TRY SOMETHING NEW IN 2018
LOOKING TO TAKE UP A NEW HOBBY IN THE NEW YEAR? WELCOME TO YORKSHIRE LOOK AT WHAT’S HOT IN 2018
City Dweller Magazine has teamed up with the guys at Welcome to Yorkshire to look at some Yorkshire days out. Here are some of their suggestions if you want to try something new in 2018.
If you’re looking for a new hobby this New Year, perhaps an exciting new experience or a chance to start 2018 with a bang, there’s plenty to choose from in Yorkshire – and here’s some inspiration to whet your appetite!
It may be cold outside but a great way to warm up istogetmoving–anda fantastic place to enjoy activity outdoors is at How Stean Gorge in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. A spectacular limestone ravine carved out over thousands of years by waterflow, it’s steep-sided and almost 1 km (just over 1/2 a mile) in length and up to 20 metres (80ft) deep in places. There’s a huge range of activities on offer – scrambling through the gorge, exploring the caves by torchlight, abseiling and rock climbing to name a few.
Unleash your inner dare devil at Yorkshire Outdoors just outside the North Yorks Moors. Try your hand at 4×4 Off-Road Driving – whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or an expert, you’ll find it demanding, challenging and above all serious fun as you manoeuvre through deep mud and water, over steep climbs and breathtaking crests. The centre also offers Quad Trekking, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Archery, Segway rallies and plenty more.
For something completely unique try Pesky Husky: with 30 sled dogs, it provides a range of exciting experiences including Husky Trekking, a sport which gives you the opportunity to drive your own team of dogs on a two-wheeled scooter around a purpose built trekking course, with two thrilling down-hill sections. You can also take part in husky hiking – a walk with dogs through the countryside between Whitby and Scarborough.
If you fancy getting your feet wet, there are loads of activities at the Yorkshire coast. The varied coastline has some great surfing conditions and Scarborough is a great place to start – try Fluid Concept Surf Shop & Surf School or Scarborough Surf School, or head even further north to Saltburn Surf School. Get to know some of the fantastic wildlife who live off the Yorkshire Coast with a Whitby Whale Watching trip – you could see bottle nosed dolphins, Minke, humpback, sei and fin whales as well as thousands of seals.
And when you’ve tried something new on land and at sea, take to the skies and see Yorkshire from above with an awe-inspiring experience skydiving at Skydive GB in Bridlington.
