Powering the Adventure Revolution

Yorkshire 3 Peaks PLUS+
Friday 19th - Monday 22nd April 2019

Hike the famous Yorkshire 3 Peaks over two days, with a long weekend in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Along your way, you’ll visit waterfalls, explore the spectacular Malham Cove, and much more. Hosted by explorer & EC’s founder Belinda Kirk.

OVERVIEW

Join us for spectacular walks on this weekend exploring the best scenery Yorkshire has to offer. At its heart are the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Your cosy lodge accommodation is in prime position to get access to the magnificent Yorkshire 3 peaks (Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent). Nearby are the stunning waterfalls of Ingleton, and a short drive away are the famous Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. This weekend you’ll have the choice of two full days guided hiking, or one day hiking and half a day canyoning in a local gorge…

EC adventures are informal, friendly and great fun! They're made up of singles, couples and small sets of friends with ages typically ranging from mid 20s to mid 40s but anyone over 18 years old and young at heart is welcome. Whether it's your first time exploring the outdoors or you're an adventure professional, EC adventures are a great way to meet like-minded people in a safe, welcoming and fun environment.

ITINERARY

Friday: On your first night you’ll arrive at your accommodation in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park from 7pm on Friday evening. Your EC host Belinda will welcome you. You’ll spend the evening getting to know each other and preparing for your weekend of adventure.

Saturday: After a hot breakfast you’ll hike out from the door to spend the day exploring with your guide. Although routes will be finalised nearer the time and depend on weather and group preferences, you’ll likely head up and over the mountains of Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent, stopping for lunch as you pass through the lovely village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale. When you get back to the bunkhouse, you’ll get a tasty home-cooked dinner and can spend the evening relaxing in the lounge or head down to the pub for a nightcap

Sunday: After breakfast, depending on your appetite for an adrenaline rush you’ll get the choice of either going on a full day guided walk in the Yorkshire Dales National Park or spend a few hours getting wet and wild canyoning down a local river! Walking routes will be weather and group dependent but you’ll be taken to spots with the best views and the most spectacular features. Sunday will finish with hot showers and enjoying another home-cooked meal as a group.

Monday: You’ll enjoy a cooked breakfast together at the bunkhouse before having the rest of the day to explore the National Park or head on home! If you’re hanging around your host will give you plenty of advice on what there is to do nearby.
