Activities in the Peak District
Whether you’re a hardened hiker or fair-weather walker, seriously good cyclist or laid-back biker, the Peak District offers plenty of scope to get active. Challenge yourself on a bracing moorland walk or soaring gritstone edge. Stretch your legs with a leisurely stroll along a leafy footpath or riverside walk. In fact, walking in the Peak District is one of the most popular activities people of all abilities can do. Alternatively, why not try cycling through the Peak District landscape; tackle a tough upland route on your mountain bike or let an electric bike take the strain and enjoy the scenery – it’s up to you.
Our impressive network of footpaths, traffic-free cycle trails and bridleways makes it a pleasure to stroll, pedal or take to horseback as you explore the area – as fast or as slow as you want to. Whatever sport or activity you choose, the sky’s the limit.
If you're thinking of completing your Active Peak adventure with some camping there is an excellent selection of sites available, from farm campsites and camping barns to five star facilities all in the great outdoors.
