England : Coast to Coast
This adventure across the north of England starts near Newcastle and winds its way across the rolling hills, heading ever west to The Yorkshire Dales and Moors before climbing high into the splendour of the English Lakes. The tracks cross the river South Tyne and climb up and through infamous passes in the Lakes, before finishing within sight of the Irish Sea. All of our routes are carefully researched and we are members of GLASS and adhere to their Code of Conduct.

You will have the acclaimed Impala Support Teams on hand at any difficult spots along the way
We have three river crossings on this adventure. You will cross the River South Tyne just north of Alston, The River Eden at Appelby and also near Kirkby Stephen. There will be an Impala Support car at the crossings to guide you across and they will already have ‘tested the water’
England’s Highest Green Lane
One of the highlights of this adventure is travelling over the highest lane in England from Teesdale to Weardale. Northumberland is also high moor country full of rare breeding birds in the spring and summer. You will probably see Black Grouse, Curlew and Lapwings.

All of the lanes and byways that we use are carfully researched and driven before the adventure by our support teams. We use the GLASS website TW2 which has all of the rights of way in the UK documented with their legal status as well as any relevant notes on condition and other considerations.
