Dark Skies Festival Activities – Let’s paddle to the stars…


How Stean Gorge is proud to be hosting the ever-popular Dark Skies Activities nights as part of the Yorkshire Dales and Moors Dark Skies Festival. We will be running these activities alongside our Pizza Nights on Saturdays.


Dark Skies Activity and Bad Weather Alternative


Ever thought of star gazing in a canoe? Glide into the water and paddle your rafted canoe across Scar House Reservoir under the moon and stars, also if you arrive early you can get FREE entrance to our Gorge and Caves Visitor Attraction.


Please note: In adverse weather conditions, participants will experience the Via Ferrata High Wire Course. The course is one of only three in the UK. This only happens when it is not safe to proceed with open-water canoeing.


Unique ‘Dark Skies’ Location


Scar House Reservoir is one of three places in the Nidderdale AONB that has a Dark Sky Discovery Site status. The Yorkshire Dales National Park has been officially designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, making this area one of the best places in the world to view the skies above.


When are Dark Skies activities available


Dark Skies Activity Evenings take place through November on Fridays and Saturdays (3th, 4th,10th,11th,17th,18th, 24th and 25th)


The Dark Skies Activity will take place from 7pm – 8.30pm. Pizza is available from 5pm-7pm (see below)


How much does it cost?


Only £42 per person (activity only). All safety equipment is provided. (10 years old +)


Order your homemade Pizza?


Pre-order a tasty pizza and dine in our panoramic glass-floored cafe overlooking the gorge. Service: 5pm – 7pm. Visitors can pay for these on arrival, as it’s not included in the Dark Skies Activities price. Please book pizzas separately from activities.
