About the Event

Visit the hidden side of Dartmoor, to an Instagram famous creepy forest, deep valleys and incredible gorge views!

Dartmoor has a lot more to offer than Tors and wild ponies, although we will definitely see both.

Come with us on this fabulous trip for hikes in the fresh air where you will have time to take pictures of rivers, Tors, ponies, waterfalls, valleys, bridges and a castle.

The trip includes breakfast, a tent and full travel from London and back.

WILD CAMPING

Wild camping in England is not permitted, so we will have to be sneaky.

We will set up camp late, leave early and leave no trace.

We will do our best to find a shower, but if we can't find anywhere for a proper wash, we will have access to jolly cold rivers :-)

Dart Valley and Wistman's Wood circular walk
