Dales Way Walking Holiday

81 miles. Book your Dales Way Walking Holiday with the local experts.

“A fine walk through the heart of the Dales following the river valleys/dales from Ilkley to Kendal”.

For anyone attempting their first multi day walk the Dales Way is ideal. Aside from a remote section in the middle the Dales Way generally follows the valleys and dales on low level ground, is well sign posted and visits many of iconic sites and views of the Yorkshire Dales.

The two itineraries below are the most popular but you may wish to plan shorter or longer days, just let us know or ask our advice.

For more details on the route (and my personal account of the walk) refer to our Dales Way page
