Come and join us on our Yorkshire Dales Weekend of relaxed walking in a small sociable group, sharing the adventure, making new friends and enjoying the authentic Mountain Bunkhouse experience.

With the iconic mountains of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent forming part of the the Pennines and climbed by thousands every year, either separately or as part of the popular Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, the Yorkshire Dales form the very southern tip of our beloved Lake District, with these peaks being famously included by Alfred Wainwright as the Southern Fells.

The Yorkshire Dales is home to outstanding scenery, great castles, abbeys and a breathtakingly peaceful atmosphere. At its heart are two very special protected areas – Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) – as well as it having the Forest of Bowland AONB and North Pennines AONB as its close neighbours. These protected areas are truly not to be missed.

Each of the Yorkshire Dales has a different character. The Southern Dales are less remote, yet still wildly beautiful. The Northern Dales provide wild heather moorland and valleys full of hay meadows, dry stone walls and barns.

We arrive on Friday evening to be greeted by our Host, settle in and enjoy a lovely freshly prepared meal whilst getting to know each other. A little music, fun and games whilst sat around a real fire … but don’t get carried away, we’re up early and out for a full days hiking, taking in Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Janet’s Foss, on another one of Britain’s favourite and iconic walks in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Have you ever scrambled up a waterfall?  If not, then this is your opportunity to have a go at something different!  Don’t worry, it’s only very short and your mountain leader will be with you to help and encourage you should you need them.

We return to our bunkhouse late afternoon to reflect on a brilliant day of trekking whilst being treated to another fantastic freshly prepared meal, followed by a great night of socialising!

After breakfast, those who fancy another adventure will be treated to a shorter walk taking in another fantastic route in this beautiful national park.

We visit Gaping Gill and the absolutely fantastic Ingleborough Cave! (click on the link for full details)

A unique and memorable experience not to be missed … this weekend’s itinerary is an absolute must for hiking lovers!
