Ullswater Outdoor Festival 2017

The Ullswater Outdoor Festival 2017 is due to take place from Saturday 23rd September – Sunday 1st October, packed full of guided walks, outdoor adventure and experiences, as well as films and talks that celebrate the great outdoors, with a special focus on Ullswater.

As ever, the backbone of the Ullswater Outdoor Festival is the Guided Walks by the Lake District National Park Rangers. The voluntary rangers have walked the hills for years and know the area, the people and the history like the back of their hand. Join one of their guided walks and discover great new places, learn all about the natural history and get an expert insight into the Ullswater Valley.


To help pick out what you would like to see and do, we have listed all the events, guided walks and talks that will be taking place throughout the Ullswater Outdoor Festival below. Look out for live music from Jimmy Brown on Sunday 24th September at the Inn on the Lake, as well as an interesting talk on Thursday 28th September from Richard Leafe, CEO LDNPA on the Lake District and World Heritage Status, what does it mean for us?
