The Yorkshire Dales offer splendid views most never see and moderate lanes. You will travel routes such as West Cam, a narrow lane that hugs the side of a valley with a 600 ft drop just a few feet from where you will be driving, it will demand your full attention. It’s not all like this though, most of the lanes are a mix of rock and gravel, with some requiring you to take a good line to prevent catching your underbody and differentials, and to protect your tyres. There’s nothing to worry about though because we will be guiding you every inch of the way where required.
At the end of the first day, we will travel over to the North Yorkshire Moors for an overnight stay. The North Yorkshire Moors is the largest area of heather moorland in England, and you will visit the highest moors and lowest valleys, where we will encounter river crossings; weather permitting, we will do the river crossings. In the winter months, the North Yorkshire Moors has an eerie mood and it’s possible you will drive through the clouds as we ascend to the famous Rudland Rigg via Monket Bank or Ingleby Bank and the views can be somewhat limited. In summer though, you can see for miles. From Danby Moor, you can often see over to Whitby and the east coast.
We usually stop each day at a local establishment for lunch, but it’s always good advice to carry snacks and drinks if the schedule is delayed.
