Things to do

Rock climbing

Climbing is a great way to see the stunning Yorkshire landscapes from a whole new perspective. The limestone cliffs of Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Kilnsey Crag in the Yorkshire Dales provide some of the best and hardest limestone sport climbing to be found anywhere in Europe.

Caving

The largest caving area in the UK is located in Yorkshire. With more than 2,000 caves and potholes, plus more than 400km of surveyed passages, you'd better get your torches ready. Yorkshire's distinctive geology is waiting to be explored by families, groups, or individuals of any skill level. White Scar, Ingleborough and Stump Cross caves are all accessible from the Yorkshire Dales.

High wires

Take to the trees and speed down zip-lines at multiple locations including Dalby Forest and Ripley Castle. They're part of an exciting course of rope bridges, Tarzan swings and crossings; all set up to 37 metres above the forest floor. For a really exciting half- or full-day adventure, try the Via Ferrata experience at How Stean Gorge.

Walking

With 3 world-famous National Parks, 3 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, wild moors, rolling hills, rugged coastline and stunning views around every turn, Yorkshire is made for walking. From short strolls to longer hikes, there’s something for everyone.

Segway

As you take to the various tracks and terrains, master the skills of a Segway as you use your weight to navigate the twists and turns of your chosen course. An activity like no other, your Segway experience will provide you with a fantastic and unforgettable ride in beautiful landscapes.

Kayaking

There are various locations to explore the diverse Yorkshire scenery from a completely different perspective. Join seals and sea birds along the Jurassic coastline near Scarborough or paddle your canoe and attempt to stay dry on Scar House Reservoir in Nidderdale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
