Read what our clients think about this route.



Pennine Journey. June 2019 by Nicky & Geoff from Cumbria

The perfect holiday with a wonderfully varied route, a good level of accommodation and a very comprehensive information pack.

"A hugely enjoyable experience. Completed the first 14 stages of Wainwright's Pennine Journey during the last two weeks of June and luckily only needed waterproofs for two very short spells of rain. There were some long days so we were very appreciative of the very good standard of accommodation and the luggage transfers were faultless. Would definitely recommend."


Wainwright's Pennine Journey West. September 2018 by Dudley from Branston

Fully comprehensive service.

"Nice walks, but I prefered the eastern side. Route information excellent, everything you needed and more."

Excellent stress free holiday, everything taken care of by WA

"Wandering Aengus were happy to incorporate an extra couple of days for us, to even out the daily mileage. This enabled us to take our time and really appreciate the stunning countryside."


Pennine Journey by Sue Gordon from Jamaica

Hard, but very enjoyable

"The attention to detailwas impeccable. The laminated accommodation information and maps/directions was exceptional. The standard of accommodation, particularly Westgate Hall and Shepherds Croft was excellent. I would definately recommend Wandering Aengus Treks."

Pennine Journey map

The 247 mile 'Pennine Journey' traces a circuit from Settle on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, first tracking north over the hills and dales of the eastern side of the Pennines. It then heads west, following Hadrian's Wall over the many undulations of the Great Whin Sill, before heading south again down the western side of England's spine, including in this section, ascents of Cross fell, Whernside and Ingleborough. Only slightly shorter than the Pennine Way and probably tougher, the Pennine Journey is a superb route that deserves to be recognised.
