This option is similar to our recommended 8 day option with an overnight stay in Malham, but also splits the longest (15 mile) remaining stage, between Chapel-le-Dale and Sedbergh, over two days. This itinerary is perfect for those whose pace is leisurely or who want to maximise their time in the beautiful landscapes and in the villages and market towns through which the Dales High Way passes.
