Your National Park is a protected landscape providing spectacular views, iconic wildlife, fascinating archaeology and beautiful moorland villages. From walking, fell running and climbing to air sports, cycling or simply enjoying peace and quiet reflection surrounded by nature, the area offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation that are beneficial to health and well-being.

Interest in such activities has grown enormously in recent years and an increasing number of commercial organisations and charities now organise large scale events within the National Park.
