The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is a classic walk passing over the summits of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a 24-mile loop with 5000ft of ascent. The aim is to complete the walk in 12 hours, meaning you've got to keep up a good pace all day long. Let us take the stress of pace-setting and navigation out of your hands so that you can enjoy your day to the maximum.
Typically, we'll start from Horton-in-Ribblesdale and first ascend the rocky peak of Pen-y-Ghent. From there, a long stretch of moorland and tracks followed by a short section of road will bring us to the impressive Ribblehead viaduct to start the ascent of the second summit, Whernside. We'll enjoy the extensive views along Whernside's long ridgeline, before descending steeply down to the Old Hill Inn and then tackling the final ascent of the day to Ingleborough. It's then downhill all the way back to Horton for a well-deserved coffee in the café or pint in the pub!
It will be an early start from Horton (depending on the time of year) and so you might want to consider staying there for at least the evening before. Let us know if you'd like us to book accommodation for you.Make a booking or enquiry
