Whinlatter Forest Trails - perfect for keen mountain bikers - is just up the road and the local fell road passes are a challenge for any adventurous road cyclist. The west coast mainline stops at nearby Penrith making London only a 3 hour journey by train.

Our friendly office team of around 25 staff are widely travelled, but love the Lake District life. With views of Skiddaw and the Borrowdale Valley from our office, we are ideally placed for those who want to work in the dynamic work of adventure travel but also enjoy an outdoorsy, healthy life. All KE staff travel with our groups - we know we are only as good as the travel experience we have ourselves.
