transportation1thumbnail.jpgMost of the towns in the Lake District are small, and fairly easy to navigate within. Buses, taxis, and car rentals are always available, but in many times a bike rental or your own two feet may be your best bet.


When it comes to buses, within most of the Lake District’s small towns there are usually a couple of buses that drive from one end of town to the next – not too complicated. Bariloche is the one area where you may find yourself just a little confused by the bus system. But don’t fret, here is all the info you need to know which bus will take you where.

First of all, take a look at the color of the bus. Red? Maroon? Blue? Or green? That’s the first sign to get you going in the right direction.

Bike Rentals

In all of these Lake District towns there are bike rental locations on nearly every other corner. If you are having problems finding one ask the attendant at your place of lodging. More than likely they supply their own bikes for rent, and if not, they will definitely be able to point you in the right direction.
