Explore the great outdoors and Yorkshire's unique countryside

The Yorkshire Dales

If escaping to the great outdoors and exploring the region’s unique countryside is part of your trip, then you simply must visit the Yorkshire Dales.

The Yorkshire Dales is an upland region of the Pennines, which spread from the market towns of Ilkley, Harrogate, Skipton and Settle in North Yorkshire, to the southern dales of Airedale, Malhamdale, Ribblesdale, Nidderdale and Wharfedale. The area boasts outstanding natural scenery, rich cultural heritage and two protected areas – the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For outdoor pursuit enthusiasts, this breath-taking region of Yorkshire is made for activities such as walking, cycling, rock climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, birdwatching and paragliding.
