Yorkshire hotel breaks for ramblers

Walking in a winter wonderland

Winter walks in the Yorkshire Dales

Walking in the stunning surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is a real treat at any time of year and winter walks offer their own particular charm. There’s nothing quite like the Dales after a snowfall or heavy frost and if you enjoy exploring the countryside on two feet, a winter walk in this part of Yorkshire is pretty hard to beat.

Each winter the Ramblers organise a Winter Walks Festival and the 2018 event will run from Friday 21 December to Sunday 6 January 2019. Walks are organised by local walking groups and with many stunning routes planned throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park, you’ll be spoilt for choice! If you’d rather plan your own walk, the Ramblers website offers a huge range of different routes and suggestions with options to suit all levels of experience and fitness.
