There is something immensely satisfying in walking a Long Distance footpath. Travelling long distances across the country (or a number of maps) and finishing in a completely different place is always full of interest and satisfies a primeval need in many of us to explore and conquer.
All over the world these long distance walks (trails if we live in America!) are becoming increasingly popular. In Britain we have a number of excellent official and non-official footpaths criss crossing the country. Many follow old historical routes (such as George Fox’s route from Pendle Hill to south Windermere), many are routed to visit the best sites in an area (such as the Bracken Way in the Yorkshire Dales) but most have just come of age because they make sense.
No walking is ever bad but I have found some better than others. Roughly in order of my favourites.
Choose an area and devise your own long distance path. Britain has an endless number of rights of way (and access land), connect them up and walk them over a few days.
Alternatively let us devise one to suit your needs as part of our Tailor Made service.
If it is memories that you are after on your holidays take a long distance walk, if its health and fitness nothing could be better. Try one and see for yourself.
Enjoy your walking
