If you really want to immerse yourself in the landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, try a “Muddy Boots” guided Discovery Walk. They have designed each of their walks using in-depth local knowledge to ensure that you experience the very best of the Dales. The routes take you on the paths less trodden as you explore Muddy Boots’ favourite secret spots, uncover the stories and characteristics that define the Dales and, most importantly, have a fun day out!

 Each walk is exclusively planned for your party and is led by a qualified local guide.  They include a picnic of delicious local produce and/or a stop in a traditional Dales country pub.

 The routes include:

  •  HISTORY, MYSTERY, HILLS AND GILLS (BUCKDEN) – 7.5 miles up stunning Buckden Gill to the summit of Buckden Pike. Enjoy a picnic with fantastic views and relax over a drink in a village pub.
  • RECONNECTING WITH NATURE (GUNNERSIDE) – 7.5 miles exploring the fascinating history of Gunnerside Gill, visiting a 200-year-old working smithy and enjoying a drink in the village pub.
  • SUNSET OVER THE DALES (WEST BURTON) – 3 miles taking in a pretty village, beautiful waterfall, peaceful woodland and stunning views before watching the sunset from their favourite spot.
  • HILL TOPS AND TRAIN TRACKS (GARSDALE) – 13 mile linear walk along the remote western ridge of the Mallerstang valley, over Wild Boar Fell, with a trip on the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway.
  • FAMILY ADVENTURE WALK (KETTLEWELL) – 4.5 miles from Kettlewell, designed to encourage the kids to develop a love of nature and become independent explorers, as well as have a fun day out!
  • BESPOKE GUIDED WALKS – If you like the idea of a guided walk but would prefer something tailored to your interests or in a specific location (including from the door of the hotel!), they can design a route specifically for you.
