Dales Way

  • A long distance trail through rugged Yorkshire and the majestic Lake District.
  • Lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England.
  • Diverse walking from remote moorland to the hills of Cumbria.
  • Relax in cosy and friendly country inn’s.
  • View the unfolding vistas through the eyes of Wordsworth and Ruskin.

The Dales Way crosses two national parks and takes you from the rugged magnificence of Yorkshire all the way to the majestic finery of the Lake District. This walk is full of diversity, beginning with lush meadowlands and black bordered moors of the Yorkshire Dales, and ending with the luminous waters of Windermere and the splendour of the Lake District.

The Dales Way is full of natural wonder and is one of the greenest walks you will ever take, with lush, emerald valleys, fields, crags and fells to accompany you every step of the way.
