Although the route divides naturally into 6 sections, you should not feel that you have to fit your walk into 6 days. There are plenty of possible stop-overs so plan your walk to suit your own pace.
You can take anything from 5 to 9 days and still complete A Dales High Way in a single week - including 2 weekends.
(There is also a 3-day Challenge version - this is EXTREMELY TOUGH and should only be tackled by people who have walked the route before and are used to these kind of events.)
Below is a sample of possible itineraries. Use the Accommodation Guide to construct your own. The walk can also be done over a series of weekends using public transport.
