Wondering what to do this Halloween?
Sure, pumpkin carving and eating your weight in sweets is one way to spend your Halloween, but nothing gets your heartbeat racing like gorge walking at night.
Join us for our special event this Halloween, October 31st.
Scramble an ancient limestone gorge, clamber cascading waterfalls and take on enthralling rapids with only the light from your head torch to guide you. It’s a spooktacular experience! Think you’re brave enough?
What is gorge walking?
Gorge walking with Lost Earth Adventures is a scramble upriver through an ancient gorge. There are steep climbs to conquer, cool, naturally-formed rocks to slide down, pools to swim in and a huge jump. If you’re in a family group or group with your friends, this is serious fun. The activity also lends itself to larger groups including schools trips.
Why do it in the dark?
Gorge walking can be a daunting prospect in itself. But our team at Lost Earth Adventures are always searching for ways to maximise fun. With Halloween just around the corner, it made total sense to try gorge walking at nighttime. We can start when it’s already dark or as it’s getting dark. Either way, there’s something quite magical about relying on the light from your head torch and your group’s head torches as you scramble this amazing gorge.
With limited sight, your other senses are enhanced. We’re not talking superhero stuff here, but the water suddenly feels closer, faster. The wildlife sounds like it encircles you. And the smell from the limestone, formed from millions of years. Does something lurk in the water? Is there a figure in the waterfall? Will you hold your nerve?
This is all of your senses working together to guide you through, and as it does, it makes for a truly unforgettable experience.
So, where is it and what’s included?
The action takes place in the heart of Yorkshire at Nidderdale near Pateley Bridge. You can get here from Harrogate, Leeds and York within an hour.
We provide all the equipment you’ll need for this one. That’s your safety helmet, head torch and wetsuit. All you’ll need to bring is an old pair of boots and a fair bit of courage, especially if you’re frightened of monsters!
