Get Started In Adventure Sports

Exciting, breathtaking, invigorating, eye-opening, enlightening. Words can't begin to explain the appeal of our action-packed, fun-filled multi-activity courses. Whether you stay for a weekend or a full five days you're sure to have the time of your life trying out a variety of adventure activity sports including rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, kayaking, dry slope skiing, orienteering and mountain walking. You'll have a chance to feel what it's like to plunge through foaming rapids in a canoe, abseil effortlessly down a cliff face, learn the graceful art of downhill skiing and work against the clock as you search for hidden markers using only a finely detailed map and compass. But don't worry, you'll always have one of our expert instructors keeping a careful eye on your progress and you'll never be more than a short stroll away from a hot shower and the welcome comfort of our scenic bar.
Join us on the adventure of a lifetime. Who knows, it may even be the start of a new pastime.
