Family Adventure Experience

Adventure built around you

This bespoke family adventure experience is run over a full day and is tailored to you and your family. We can generally fit in 2 outdoor activities in a day and sometimes 3 depending on the age range of the kids and what you want to get from the day. We are flexible on lunch timings and what we do i.e. picnic, cafe or meal deal from a shop and a takeaway coffee?
Examples of activities that work well together include: Abseiling and Caving, Climbing and Weaselling, Weaselling and Caving, or Weasel, Abseil & Climb can work for younger families.
However it is always easier to chat the options through so that you get the 'best fit' for you. Our prices are all on the website but for a family of 4 it costs £300 and for a family of 5 people costs £325

Please note that we can run this Family Adventure Experience most times throughout the year. So if this is for you, then all you need to do is get in touch with your preferred dates and we will try to match those with available staff.

Abseil & Caving Multi Activity Day

Courses

Abseil & Cave Multi Activity Day

Can't decide? Choose both!

If you can't decide whether to join us on the rock or under the ground then why not have the chance to try both in one day.

We will meet you at the start time and issue everyone with a harness and helmet before walking down the trail to the bridge. Once at the bridge we will get everybody harnessed up and start abseiling as quickly as possible. The aim is to initially build confidence and trust, and then get in as many abseils as we can in the time we have. We will finish at 1130am and back at the car park before 12pm ready for lunch. We will have lunch here (either bring a packed lunch or pop into the cafe). After lunch, follow us to the cave (approx 15 minute drive). We will issue you with all the kit you need to keep you safe underground. Once in the cave we will explore as a group and find some challenges along the way.

Abseil peak district from millersdale viaduct

Abseil Experience

Abseiling in the Peak District is a great standalone activity for people wanting a quick adrenaline fix. We run our 2hr abseil sessions as either a morning or afternoon activity and the price of £35pp is based on a min of 2 people wanting to abseil.  Groups of 3 or more attract a 10% discount. These abseil sessions are run near Tideswell from the Millersdale viaduct. Please get in touch directly if you want to book a private abseiling course with us.

If you are thinking of doing a charity abseil and would like a bit of practice first? Then we also use the viaduct as a stepping stone for some of the bigger charity abseil events that we run.

Alternatively, If you prefer, then we can abseil off many of the cliffs and crags which surround the Peak District. These add an extra element of adventure as you are surrounded by the natural beauty the peak district national park has to offer. The main difference is that its a little bit slower to get you back to the top of a cliff for another go! Just bear in mind that Abseiling off the viaduct at Millersdale has very easy access. It has steps from the landing zone so a quick means of getting back to the top for another go.

For all of our abseil sessions, we generally meet in the car park at 930am and return here by around 12pm which gives us about 2 hours abseiling on the bridge. There is good car parking and toilets on site with the cafe usually open from 9am on weekends.

You can also combine Abseiling with one of our other outdoor activities to make a full day out on your holiday or excursion. The full days tend to offer better value especially for people looking for more adventure in the outdoors. Follow this link to see some photos of the activities we deliver.

sport climbing courses

Rock Climbing Sport Climbing Course

Sport Climbing Course

Peak District sport climbing has seen a big boom in the last decade or so. Many sport climbing venues have been rebolted by the BMC so making it safer at certain crags. Others are getting more climbers on them so the routes are cleaner, again this makes it safer for climbers visiting Derbyshire.

Our sport climbing courses are run by climbing instructors that live and work in the area.  This means that they can choose the venue which is most suitable to your needs. This course is ideal for climbing partners or friends who want to make the transition into outdoor sport climbing. You can share the cost and both gain the experience and knowledge from our very well qualified climbing instructors. The price may vary depending on the group size so feel free to give us a call with any questions.

If you prefer then we offer Trad climbing courses which work well for the same transitions from indoors to outdoors. initially these are run as top rope courses before moving onto a rigging course or learning to lead climb.

All of our private climbing courses are bespoke so you can contact us to let us know what you want from the day. We will then tailor everything to you. Our Peak District sport climbing courses usually meet in Calver as we are then closer to more suitable venues.

If you want to see photos from some of the other activities we run then please follow this link.

Our Peak District Mtb Bike Skills course will look at your current riding style and seek to identify and correct any bad habits that may have developed. It uses the fundamental skills from the introduction course to create a more proactive and relaxed riding style to help you further develop beyond this course.

We will session sections of trails to develop key skills and use constructive clear feedback to help you make progress. This includes use of video footage for client feedback and reviews.

You should be mountain biking more confidently on the technical terrain such as that found in the Peak District or on more technical trail obstacles on Trail Centre Red routes.
