We are an outdoor adventure company that is based in Norwich, Norfolk but operates throughout the UK.

Activities include High Ropes, Canoeing, Raft Building, Bushcraft, Crate Stack, Archery, Team dynamics, Trebuchet Building and more.

We work with a variety of groups both in ability and age and includes: Schools, Princes Trust, NCS, Youth Groups and Local Colleges. We deliver adventurous programmes for Schools, Groups and Colleges in North Wales, The Peak District, The Lake District and Scotland. We are experts at developing achievable wilderness trails by foot or in canoes for groups wishing to develop personally and as part of a team. This off site provision also includes the delivery of all levels of the Dofe expedition section both on foot or by canoe. Our delivery also includes programmes designed specifically for business and Corporate customers, focused on leadership, self awareness and team effectiveness.
What makes your company different from the competition?
We are a small and bespoke company who are highly adaptable to the aims and objective of our groups. We work with our customers to develop unique programmes that don;t necessarily follow the norm. We don;t make our customers fit our programmes but make our programmes fit our customers; in our eyes every group and customer is unique.
Our ethos focuses on helping, encouraging, supporting and guiding our guests.
Youth and adult personal and team development is at the heart of everything we deliver. We use outdoor activities and programmes to facilitate and focus each persons journey of discovery. We actively empower individuals to improve self confidence, personal relationships with peers, leadership and communication qualities. We encourage people with insular outlooks to openly embrace change. We challenge behaviour and work closely with individuals and teams to help them see from past to future. The outdoors is our tool to help and support individual and team development
This is what sets us apart from others, we go the extra mile and we are not afraid of a difficult journey.
