The Lake District National Park Authority has published details of a number of events taking place through the month of May, which has two bank holidays.
Among the happenings is the Ulverston Walking Festival
, which may give those donning their walking shoes
a chance to explore some of the gentler, rolling scenery of south Cumbria away from the high mountains further north.
It also noted the variety of guided walks the authority is running, including ones around Coniston, Hartsop, the Langdales and Walla Crag near Keswick.
There will also be fishing festivals
for those who fancy bringing their fishing tackle
, the authority noted.
National park events organiser Andrea Hills said: "While a hill hike is often the highlight of a Lake District holiday, we are keen to promote culture too. There is an abundance of arts, film, food and music festivals
throughout the year."
As well as having a walking festival
, Ulverston is the starting point for the Cumbria Way, a walking route of over 70 miles that runs through the county to Carlisle.
Along the way, it takes in Lake District scenery such as Coniston Water, Tarn Hows, the Langdales and Borrowdale.
