5 Action-packed Activities in Yorkshire


Husky trekking
Fun-filled days out for energetic, adrenaline-seeking families

Halifax www.anotherworldadventure.co.uk 
Who doesn’t want to be careering around a purpose-built mountain board, or chasing their mates during a spot of archery tag? There are plenty of activities to guarantee a great day of fun for all: there is paintballing and a sling-shot range, allowing you conjure up your inner delinquent. If you want some more hands-on action, bring a large group to engage in a hilariously manic game of bumper balls, and enjoy sending each other flying across the site’s green grounds.

Harrogate www.howstean.co.uk
How Stean Gorge offers a great day out for all those with an abundance of energy and a need for a shot of adrenaline. The Gorge’s activities include caving, rock-climbing, and abseiling, all of which are situated in the glorious setting of Nidderdale, a certified Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A day at How Stean Gorge will have you exploring the great Via Ferrata on its high-wire system – a really exhilarating experience.

Scarborough www.peskyhusky.co.uk
This unique centre offers the chance to get up close and personal with over 30 resident huskies, and experience their immense power as they whisk you along one of the trekking courses. A prior visit to the kennels is included when you choose to experience the husky trail, and the friendly and supportive staff will provide
you with an abundance of information on the animals and their abilities. For those who don’t possess the need for speed, a more calm day out can be had by taking a few of the centre’s dogs for a relaxing walk through the tranquil North York Moors on a husky hike.

Pontefract www.racewaykarting.com 
Raceway Karting has an experienced team of professionals who will keep you safe whilst you whizz around their superb track. The indoor racing arena is plastered with plasma screens so that all your times are displayed, meaning that there is no speculation over who the true champ is. There are Le Mans-style endurance races and Grand Prix events meaning that there is plenty going on at the track.

Brighouse www.rokt.co.uk
As one of the most innovative and well-engineered climbing centres in the UK, the ROKT Climbing Gym is renowned for ensuring that it has something to challenge everyone. There are numerous bouldering chambers ready to be attacked by those who don’t want the hassle of ropes and harnesses, and also the devilishly disorientating Toxic Waste caving system to navigate. The Lead Climbing Wall is the tallest in the whole of Yorkshire, and has vertical and overhanging routes – a real challenge.
