Dark Sky Explorer

Sure there are many wonderful things to experience on earth, but there are also otherworldly intrigues to be spotted millions of miles from our home planet.  Dartmoor offers some of the darkest skies in the UK and the perfect opportunity to gaze upwards at what can be found beyond. With a thermos of hot chocolate at your side, this experience will teach you how to set up a telescope, guide you through some of the wonders of the night sky and share interesting astronomy knowledge. 


Beaver Sighting

Did you know that it was possible to spot beaves in the UK? This activity offers you the chance to encounter one of the UK's rarest mammals, the Eurasian Beaver. You will be guided and learn from an expert local ecologist able to answer all your questions and give the best possible chance of sighting one of these incredible and ambitious creatures.


Pizza and Pipistrelle Nights

Food and bats! Who knew that could be an exciting combination, this is an opportunity to get crafty sculpting your own stone baked pizza with family and friends.
