Christmas in Upper Wharfedale

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the festive period, burn off the mince pies and get some fresh air on a healthy walk with your family or friends. A cold crisp day with far reaching views makes walking at this time of year very rewarding and we have lots of downloadable walking routes to choose from.

Upper Wharfedale Ranger Peter favours this scenic stroll in Langstrothdale and says, "This walk has lots of variety and something to see for everyone. There's so much history on the walk, from the ancient packhorse bridge to limestone pavement and glaciated valleys. It’s a great walk to do in winter when the trees are bare as the views are so different and I like to stop and appreciate the quiet.”

If you prefer your outdoor adventures a bit faster our walks make great runs and we also have plenty of downloadable cycle routes to enjoy - find out more.
