Highlander Pegasus

The second-largest format is named after a constellation in the northern sky, named after the winged horse Pegasus in Greek mythology. It is easily recognisable because it is dominated by a prominent asterism known as the Great Square.

Enjoy a 56-kilometre-long hiking adventure through this world-famous destination for its beautiful lakes and mountainous fells, carved out long ago by glaciers.
