England Walks

Walking the Footpaths and Countryside of England

Walking and Hiking Trips in England

There are few things more quintessential than walking England’s timelessly romantic landscapes. Its 140,000 miles of footpaths give testimony not only to the depth of this country’s walking tradition, but also to its continued passion for walking.

Swaths of rolling green pastures checked with endless stone fences, wild heathered moorlands, and craggy mountains with lonely tarns, are exquisitely punctuated with ancient stone circles, roman roads, medieval castles, abandon abbey and quiet villages with tiny shops and cozy pubs creating a compelling fabric of countryside rich for wandering.

While the possibilities are endless, at present we offer two different types of walking trips is England. Our version of the England Coast-to-Coast is a classic long-distance walking experience that crosses the country from east to west and passes through the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. Our England – From the Dales to the Lakes focuses on day hikes in two of England’s best loved walking areas, the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District.

Any hiking trip in the mountains requires a certain amount of effort and proper fitness training will enhance your enjoyment. In the mountains, time and elevation gain or loss as opposed to distance, tend to be the determining factors when defining hiking grades or level of difficulty. We have done our best to grade our trips consistently, please contact us for further clarification. We are happy to offer names of past participants.
