On 12th September The North Face brings a new way to experience the great outdoors with a one-night, all-night festival of exploration. The first Night Ray Outdoor Fest, presented by Jeep, will be held in Gorges du Verdon, France.
It is an opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts with insatiable curiosity to go on an overnight adventure with The North Face athletes. Guests get to experience the lesser-known side of the canyon, and witnessing its transformation from dusk till dawn in an active way.
The North Face Night Ray Outdoor Fest encourages people to experience the beautiful Gorges du Verdon through a different lens, by trying a variety of outdoor activities such as climbing, trail running, and hiking at night. Known as Europe’s Grand Canyon, the Gorges du Verdon is reputed as the most beautiful river canyon in Europe. It forms a 21km long border between the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and the Var, and is 1000m deep in places.
The North Face’s athletes will be present to lead the outdoor activity sessions, and share their epic tales of adventure around a custom-built interactive campfire. Aside from sporting activities, the festival will also feature movie screening under the stars, and celebrations with live music. A designated campground will be available for guests, and pitched tents are available upon request for those who purchase early bird tickets.
Jeep, the iconic 4×4 sports utility vehicle maker, is a sponsor of the festival and committed to bringing an exciting outdoor experience to the world with The North Face.
