Dartmoor

Description

Dartmoor National Park, extended area of bogs, moorland and high grounds. Perfect for those who long for loneliness, getting swept away by winds, getting stuck in the permanent wet grounds.

  • Positive Apart from being beautiful in itself, Dartmoor is the perfect place to train and to test gear. It will chuck any conceivable weather at you, present you with rocky slopes, water crossings and wide featureless areas that need good navigation skills. Oh, and great pubs.
  • Negative Difficult to get to, unless driving: which mans usually circular walks.
