Go for a stroll, surf the waves, climb a cliff, catch a fish, go for a ride, or maybe a paddle, fancy a dip, hit a round, take to the skies - we've loads of ideas for getting active on your North York Moors holiday.

You’ll find everything from walking breaks to watersports, wildlife watching, favourite fishing spots, golf courses, cycle hire and cycling breaks, horse riding and, for rainy days, leisure centres and swimming pools. And for a sunny day, there's even a heated outdoor pool, not to mention the seaside and superb beaches too!

Need more inspiration? Our Great Outdoors Yorkshire Coast & North York Moors Guide (pdf 6MB) is full of ideas for an outdoor break, including five mapped walking and cycling routes, or take a look at our interactive rights of way map (updated 2014) to find where to Walk, Ride and Cycle in the North York Moors National Park.

If you are considering running an organised event in the National Park, we’d be pleased to discuss it with you and provide advice.
