Explore the range of outdoor activities which are planted firmly on the ground. Intimate forest trails dappled in sunlight, the starkness of open moorland, mottled with grey; the richness of colours in a wooded valley on a cool autumn day and green rolling hillsides, saturated in vivid light.
Experience the thrill of catching your first wave as the surf rolls in across a sandy shore. The excitement of exploring by kayak or traversing the coast by swimming, climbing and jumping from the rocks. Sea, river or lake, water provides a fantastic opportunity to discover the adventurer within.
ROCK | AIR
Dramatic cliffs rising from the sea, the expanse of Dartmoor and its granite tors or the security of an indoor climbing wall, protected from the elements. Be gripped by the adrenaline rush of your first abseil, the thrill of a zip-wire, scaling a rockface or the satisfaction of completing your first hurdle, indoors.
