4-day Walking Holiday The Herriot Way

52 mile circular walk in the Yorkshire Dales
Taking in the very best of Swaledale and Wensleydale

With Mark Reid FRGS – author of The Inn Way guidebooks & Mountain Leader

Join us on the Herriot Way, a fantastic 4-day hike through the beautiful valleys of Swaledale and Wensleydale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. You will be guided by Mark Reid, a highly experienced Mountain Leader and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS), who will share his extensive knowledge of the Yorkshire Dales with you, with plenty of little detours and extra experiences along the way.

This walk will take place in early summer, which is the very best time to experience the special qualities of this National Park, including England’s highest waterfall at Hardraw Scar, far-reaching views from the summit of Great Shunner Fell (716m), the beautiful traditional haymeadows of Upper Swaledale, delightful villages and cosy country pubs, the majestic Bolton Castle and the picture-postcard Aysgarth Falls… plus much more.

  • Walk through Swaledale and Wensleydale in the company of Mark Reid, an experienced Mountain Leader.
  • Explore the geology, history & heritage of the Yorkshire Dales.
  • Relax at a country pub each evening.
  • Share the experience with like-minded walkers.
  • Forget about map reading, and enjoy the journey!
