Individuals & Small Groups

Individuals & Small Groups

All our activities are suitable for small groups from four people upwards. These will be private bookings so we do not add any additional people to your booking. If there are only two or three of you and would still like to book a private group there may be a minimum charge for the activities to run. Alternatively we have 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 try  kayaking or stand up paddle boarding but don’t want to throw themselves in at the deep end.

“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.”

“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!”

“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.

Very happy with everything over the 2 days course and would recommend Alfresco Adventures to anyone.”
