Christmas Ideas for walkers


We do have some unusual and high quality gifts for walkers as well as more traditional ones, all available from our Walkers shop.  We split them in to just 3 categories (I personally like the simplicity of that – not particularly good when I am presented with a vast range!) but they all reflect things which I would be delighted to receive at Christmas.

A Set of Yorkshire Dales Mugs

For the lover of the Yorkshire Dales, Where2walk now has its own exclusively designed set of Yorkshire Dales mugs, beautifully crafted to represent 6 of the major Dales. Together they make a perfect family of mugs and a memorable gift for those with a hankering for the Dales. My favourite mug is that of Swaledale but I suppose it would be, as the silhouette of my border collie Mist features prominently. Recently we have produced a brand new one – a Yorkshire 3 Peaks mug.

A Walking Book or a Simple Map

In most cases when we receive a present about walking or climbing it is a book, maybe the latest themed Wainwright book, Julia Bradbury or simply one with a nice set of photography to get lost in. I have my own personal favourites already (see here my top 10) but visit our shop for a wider choice and a range of maps (Click Here).

Even buying your loved one (or a friend)  a map may seem inadequate  but is often enough to keep them happy for hours as they pour over some new route, dreaming of the next big walk etc:… or that may be just me though! Even if you do not want one that is listed do enter Amazon via Where2walk and we are able to gain a small commission on anything booked (which all helps to keep the website updated and fresh).

A Print of the Lakes or Scotland

However if you are after something that is a little different but will be memorable how about a high quality photograph taken in the Lake District or the Highlands of Scotland? Where2walk now features an exclusive selection of prints taken by professional landscape photographer Wayne Dentith. Whether of Glencoe or Derwentwater, Haystacks or Plockton the images are powerful and thought provoking. Just click here to see the gallery, a great gift for any fan of the outdoors.

If you just want a place to buy more traditional walking  gear then try and visit the excellent Rugged Ways in Skipton and enjoy the knowledgeable service of Sam & Andy or just visit their website
