A wide range of guided walks and outdoor activities will be hosted as part of the twelfth Walking East Yorkshire Festival in September against the backdrop of the East Riding’s wonderful landscape and rich heritage.
Two four-day treks through the Yorkshire Wolds will be the highlights of this year’s festival, held between Saturday, 10th and Friday, 23rd September. Across the chalk landscape and dry valleys of this region, both the Chalkland Way and Wold Rangers Way offer breathtaking scenery.
Some taster sessions are offered by the ramblers. These are for those who prefer a less strenuous walk, such as a walk through Huggate’s dales; a walk through Eastrington Ponds’ nature reserve; and a walk through Millington’s seven dales.
Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic growth, investment and tourism at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:
“This festival yet again promises a great selection of walks and activities that will offer residents a fantastic chance to enjoy our stunning countryside, coast and learn things about our local heritage.”
“Going on walks can be, of course, good for our health too, so it’s wonderful that all these walking activities are taking place, providing these healthy benefits for all ages.”
In addition to a variety of activities over 14 days for walkers, cyclists, horseback riders, nature lovers, and history enthusiasts, the festival also caters to families and casual walkers.
Walking East Yorkshire Festival Showcases Regions Natural Beauty
Not only does the festival highlight the rolling landscape, curvy roads, and stick trees that inspired David Hockney to paint a colourful tribute to the Yorkshire Wolds, but also the chalk cliffs and wildlife on our coastline.
Holderness is an excellent cycling destination, with its flat plains and big skies, since there are many quiet country roads, railway lines, and even a peninsula just off Spurn Point.
A wide range of events are held every year, including historical tours of charming market towns, long-distance treks, Nordic walking, canal boat rides, horseback riding, wildlife tours, stately home visits, vineyard and brewery tours, foraging events, lighthouse tours, and kayaking, bodyboarding, and wild swimming.
