No obstacle is insurmountable
Being based in the picturesque Peak District and the Brecon Beacons, we are well aware of the fact that we are blessed and, as far as we are concerned, these splendid locations loan themselves to being the perfect bases for some of the most challenging and fun past times around. How about a spot of mountain biking along the numerous Brecon Beacon trails? Or perhaps abseiling is more your idea of the ultimate challenge? Under the stewardship of experienced and professional leaders, both these activities and more can indeed be enjoyed by each and every member of the public. Outdoor adventure activities in Wales have proved themselves to be invaluable for so many different people and they are particularly good at helping individuals to “come out of themselves” and flourish. Being at one with the environment often changes people’s perspective of life and it is amazing how a day’s mountaineering can be so invigorating and rewarding. Of course, anyone can visit the stunning National Parks for themselves, but when you have our vast experience and quality equipment at your side, the whole experience will undoubtedly be far more rewarding. Rock climbing and raft building often stretch the abilities, but with our guidance everything is in fact achievable.
Adventure packages in Wales
With twenty years experience of teaching within a classroom environment and educational adventure facilities, it is fair to assume that we know pretty much all there is to know about providing the ultimate adventure packages for all age groups. Colleges and educational groups find us to be a rich resource for all manner of challenges. For those students who are studying BTEC leisure and tourism, our National Park experiences are particularly invaluable. School youth outdoor activities in Wales are becoming an increasingly important part of student development, as not only do they highlight the issues of the environment for youngsters, but our adventure packages also instil a sense of teambuilding and responsibility into the individual. Also, organisers will find fun and rewarding past times such as rock scrambling, mountain climbing, abseiling, orienteering and problem solving, each and every one designed to bring out the best in students of all ages. Regardless of whether groups visit us for a single day or opt for a multi day residential packages, the rewards are indeed immense and it is a fair bet that a return visit to the Peak District or the Brecon Beacons will be on the cards at some point in the future.
Finding skills you did not know existed
Everyone has practical skills inside of them; it is just that over time our survival skills have diminished somewhat. Our action-packed packages, however, aim to bring these much needed survival skills back! The corporate packages we run focus on techniques, which involve working as a team and developing initiative. Countless companies and employees have already benefitted from what we have to offer. Take the likes of our raft building challenges. At first glance, it might not seem that such skills will be of benefit in the corporate environment, but in actual fact, the skills learnt can be employed to great effect in the business world. Team building activities in Wales are not designed solely for their professional and educational benefits though. It is worth remembering that fun is an integral part of all of the adrenalin-fuelled pursuits that we offer. And perhaps this is the reason that so many stag and hen parties come to us, especially those who are looking for adventures that will long remain in the memory. Navigating your way through the Brecon Beacons as a team building centre Wales is certainly something participants will never forget. And with the help of our thought provoking challenges, friendships formed will be cemented even further.
