Description

The Pennine Way is England's oldest hiking trail and reserved for demanding hikers.

Through the three national parks Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland, the more than 400 km long trail meanders from south to north through the middle of England to the border with Scotland.

Through flower meadows and forests, past rocks and waterfalls and above all through moor landscapes and over hills and mountains we are on our way in the wonderfully secluded nature of the island.

We pass some picturesque villages and two or three larger towns, but most of the time we are alone with ourselves and can fully immerse ourselves in our experiences and quiet nature.

At Hadrian's Wall we meet more people again, because our route runs about 13 km together with the wall walls and the Hadrian's Wall Path, before we turn off for the last part of the tour.

Arrived in Kirk Yetholm we look back on our days full of adventures, which we will certainly not forget so fast. equipment Trekking backpack (approx.
