How Stean Gorge is proud to be hosting the ever-popular Canoeing, Star Gazing and Pizza Nights as part of the Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival.

Ever thought of star gazing in a canoe? Glide your canoe into the water and paddle your rafted canoe across Scar House Reservoir under the moon and stars. Scar House Reservoir is 1 of 3 places in the Nidderdale AONB that is designated as a Dark Sky Discovery Site. The Yorkshire Dales National Park has officially been granted the status of an ‘International Dark Sky Reserve’, making this area one of the best places in the world to view the skies above.

7pm – 8.30pm, only £39 per person (activity only) – all safety equipment is provided.

Home-made pizza? Choose a tasty pizza and dine in our panoramic glass-floored cafe overlooking the gorge, serving between 5pm – 7pm.

Prior booking is essential for Dark Sky Activities and pizza orders. Call 01423 755666 or book online at

Let’s canoe to the stars!
