Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk
The classic walk in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales which takes in the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a circular route.

The walk is 24.5 miles (39.2km) long and takes in approximately 5,000 feet (1,600 metres) of climbing.

Traditionally this walk is completed within a target of 12 hours in order to join the 'Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club' which is run by the Pen-y-ghent Café.

Our Three Peaks Walk CD/DVD 2-disk set contains all the information required to successfully complete this wonderful walk along with local information and much more besides - click here for details.

If the full walk is too daunting, each 'peak' can be completed as an individual walk.

You can download the full walk, or any of the 3 sections from our Videowalks site - click here for details.
National Three Peaks Walk
Have you completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk and now want another challenge? Why not consider the National Three Peaks Walk.

The National Three Peaks Walk takes in the highest mountains in Great Britain and there is a traditional challenge to complete all three mountains within 24 hours! Of course you don't have to accept the 24 hour challenge, you can take as long as you like. Many people choose to do one mountain a day over a long weekend.

Not for the faint-hearted, this walk is usually started in Scotland with Ben Nevis, the highest of the three mountains at 1,344m. Once completed, walkers are transported to Scafell Pike in the Lake District for the second climb. At 978m, Scafell Pike may be the lowest summit of the three, however it's steep ascent makes it arguably the most challenging. With Scafell Pike under your belt it's off to Wales for the final mountain - Snowdon at 1,085m.
