Hanging out at How Stean Gorge blog

Within a beautiful setting that will take your breath away, start your gorge walking experience with a free-hanging abseil down into the gushing water of the ravine before you scramble over boulders, slide through waterspouts, sit under waterfalls and plunge into deep pools for the ultimate refreshing experience.

Canoeing at Scar House Reservoir

If the freedom of being out on the water appeals then treat yourself to an open water voyage on the large expanse at Scar House Reservoir in Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its quiet location makes it the ideal place to master the art of canoeing and kayaking. Have fun with family and friends whilst taking in the surrounding scenery.

You can really get away from the world during your trip with a caving experience in the Yorkshire Dales. Prepare to be amazed as you discover what lies beneath your feet - walk, crawl, abseil or climb and take on a true adventure underground.

Whether you want to take on one activity or five, How Stean Gorge can tailor your perfect day outdoors. You can even extend your stay by sleeping on the campsite under the stars or make yourself at home at one of the six newly-opened rustic lodge and chalets sleeping between 4-10 people. Complete with wood burning hot tubs. The glass floored café is also open daily and provides the perfect space to relax, take in the views and enjoy a coffee.
