Overview & description
The famous Coast to Coast Packhorse has eased the way for thousands of walkers from all over the world for nearly 30 years. With a personal touch from a dedicated team, Coast to Coast walkers and cyclists are met with a warm, friendly and highly efficient service as they tread or pedal the 192 miles between St. Bees Head on the west coast and Robin Hood's Bay on the east. Packhorse enjoys an excellent working relationship with all the accommodations along the route and has a team with in-depth personal knowledge of the route who fully understand and appreciate the needs of our walking and cycling customers.
The minibuses travel the route seven days a week between the beginning of April and the end of September, moving both baggage and passengers over all stages of the route. The Packhorse can provide as much or as little support as required and having tailored a schedule to fit your needs, the team make all the arrangements for your Coast to Coast trip with a great mix of accommodation for you to enjoy. Or, if you want to organise your own accommodation, we can cover all the logistical assistance you may need.
The Coast to Coast Packhorse offers a unique combination of services:-
