North York Moors Activities

 Activities & Things to do in the North Yorkshire Moors!

There are so many things to do in the North York Moors you won’t know where to start!

Cycling: There is a great cycling network which includes the Moor to Sea Cycle route linking the coastal resorts of Whitby, Scarborugh & Pickering (just to the South of the Moors). You can cycle at your own pace along the scenic 80 mile route stopping off at many of the beautiful towns & villages along the way.

Horse Riding: If horse riding is more your scene then there is plenty of that too, with the North York Moors offering some of the best horse riding terrain in the country. With over 500 miles of bridleways, cross-country tracks and several riding schools and trekking centres every level of horse riding is catered for.

Walking: Not forgetting those who just prefer to keep their feet on the ground the 1,400 miles of country paths and tracks make the North York Moors National Park ideal walking country. If you enjoy long distance walking you will be spoilt for choice. The Cleveland Way National Trail, Esk Valley Walk, the Ebor Way, The Inn Way and the Tabular Hills Walk are just some of our more popular trails.

Fishing: There are some great fishing spots in and around the Moors including the River Derwent, (known to be one of the most pristine river systems in the north), and the River Esk, the principal salmon and sea trout fishery in Yorkshire. Don’t forget the North York Moors also has a coastline..which mean great sea fishing too!

Golf: If you enjoy a relaxing round of Golf whilst on holiday then there are dozens of opportunities to do some serious golfing in the area with 18 hole and 9 hole courses available.

Extreme: For the more serious thrill seekers amongst us there are many opportunities to do something a bit more exciting, whether it be rock climbing, hang gliding, abseiling, mountain biking or off roading!
