Private Activity Courses

Adventure built around you

You can book a private activity course or 1:1 session with one of our highly experienced staff. If you choose this option, then you have more flexibility in what you can do and when you want to do it. The day and your activities can be built around you and what you want to get from them. Also, our 1:2 option is great value and works well for surprise gifts. It can also work out better than joining one of our open courses as you only pay a few pounds more for a bespoke day with a guide. You can see some photos and videos on our social media accounts on Facebook or Instagram.

We cater for a lot of 1:1 sessions and the feedback is always good. We are happy to chat any options through with you and help give you the best outdoor activity day possible.
