Leisurely Pursuits

With stunning scenery and vast landscapes of the Dark Peak to the rolling hills and dales of the White Peak, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor activities that everyone can enjoy. Of course, there are loads of ways to enjoy the outdoors from hiring bikes and cycling, horse riding, a round of golf on one of our many beautiful golf courses or taking to the waters for a spot of wild swimming. However, if there is one thing we absolutely recommend you do whilst you visit the Peak District it's a good old ramble. Walking is, without doubt, the easiest way to explore the outdoors and with 555 miles of the Peak District to explore you will find thousands of routes to try from easy strolls with the kids to hardcore 20+ mile hikes.

Hot on the heels of hikers (pun intended) has to be cycling the Peak District, the Peak District welcomes cyclists of all ages and experiences from epic road routes perfect for touring professionals to the famous traffic-free cycle routes where you can hire a bicycle (or e-bike) and enjoy a day out with your family without setting wheels on a road.
