Imagine a typical family walk.
Mum or Dad lead the way, surprised they can still remember how to read a map - it’s been years. At the same time, the little ones dawdle along, distracted by a sheep here and an earthworm there.
But if you were following a Tale Trail, suddenly a walk is no longer a walk and you’d find out that Eric is a young, curious and somewhat different sheep from the rest. And you would soon discover that Luna has six legs like all earthworms but flashes like a lighthouse all night long, unlike his peers.
And don’t think these characters are just fictional pieces of work; adults can feel young at heart too and bring those like Eric and Luna to life with a Tale Trail.
Written by mountain expert Anja Phoenix, each unique Tale Trail has a colourful map that kids can follow on one side, and a fun story on the other side which can be used to spot things and search for clues along the trail.
All of a sudden, a couple of hours have passed and you've not heard a peep out of the little ones – and best of all they've been active and engaged throughout, without even realising.
Spending family time in the great British outdoors not only stimulates your imagination, but also encourages happy and healthy habits.
There are currently eight Tale Trails out there, each covering an area of the picturesque Lake District.
And we can now reveal that Regatta’s very own Tale Trail will be available in time for the summer holidays this July.
Be happy in the fresh air and let the little ones take control of the map and introduce you to their world; a world of talking animals and unlimited fun.
