Walking & Trekking

We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of the countries best know walking areas as well as some incredibly beautiful and less well known walking destinations right on the doorstep.

With the Dalesway starting from Ilkley, the Yorkshire dales National Park just down the road and the lake district, Northumberland and Derbyshire's Peak District within two hours drive, there is a lifetimes worth of classic walking terrain within easy access.

These areas are all well known and well documented but we'd like to introduce you to some of the fantastic walking areas on the doorstep. We'll be adding introductions to areas and walking routes to this page but if you have some favourites that we haven't suggested yet please get in touch with your walking routes and little known gems to enquiries@backcountryuk.com and we'll add them.
