“Want to do something different on the weekend or holidays? These amazing experiences are something you must try!

I have done the abseiling, rock climbing and white water rafting adventures with this company and I highly recommend them. Suitable to most abled ages and beginners.

I recently did the white water rafting adventure for a birthday present with no rafting experience. Detailed instructions were given on the day, clear explanations and what appears to be always regulated updated equipment with everything safety-wise provided. 

I had such an enjoyable first time I will certainly be doing it again with this company as they really do put the experience of their customers first!

Recommend bringing closed shoes and your waterproof camera as you are not going to want to miss getting it all on footage!”

“My friend and I try to do something a little different every few months.

We stumbled across the white water rafting, and although a little unsure of our skill level as we had only kayaked a few times before this was perfect for us and we are looking forward to our next time on the water. Paul was a knowledgeable guide who was with us the whole way. All equipment was supplied, including helmets and life jackets. The afternoon was fun, relaxed and totally enjoyable – not only the rafting but the scenery and wildlife that we saw on our travels. Thank-you and we look forward to our next venture”
