Walk for 7 days over the most exhilarating stages of the Pennine Way. From Malham in the Yorkshire Dales to Alston in the North Pennines, cover 170km (106 miles) of bold scenery on an independent walking holiday.
The Pennine Way crosses wild moors, high hills and ancient fields. Set off from Malham at the start of your trek, quickly reaching Malham Cove and later on Malham Tarn. An ascent of Pen-y-ghent, one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, sets the scene for the grandeur of the walk. Progress North through Hawes and Keld, leaving the limestone Dales behind for the North Pennines. Highlights of the route include the isolated Tan Hill Inn, the waterfall at High Force, the vast glacial ampitheatre of High Cup Nick, and the highest point in the Pennines on Cross Fell.
At the end of each day is the satisfaction of having walked a full Pennine Way stage. The route's reputation as boggy is undeserved nowadays, thanks to many path improvements. This trip follows the official route, missing nothing out. By completing this Central section, the Southern and Northern sections can be walked in roughly 6 days each to complete the route between Edale and Kirk Yetholm.
Your accommodation along the Pennine Way is in a mixture of welcoming guesthouses and old inns. Some of the stopovers are quintessentially Pennine and with luck will leave a lasting impression of tranquility.
