Dark Sky meander & Stargazing - Dalby Forest

  • Location Dalby Forest
  • Price from £59.00


We're very excited about these experiences. Run in partnership with High Dalby House - a fabulous boutique retreat - you're in for a real treat. 

And the location couldn't be more perfect. Set in the middle of Dalby Forest, it's been confirmed it's the darkest place in North York Moors. High Dalby House even has its own observatory! 

But first, there'll be warming drinks and delicious hot food all prepared by our wonderful hosts, Ian and Linda, from High Dalby House. 

Afterwards, we'll take you on a short, sensory and mindful night-time meander around the woods. Why? Because it's fun! Walking at night is such an incredible thing to do because it makes you feel amazing. It enhances your outdoor experience because you'll see and hear so much more. And you'll feel more alive, refreshed and connected to this wonderful planet too. 

This will be followed by our wonderful astronomer, Fred or Nick, who will point out a few things in the night sky. You'll be able to look at celestial objects through telescopes too. But if it's a cloudy evening he's got a few things lined up indoors, so you'll still learn lots and be amazed. 

At the end of this experience, you'll feel-good factor will be ramped up too! 

Walk information 
The event is open to all, but please note, this is NOT an easy access walk, although they are easier than Adventures for the Soul's usual dark sky events. The walk length is around 1/2 mile on well defined paths, some gradients, steps and rough ground. We'll also be walking in the dark as well (with a torch!).
