Hiking

Experience the very best of the Yorkshire Dales and the Three Peaks

The Yorkshire Dales is home to one of the largest and finest limestone landscapes in Britain!

Since their formation nearly 350 million years ago in a shallow tropical sea near the equator, the limestones of the Yorkshire Dales have been heavily sculpted by the action of ice, water and geological faulting into a unique and dramatic ‘karst’ environment. A true masterpiece of nature!

In just one day, the intrepid walker can be summiting one of the famous Three Peaks (Ingleborough, Penyghent, Whernside), scampering across magnificent limestone pavements adorned with rare flowers, peering into the depths of the many potholes and caves, gazing up at towering crags, cliffs and gorges, ambling along quiet rivers and scenic valleys or learning about the rich mining history.

Mountain Safety Courses

If you’re someone who hasn’t ventured into the mountains before, but wants to give it a go and learn some skills, then why not come on a mountain safety course? These are so much more than just learning to navigate. It’s all about keeping safe and comfortable in the mountains, so you can be both confident in,  and enjoy the wonderful experience of exploring, this magical environment.  For example, we will teach you what clothing/equipment to take, where to go, how to plan a route, how to understand the mountain weather forecast and tips for choosing your route based on this, map and compass work and what to do in the rare case that things go wrong. Get in touch for a chat and we will happily put together a single or multi-day course for you based on your wishes and requirements!

Don’t forget we do offer guided walks, and this can also be a great place to start your hiking career in the mountains too, as you’ll be guided by a highly experienced, local instructor, who can offer plenty of tips and advice during your day out on the hills!
