About the event:

From the edge of the Jurassic North York Moors, the vistas are simply breathtaking. On a clear day you can watch the sun set behind the Yorkshire Dales in the distance. Below are expansive, flat plains. The skies here are simply huge. It's the most perfect place to watch day turn to night. Walk by the light of the moon. Or gaze in wonder at a sparkling, star-filled sky when it's very dark. On this special night we say goodbye to summer time as the clocks will go back later in the night. The walk will take us along the top of the edge of the Moors at first, but then we'll descend down a steep hill through a forest to a lake. Cradled by ancient woodlands, this tarn was formed over 20,000 years ago. It has a depth of stillness and light which is simply magical after sunset. Heading back to the top will be worth the effort. On clear nights you'll be rewarded with stunning views and shimmering lights from small settlements below. You'll see the moon really clearly from here when it's full too. By the way, we totally recommend walking by the light of the moon. It's magical! And when it's dark, you'll see planets, constellations, and shooting stars. You may even see the The Milky Way above you. We've watched the International Space Station from here too. Regardless of whether it's a full moon or a very dark night, walking at this time is good for you and an incredibly powerful way of reconnecting you to nature. The result? Your WOW-factor will be ramped up.

You'll also find out a bit of information about the night sky. We’ll teach you how to ‘fine tune’ your senses so you'll get even more out of the experience too. The result? You'll feel 'awe-struck', calmer, restored, all zingy inside. And you may even leave all your worries behind too. We're running this event in collaboration with Alison from Adventures for the Soul. And you can read more about Alison here.

Obviously we can't guarantee if we'll see stars or that we'll have good weather. If it's cloudy or raining it's still an incredible experience that'll leave you feeling revitalised. Nevertheless, your safety and enjoyment is of utmost importance to us. During or after extreme weather conditions, we may need to change the route, postpone or cancel the event. Check out the cancellation terms on the Adventures for the Soul website. We strongly recommend you take out travel insurance.
