Malham Cove Magical Full Moon Walk

On this evening, you’ll be doing the classic Dales circuit of Janet’s Foss waterfall, Gordale Scar and the epic Malham Cove at night.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, the top of Malham Cove was used as a Yorkshire filming location in the final film where Harry, Ron and Hermione pitched their tent when escaping Voldemort!

Although a familiar and popular place during the day, it will appear very different at night.

Walking when dark can be exciting and rewarding, leaving you feeling utterly buzzing and refreshed. 

But this isn’t any old night walk.

The location is perfect for a spot of stargazing.  If there are clear skies the walk will include a talk about the stars, as well as the landscape you’re walking through.

And you will be taught how to ‘fine tune’ your senses through a little mindfulness, so you’ll get even more out of the experience too.

Please note: the walk length is roughly five miles and mainly on footpaths. It follows recognised tracks and trails, however, there are steep as well as extremely uneven sections. A good level of fitness will be required.
