Take in the breathtaking sights of this National Park
See some of England's highest mountains
Enjoy the view from a Cessna 172
Taking off from Carlisle Airport, this sightseeing tour over the Lake District soars like a local Osprey, giving flyers a true bird's eye view. Fly over the lush waters and green fells in a Cessna 172 and survey the full beauty of this popular holiday destination. The flight goes over Bassenthwaite Lake, where many Ospreys are known to reside, and cruises past some of the highest mountains in England. Sit back and relax as you take in views normally only seen by the most hardened of ramblers who walk the land.
