Coast to Coast Route in Northern England

Coast to Coast Walk

Odin’s Last Rune: The Coast to Coast Walk takes you through England’s most interesting national parks. We follow Alfred Wainwright’s classic hiking trail through the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and across the North Yorkshire Moors. “Early spring seemed the best time of the year to walk the route. It would still be slightly chilly with fewer fellow walkers, making accommodation easier to find. We figured that 18 days on the journey would give us sufficient time to soak up the beauty of the landscape and the history and character of this part of England. Ancient villages, market places, castles and rugged landscape are all part of the experience on this 309 km walking journey through the heart of Northern England”.
