The Dales Way long-distance footpath begins in Ilkley, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and runs for 81 miles (130km) to end in the Lake District, at Bowness-on-Windermere. It follows the beautiful River Wharf towards Ribblehead, then meanders along the river valleys of Dentdale, eventually dropping down into the Lake District National Park to finish near Lake Windermere.

It’s a relatively easy walk that takes about a week. Information about link routes from Harrogate, Bradford and Leeds is also given.


  • The largest scale walking maps available  – at just under 1:20,000 – our maps are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available elsewhere
  • Unique mapping features - in many walking guides the reader has to read a route description then try to relate it to the map. Our guides are easier to use because walking directions, tricky junctions, places to stay and eat, points of interest and walking times are all written onto the maps themselves in the places to which they apply.
  • Downloadable GPS waypoints also included.
  • Itineraries for all walkers – whether walking the route in its entirety over two weeks or sampling the highlights on day walks and short breaks
  • All-in-one-guide – reviews of places to stay (campsites, hostels, B&Bs, pubs and hotels), places to eat, attractions along the way
  • Comprehensive public transport information for weekend and day walks– all access points on the path
