Join Jo from JAG Outdoors for a Christmassy night time walk in the forest! We will cover up to 4 miles and hope for some magical clear skies and lots of stars to explore at various points along the route. We can keep an eye out for Santa, use star maps to identify the constellations, or enjoy a cloudier night with a completely different perspective. Tea, coffee, & hot chocolate will available at the end.

Well behaved dogs on leads welcome (not appropriate for young puppies due to walk length).

Please come dressed for the weather, while we are hoping for clear skies that will mean cold temperatures! And the Cumbrian weather can also offer many other things.  Boots or trail shoes are recommended. Santa hats etc very welcome!
