This winter, discover Wainwright's Howgill Fells from a totally different perspective and experience a torch-guided walk with BEE Adventures.
This spectacular nighttime walk starts from the Tourist Information Centre in the heart of Sedbergh, take in the tumbling cascades of Settlebeck Gill, where walkers will spend a little time learning about the geology of the area, which so fascinated local lad and father of modern Geology Adam Sedgwick.
You will be guided to the summit of Winder (473m), where totally uninterrupted 360-degree views unfold of the Howgill Fells, Lake District, and the Yorkshire Dales and not forgetting the twinkling mass of stars that make up the Milky Way overhead giving you one of the best dark skies views going. Even on a cloudy night the nighttime atmosphere of the mountain is tranquil. You never know if you're lucky enough you may even catch sight of the Northern Lights for that perfect dark skies experience. After taking in the panoramic views we will lead you down to the welcoming lights of Sedbergh nestled at the foot of Winder.
