Reivers 173 mile (278 km) coast to coast route, crossing from the Whitehaven on the west coast to Tynemouth on the east coast. It is an exceptional route passing through the unspoilt borderlands of Northumberland and Kielder, through the historic border regions where the reiver gangs and clans operated, raiding sleepy picturesque before disappearing back into the 'wild' hills. Thankfully now the raiders are gone leaving the sleepy villages and spectacular scenery for us to enjoy


Reivers route was first developed a a return route for those doing the C2C route but has become an very popular route in its own right. Our route starts like all of our tours, from west to east, to take advantage of the prevailing winds, but of course we can facilitate those wishing to go from east to west. As well as Tynemouth, Newcastle, and Kielder Forest the route also takes in the Lake District as well as Carlisle, on the way across the country.
