    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.

    Tickets: will be available early October and announced to newsletter subscribers and dart2ZERO volunteers before going on general sale via our website and Facebook Page.

    Our previous events sold out in 4 days so check back regularly and don't miss out.

    Cost: £25 per person. (adults and children over 12).

    No dogs event: We are sorry that Dartmoor in the Dark is a no dogs event. 

    All profits from the event will be used to fund the work of our search and rescue charity. Reg charity number 1106098.
