Dales High Way. September 2019 by Ann and Alex Mcleod from Crieff

Why look anywhere else?

"There is no need to look anywhere else for a tour provider. Every aspect provided by WA, this is our third year in a row, has proven to be excellent. Speaking with fellow walkers we have met on route the service provided by WA is comparatively superior to others."


Dales High Way. May 2019 by Philip and Anne Pope from Gloucestershire

An excellent walk with great scenary the whole way and good standard of Accommodation.

"Well organised and everything was very well presented. There were, however, some issues with the luggage transfers and some of the details relating to packed lunches were out of date."

Reply from Wandering Aengus:Thank you for your review. We're pleased you had such a good trip and sorry that you were inconvenienced on one of the days by the 'Tour of Yorkshire' road closures.

No surprises - ‘It did what it said on the tin’.

"Thanks again for the as usual excellent service."


Dales High Way. September 2017 by Mark from Hinkley

A gem of a walk

"As your website rightly describes it “a gem of a walk” apart from a small distance around Addingham a great walk through varied and beautiful scenery. All accommodation was good and the baggage transfer worked perfectly. As I had never been there before the Howgill Fells were a revelation and a contrast to the more familiar dales."

Dales High Way map
The Dales High Way is a challenging high level walk, more strenuous than the Dales Way. During the 90 mile route you will accumulate almost 14,000 feet of ascent! Although the Dales High Way will be most attractive to experienced long distance walkers, there are low level alternatives to the highest sections and so the route can be considered by most walkers. The Dales High Way splits naturally into 6 stages. Experienced long distance walkers would probably be comfortable with completing the walk over 6 days but the first two stages are quite long at around 18 miles each. All the stages can be split further to give an easier challenge or simply more time to explore the dramatic landscapes through which the Dales High Way passes.
