About the trail

The Pennine Way was Britain’s first ever National Trail, and it remains the best-known and arguably the most challenging of the lot.

Through the wild landscapes of the Peaks, Pennines, Yorkshire Dales and the Cheviot Hills, this walking holiday straddles the spine of England as it stretches from Edale to Kirk Yetholm, taking in a wide variety of scenery from mountains to moorland. If you embark on the Pennine Way, expect to encounter inclement weather, phenomenal climbs and the binding comradery of walkers on a truly epic adventure.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.
