Canoeing – Glide along Scar House Reservoir surrounded by the moon and stars during the Yorkshire Dales & Nidderdale AONB Dark Skies Festival.

Ever thought of having a go at stargazing in Yorkshire? Did you know there are 88 different constellations of stars? Scar House is 1 of 3 places in the Nidderdale AONB which is part of the Dark Skies Project and is designated as a Dark Sky Discovery Site.

Start with Homemade Soup & Pasty, enjoy the stars on Scar House Reservoir and then return to the café for a hot drink – all for £34 per person!

Arrive early if you would like FREE entrance to our

Gorge & Caves Visitor Attraction

PLEASE NOTE: IF CANOEING IS NOT POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER, AN ALTERNATIVE ACTIVITY WILL BE PROVIDED. WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE REFUNDS FOR THESE SPECIAL EVENTS DUE TO ADDITIONAL COSTS.

 

If your chosen date is unable to go ahead because of adverse weather conditions (e.g its too windy) another activity will be provided

Come along as planned but do an alternative activity:
