Can't praise Alfresco enough. If you're after a fun, challenging and memorable day out, these guys won't let you down. All delivered in a professional and safe environment.

- Alex Kerr

Sam is a great friendly bloke, top guide and someone you are more than happy to spend many days with. He just guided us for 4 days on part of the UK Coast to Coast walk with ease, fun, care and knowledge. I can't speak to highly of Sam.

- Karen Sharp

Just completed a two day navigation course with Alfresco adventures. Enjoyed every minute and learnt so much and can't wait to put it all in to practice. Even learnt about different types of heather and plants on the hills and local history. Can't wait to come back and do a night time navigation course soon!

- Louise Barker

- Jack Stonebridge

For my hen do i really wanted to do something a little different. Something that didn't just involve L plates and booze so we decided to do the raft building experience and it was exactly what i wanted. We had so much fun. The staff were absolutely great. I would definitely recommend this company to anybody. Thanks again for giving me the best hen do ever!

Thanks for a great couple of afternoons out kayaking on Semer Water and climbing at Downholme Quarry in the Yorkshire Dales. Both guides were really friendly and made the activities fun for us all (2 adults and 2 teenagers). Also thanks for the effort you made to accommodate us with timings and locations that would fit in with our holiday plans.

- Hazel Marchant

- Keeley Barrick

- Georgie Brookes

Attended the 2 days outdoor first aid course in October 2013. The course was really well delivered and the instructors made would could have been a pretty dull two days fun and enjoyable but still focussed on the seriousness of the subject. Definitely recommended and I’ll be back in 3 years for my refresh.

- Sarah Towers

An excellent 2 days spent with Sam of Alfresco Adventures on the hills in North Yorkshire being taught navigation skills. Thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days. I have learnt so much and gained some new skills that I shall be putting into practice right away! Our instructor, Sam was easy to talk to, extremely knowledgeable and patient. Very happy with everything over the 2 days course and would recommend Alfresco Adventures to anyone.
