Qualified and Experienced Outdoor Specialists

Outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hill walking or cooking on an open fire are exciting, fun and adventurous, however both you and your team will want to know that you will be safe.

Dependant on the activity, our consultants are accredited through organisations such as the Mountain Leader Training Board, British Mountaineering Club, Royal Yacht Association and the British Canoe Union.
