England: Yorkshire Dales – Paradise for Walks in Nature – VIDEO

Published: 23.7.2019
Visit Yorkshire Dales National Park near the beautiful historic city of York in central England. There is a peaceful and beautiful green English countryside and dozens of opportunities for easy relaxing walks.

There are countless rounded hills and romantic valleys with stone villages, farms and, of course, ubiquitous sheep waiting in the park. The green pastures are separated by stone walls and hedges, and here and there you will find a smaller forest with trees covered with lichens.

n some parts of the park, the tranquil agricultural countryside is becoming quite a rough landscape. Instead of rounded hills, limestone massifs form majestic rocks and meadows alternate with moors.

With limestones, you will also find vast cave systems here, cave explorers have discovered and mapped around 2,500 caves to date. The longest one is 87 kilometers long. Of course, you can check out some of them, including the White Scar Cave, Ingleborough Cave and Stump Cross Caverns.

The entire national park is interwoven with a network of hiking trails, and although it is not visited by so many people as the neighboring Lake District, it is well prepared for visitors. In almost every village you will find a traditional inn with rooms or Bed & Breakfast. There are also tourists with their own tent or caravan.

Be sure to stop by at one of the local pubs, try local beers and talk to the locals. He is one of the friendliest ones I have met in England, and you will still encounter real gentlemen here. Just occasionally get ready for a more quite difficult accent.

There is also a 73-mile long railway through the park, where historic steam trains run regularly. Challenging the terrain thanks to many tunnels and viaducts and the train ride itself is a real experience. The most famous building on it is the monumental Ribblehead viaduct, which I recommend to stop even if you do not go by train.

Central England offers much more than just big cities like Manchester and Liverpool. If you go to these parts, take some time to explore the countryside. In addition to the Yorkshire Dales, the wild Lake District, the breathtaking Peak District and the North York Moors are worth your time. Wonderful treks and rugged scenery await you in the Snowdonia National Park, just a little more southwest.
