Malham Tarn Tramper

Visitor using all-terrain ‘tramper’ wheelchairs at Malham Tarn

We love to boast about our all-terrain ‘tramper’ wheelchair, now available for visitors to Malham Tarn.

About the Tramper

The battery powered buggy supports less mobile visitors and allows them to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in places that would have previously been impossible to visit.
We have three routes available for you to try, each providing stunning views of Malham Tarn, so whether you want a bit of a challenge, or a stroll out with the rest of the family, we hope to have something to suit you.

Thank you to our supporters

We have bought the tramper largely thanks to the efforts of enthusiastic fundraiser, Debbie North. Debbie’s fundraising was also supported by a grant from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority’s Sustainable Development Fund, which is run by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust.

How to hire

We have one Tramper which is available to hire Mondays - Fridays between 10am - 2pm, subject to availability, at a charge of £5 per day; you will need to book it in advance by calling us on 01729 830416 or by sending an email.

Please note the following:

•You will need to be accompanied, so you will need to bring a companion with you.

•All users of the tramper must be aged 14+; the weight limit for the tramper is 21stone

•At the start of your visit to us, you will need to complete a short induction training to ensure that you are able to use the tramper safely. We will assess your capability to drive this vehicle in this terrain; if we do not feel that you are capable of driving the recommended route safely, you will unfortunately not be able to hire the tramper out

•Please remember to bring glasses with you if you normally need to wear these for driving. There will be an eyesight test as part of your induction - you will need to be able to read a number plate at an approximate distance of 12 metres (40 feet)
