Walking holidays in Yorkshire

The Carter Company’s walking holidays in Yorkshire include adventures into the heart of both the Yorkshire moors and the dales. The Coast to coast tour, inspired by Alfred Wainwright is an epic walk that leads you from a hilly start in the Lake District through the glorious dales and then across the moors to the east coast.

Expect to discover breathtaking scenery, legendary literary inspirations, quintessentially English towns, unspoilt rural landscapes, awesome contemporary sculpture and wild, rugged nature. And at the end of each day, dine like royalty and sink into the softest of beds in one of our hand-picked luxury hotels.
