The largest National Park in England at 912 square miles (2362 sq km) is named after its 14 lakes and tarns. Smooth valleys and steep ridges of hard volcanic rock were created by glacial action, creating England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike (978 metres) and deepest, longest lakes, including the famed Windermere (14.8 sq km). Each lake and valley has its own character and the Park offers unrivalled opportunities to enjoy the mountain (or fell) scenery with watersports and steamer trips on the lakes, rambles and hiking on the many challenging ridges, cycling on paths and mountain biking.
