Visiting the coast of North Yorkshire is the perfect way to get away from the crowded city streets and to enjoy the weekend discovering the beautiful upland area full of history and stunning vistas. North York Moors National Park offers 26 miles of dramatic coastline and amazing wildlife, including many species of birds, dolphins and whales. The area is also known for fossil hunting and dinosaur footprints — the entire area is made of Middle Jurassic sandstone. The inland doesn’t lack in hidden gems either, featuring one of the largest and most magical moorlands in Europe and many villages perfect enough for a postcard! Spend some time on the fantastic coastal trails, enjoy the rugged landscape of the North York Moors, hike along the ridges overlooking the North Sea, and visit old fishing villages along the way that are waiting to be explored!

I’m not the fittest person and was very nervous about my first walk. Gareth and John and my fellow walkers could not have been more supportive and never stopped encouraging me. It was a great day and can’t wait to do it again next week.
My husband and I have just got back from Nighttime Navigation with John and it was a really enjoyable couple of hours. I liked learning to navigate, and learning at night time just added to the challenge.
We regularly stopped to look at and talk about the stars, which was really interesting.
I really felt as though I learned something useful, and navigation is something we might start to pick up.
After such a stressful couple of months, this was something different and fun to do, so thank you. Highly recommend!
Truly amazing 3 days with an awesome guide John & wonderful fellow walkers filled with humour, laughs, interest & knowledge.
Loved my time with you all.
A fortnight back from walking in the Lake District with Large Outdoors and feeling energised and inspired. A massive thanks to our fantastic guide John, for reigniting my love of the fells and to the group for their excellent company through sun/rain/storms/rain/etc. Looking forward to more walking, swimming and kayaking with Large Outdoors throughout 2021.
A big thanks to Ben Henderson for another great navigation training session. Having taken part in a group navigation weekend last year with Ben, LO arranged, on my request, a private navigation day and, again, it was super! Ben is really knowledgeable, friendly and patient! He helped me work on the areas I need to improve, his teaching is great, and I came away from the day feeling more confident and clear about next steps to become more proficient in the mountains.
Large Outdoors – Great social weekends with lots of choice of walks to suit all. All walks I have been on have been led by great MLs. Overall, very well organised. I’ve got more weekends booked for the future and would highly recommend.
