Horton-in-Ribblesdale Car Park
Horton, Settle, North Yorkshire, BD24 0HG
Gaze in awe at the Milky Way, marvel at millions of stars, and soak up the unique atmosphere of an evening hike on one of our Dark Skies Night Hikes in the Yorkshire Dales, a Dark Sky Reserve.
Our Night Hikes take place over the winter so we can make the most of our nocturnal hiking experience!
We will head to the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where there are exceptionally dark skies and a magnificent nocturnal environment.
All of our Dark Skies Night Hikes are guided by Mark Reid, a very experienced Mountain Leader who knows the Yorkshire Dales exceptionally well, so you can relax and follow Mark whilst marvelling at the night sky above!
This event takes place as part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival 2023.
