Owing to many clients' preference for flexibility, and the variation in flight price according to season and availability, the price quoted excludes the cost of international flights, which we will happily arrange for you. Flights to Latin America can be daytime or overnight, while the return flight is always overnight, so you will need to add at least one day to arrive at the total length of your holiday.

This really is ideal territory for self-guided exploration. You can stop where you like for photos (and you'll be spoilt for choice in this picturesque landscape), the roads are in good condition and well-signed on the whole.

What You Say

...great fun on the self-drive pick-up along the lost dusty tracks of lake district - a bit treacherous in places! Recommend reading "Between Extremes" (by John McCarthy and Brian Keenan) before or during trip. Delightfully amusing but also informative and an enjoyable read.
