Visit the Dales


Current tourism projects

Our project list is always a growing one! Here are some of the things we will be doing over the coming months for tourism businesses in the Yorkshire Dales.

Wildlife Tourism

We are currently developing a Wildlife Tourism toolkit for businesses and a Wildlife Calendar to give more ideas on how best to use this natural resource to encourage more visitors.

The Tourism Year

It’s not just nature, we are also working on a seasonal area guide to what’s going on in your area. The Tourism Year will have information on festivals, wildlife events, suggestions for what else to check up on such as events by other organisations in your area or dates for local guided walks.

Dark Skies

Dark skies are one of the things which makes the Yorkshire Dales National Park so special, there is currently a real interest in astro-tourism and this is something you could tap into. The best time for viewing the stars is between September and April so it’s ideal for extending the season. We are currently preparing some information and running workshops to help you make the most of this natural spectacle.

The Three Peaks

The Three Peaks area is one of the most well known and most walked places within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. If you want to work with us as a friend of the Three Peaks there are opportunities such as featuring on the Three Peaks App, profit share on retailing Three Peaks souvenirs, opportunities for volunteering for practical work with the Three Peaks ranger as well as showing your support for the work to improve the rights of way in the area.
