    Dartmoor in the Dark

    Notification of future Dartmoor in the Dark events will be posted here. Details of our last Dartmoor in the Dark event held in November 2018 are below.

    A walk in the dark to the magical Wistmans Wood.


    Start / Finish: Two Bridges. 

    Maximum walking group size: Walkers will be split in to small groups, maximum 16 persons + 2 team guides

    Would you like to enjoy the unique beauty of walking on Dartmoor at night? Well now you can as after the success of our first guided night walks, we are running our third with a new route and stories!




    The walk will be at an easy pace and aimed at those who may not have the confidence to undertake a similar walk by themselves.


    The walk will be up to 5 km and approximately 3 hours in length. Your walk will be guided by experienced mountain rescue volunteers who will take you to points of interest and tell you more about the moor's unique legends and archaeology.

    After the walk, a light supper is arranged in a local pub where you can chat to team members and your fellow walkers in the warm and dry.
