by taking The 10 Lakes Spectacular.
Why we like it: Mountain Goat is a local business, that has developed over the years and won awards for its customer service – their drivers have an extensive knowledge on the area. It’s a great chance to leave the driving to someone else, a relaxing, stress free way to see the sights that doesn’t have a huge impact on the roads of the Lake District
