We want you to share your photo and video clips with us 

Late summer and autumn bring changes to the season. Making it the perfect time to immerse your senses into the beautiful, rich and vibrant colours. Visit beautiful places and discover natural wonders, national treasures and hidden gems such as our glorious forests, glistening lakes and breath-taking landscapes.

It’s more important than ever that we get closer to nature and whilst out and about, why not capture the glory of the new season and share it with us? 

At YHA we love a beautiful photo or video clip, so we created the YHA Nature Challenge. We’re looking for photos and videos that capture the beauty and bounty surrounding our beloved hostel network.  

We can’t wait to see what you discover when you stay with us… 

How do I get involved?

1. It’s really easy. Simply get out your camera or camera phone and take photos or video snippets of the natural wonders, national treasures or hidden gems during your stay. We challenge you to capture photos of: 

  • Mountains, moors and fells
  • The vibrant colours of our pretty landscapes  
  • Sunrises and sunsets. Why not film a timelapse?
  • Wildlife such as squirrels and bird formations
  • Hidden gems including streams, waterfalls and beautiful things you see on your walks
  • The leaves changing colour
  • Our properties. Show us the gardens and grounds in all their glory

2. Share them with us on your Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tag us using the hashtags #YHANatureChallenge and #LiveMoreYHA. Or follow us and look out for your posts on our social media channels. We will only be able to see your photos and videos if your social media accounts are public. 

    3. We’ll be picking our favourites and resharing throughout the coming months across our social media including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, so keep an eye out as you may just see your photo pop up.
