Here you will find an array of outdoor adventure experiences on selected dates which we are offering as ‘Shared Experiences’ for you to book onto as an individual or as a small group across the North Yorkshire and the Lake District. We operate our shared experiences with small numbers of customers to staff ratios so you still get the personal experience whilst being part of a mixed group.

All our shared experience activities and challenges are aimed at people who are complete beginners wanting a ‘have a go experience’, looking for a fun few hours with like-minded people doing something a little different. Or to those who would like to  kayaking or stand up paddle boarding but don’t want to throw themselves in at the deep end.

Over the years we have had an increasing number of phone calls and emails with people asking ‘I’d love to try rock climbing, gorge walking etc but I’ve got nobody to go with” or they don’t meet our minimum requirement of four people for private guided experiences. So we took the decision to start offering shared experiences after the covid-19 lockdown restrictions eased in July 2020. We felt like we had a part to play in helping people get the much needed sense of freedom and adventure we were all craving, after being locked down for three months.

We were able to offer fun and exciting outdoor experiences that were/ are covid secure. Even better, we were able to to get like-minded people together that could share an experience in the great outdoors which felt like a distant memory from the previous years. As the coronavirus is still at the forefront of everyones mind all the activities we are currently offering are managed in a covid secure way and are suitable for individuals, apart from canoeing which need to be booked in increments of two.

We look forward to hopefully seeing you on an alfresco adventure and releasing your inner wild! Need a little more convincing? Visit our ‘why book with us page‘ or visit our Trip Advisor page to see what our previous customers have to say about their experience with us.

You can find the dates for the experiences on the activity tabs below, the spaces are limited and sold on a first come first serve basis, where possible we will offer a morning (1000 till 1300) and afternoon session (1400 till 1700). Once booked you will automatically receive an email with all the information you should need prior to your arrival date, however if you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

We only offer a limited range of activities for our ‘Shared Experiences’ the full range of what we offer can be found in each activity tab on our website.

If the date we are offering on our ‘Shared Experiences’ doesn’t suit you, we offer private bookings for every activity and experience we offer! With private bookings we don’t add additional people to your booking and every activity/ experience is tailored specifically to your needs and requirements.
