Three Peaks in Three Days - Guided - May 2018
The Three Peaks area covers about 160 square kilometres of upland in the Pennines, with internationally famous limestone scenery. Much of the area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, owing to the special nature and fragility of its upland ecosystem.
Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent, the Three Peaks, all around 700 metres high, are probably the most popular outdoor areas in the Yorkshire Dales National Park due to the wild landscape, the limestone features, and the hill walking potential. As many as 120,000 people climb Ingleborough each year.
This is a wonderful fully guided short break in the Yorkshire Dales 'bagging' the famous three peaks of Whernside, Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough. With unspoilt, breathtaking scenery awaiting you, we invite you to join us and soak up the peace and solitude of its valleys, crags, peaks, caves and moorlands that have captured the heart of both artists and writers alike.
You will be based in Ingleton for the duration of the trip with the rest of the group and an experienced Shepherds Walks guide who will be with you throughout the trip, guiding you through each day so that you can relax and enjoy your holiday. The guide’s fascinating and infectious in-depth knowledge of the area will bring the geology and formation of the unique and varied landscapes alive for a truly memorable short break.
At the end of each day you will be able to relax with like minded people in quality accommodation, enjoy locally prepared food and talk over the great day’s walking you have just had.

We have personally walked all the trips we offer - We know exactly what you are going to embark on and can advise you on any aspects of your holiday over and well above what many of our competitors can.
Press choose to walk with us – Shepherds Walks Holidays are asked to deliver a very high percentage of the trips for journalists in the region. When the Tourist Boards are approached by a journalist wanting to visit the area who do they ask to provide their holiday or take them out walking? Shepherds Walks.
We have had press trips on all our routes and the articles speak for themselves.
Protected Holiday - All our holidays are protected through the operation of a Trust Account.
We are close at hand if you need us – We are a local business and if you need us at any time during your holiday just ask. If you are on a self guided trip we often will catch up with you, even over a drink one evening, just to make sure everything is going well. It’s better to iron out any little problems during your holiday, rather than hearing about them when you are back at home.
We enjoy great relationships with your accommodation providers and they will help us to help you
As we are literally on the doorstep we know the best places to stay. Often we will have block booked the best accommodation the previous year. We want our customers to stay in the best possible accommodation. As we know the proprietors personally and we liaise with them regularly they will go that extra mile to help us to help you whilst out on your route.
That is why Shepherds Walks has won awards and has helped people relax and totally enjoy their visit to this wonderful part of the country. We are willing to go that extra mile!
