The Dales are a collection of over twenty river valleys and hills, sitting astride the Pennines in the North of England. Each valley offers a different character and atmosphere, encompassing the counties of both Yorkshire and Cumbria and providing visitors with a wealth of stunning vistas.
Most of the area falls within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These havens for wildlife are the perfect place for either a gentle stroll or an intrepid hike. Enjoy the peace and solitude, a paradise for birdwatchers, photographers and fishermen.
For remote rugged scenery, head north to Wensleydale and the Aysgarth Falls. For those seeking adventure, take the three peaks challenge to climb Penyghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m). Enjoy horse riding, rock climbing, caving, potholing, mountain biking and cycling.
