Staying at the comfy and very welcoming Craven Arms on the edge of Giggleswick, each day we will climb one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks – Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent.   These are classic walks, the hills rising to just over 700 metres (2,300 feet), the views are fantastic and the limestone scenery full of interesting features.   The walks allow us to also see the pretty Yorkshire villages of Ingleton, Clapham and Horton in Ribblesdale, with opportunities for refreshment at the end of each hike!   A reasonable level of fitness is needed as the walks are each approx 9 miles with 450-550m ascent, but the pace will allow for plenty of breathers and time to admire the views.   The final ½ day will allow for a gentle walk into Settle with time to explore this lovely Yorkshire town.   This really is a classic exhilarating walking holiday, definitely one to blow away the lockdown blues!

Although a Londoner, I migrated to Yorkshire in my mid 20s and haven’t looked back since! I’m now living in Hebden Bridge which is a great little town and is in the heart of the South Pennines with the Pennine Way and Calderdale Way running right by. I feel so lucky to have wild and beautiful countryside on my doorstep, with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, the Lakes and all the other wonderful places for walking in the north. I love travel too, rucksack on my back, and always try to walk wherever I visit as it’s such a great way to see a place close-up and meet new people. I’ve been lucky to have great trips away, the highlights being in Nepal and Peru, and recently the Tour Mont Blanc. And then I love maps and planning walks, and creating fun and interesting days out for myself and others.
A reasonable level of fitness is needed as the walks are each approx 9 - 10 miles with 450-550m ascent, but the pace will allow for plenty of breathers and time to admire the views. The final ½ day will allow for a gentle walk into Settle with time to explore this lovely Yorkshire town.
