Whether we are providing your expedition, experience or kit – we apply our four principals of High Quality, Your Experience, Great Price and Independence to everything we do to ensure you have the best adventure possible!
These are primarily overseas expeditions to some of the world’s best kept secrets. They are designed with youth organisations at their core, using our experiences through Scouting and personal travels to provide groups with the right mix between high quality and excellent value for money, but ensuring that they are as safe as we can possibly make them. We want to transfer our knowledge and passion for travelling the world, and to pass this onto you and your group.
These are one or two day adventures, usually based in the UK. They are designed to provide a taster of a particularly activity and a great way for a group of people to get to know each other better! Whether you are a group of family, friends or colleagues, we believe that a group taking part in a shared adventure will form a much stronger bond than more traditional ‘team building’ activities. These are also ideal for staff reward and a memorable day to mark a special occasion.
Originally created to provide our clients with a simple way to get personal equipment organised for their adventure with us, we approached our favourite tried and tested brands to stock their products and now we have expanded our range to suit far more activities. We know how hard it is shopping for outdoor kit online, so we have made sure our product pages include as much information, as many high quality images and videos as we can and we have a no-fuss 30 day returns policy all to make the experience simpler for you! Also, our staff regularly use these products and brands, so please get in touch if you have any questions when shopping – there is bound to be someone here who can answer your query!
We are a bit like a family (well, some of us are actually family)! We have a lot of experience working in event management and outdoor activities in a variety of situations from being active Scout Leaders to running live music events, and working to support conservation in Africa. We have worked to combine our knowledge, experience and love for the great outdoors to develop the business. We also work with some of the best technical advisors, freelance instructors, guides and activity providers around the world!
Based in the heart of Oxfordshire, we are centrally placed in the country to easily get to the mountainous areas further north, the moorlands of the south, in between Bristol, Birmingham, Southampton and London’s airports and within easy reach the ferry services on the south coast.Our location is ideal for us travelling to meet with clients and for when we run events.
I hope that you find this brief overview of who we are, what we do and, more importantly, why we do it useful. Please get in touch if you have any questions or if you are interested in finding our more about any of our services!
Thank you very much for taking the time to have a look around!
