DARK SKIES ON THE NORTH YORK MOORS 2nd - 18th APRIL 2021

Experience Real Yorkshire


Open Group Guided Walks

Open group guided walks on the North York Moors were inspired by our corporate walking itinerary and the perfect solution for those wishing to join likeminded people to walk as a group, whether you are on your own, joined by family members or part of a small group of friends, Walk Yorkshire have put together a set programme of walks from coast to country within the National Park.

Simply go to our event calendar below, pick a date, click on it and reveal the walking event for that week. Depending on the current situation with COVID-19, we will restrict participation in line with government policy.



Under normal circumstances there will be no minimum number needed for a walk to take place so please feel free to enquire or book.

All of these walks are led by a Walk Yorkshire guide with outstanding knowledge of the area and most importantly the route of the day, and all our guides are outdoor first aid trained.

What you will need

In order for you to enjoy and take full advantage of the events on offer it is imperative that you look after yourself and turn up with the appropriate kit. We highly recommend suitable walking shoes/boots, proper outdoor clothing for the time of year and a reasonable level of walking fitness. Unfortunately young people under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

To see what walks are available throughout 2021 please refer to the walking calendar for the full walking itinerary and also check out our Walking Challenges, Boots, Beer and Banter weekends, Get Outdoors Walking Weekends, Dark Skies and any specialist training events.

With outstanding panoramic views across areas of ancient woodland, star clustered dark skies, splendid primeval abbeys, and an abundance of wildlife makes for a breath-taking experience of seclusion and peacefulness.

We decided to try a new kind of weekend break and discovered Walk Yorkshire. The "Gateway to the Moors" break was a perfect introduction for us and we'll be booking with Kev again very soon!
