In a team challenge event each team takes on a series of tasks or projects that test their collective capability and endurance, creating numerous opportunities to repeatedly stretch and evaluate the team’s performance whilst in competition with other teams or against pre-determined targets, or against the elements.

Team challenges can be indoors, outdoors or both, lasting from a couple of hours to several days, and can comprise physically demanding activities and adventurous journeys or more creative or cerebrally challenging events.


Team Challenges For All Abilities

Our challenges can take on many forms of activity

Adventure Weekends

Our adventure weekends are bespoke, tailored to your preferred activities and location, and can be arranged throughout the year, though there are some location parameters that we're not yet able to alter.

We run outdoor adventure weekends in the Lake District, Snowdonia, Peak District and Yorkshire Dales for groups of 5-60 people. Activities might include canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing, ghyll scrambling (aka gorge scrambling), raft building, ridge scrambling, orienteering, caving, archery (where land is available), guided hill walks and strolls through the valleys, blindfold journeys, picnics and al fresco barbeques, wide games, bivouacking, wild camping, bushcraft, wild swimming, night walks, etc.

Our adventure journeys typically last for one or two days, some with a wilderness camp, bivouac or a night in a hotel in between, though we also run longer events in more remote areas of the UK. Part of the journey could be at night, it could include a challenge on water, underground or over a mountain.

Adventure Journeys

The challenges included in an adventure journey will depend on the nature of the terrain along the route, and each journey has it's own special features, with the level of challenge determined by participants energy, capability and objectives.

We also run urban adventure journeys that take advantage of the facilities in towns and cities, linking them with any means available, be that a paddle along a canal, public transport or legwork.

Competitive Team Challenges

Whether an adventure race or Japanese puzzle, a competitive team challenge event engages participant teams in a bid to be the best, and what clearer indication is there than being at the front, the fastest, or first past the post.

Our competitive team challenges offer an energetic, memorable team experience depending on effective team work and healthy team spirit making these events a very positive experience for all prepared competitors.

Some of our competitive team challenge events are designed to invoke direct team-versus-team competition, others engage teams against the clock or current record; some involve many hours of training and immense physical effort whereas others rely on creative use of the team's talents, and a mix of both is required in others, with each event lasting from a couple of hours to several days.

Wilderness Journeys

Whether you seek the peace and beauty of remote and unspoiled locations, or feel the need to take on a challenge beyond civilisation, our wilderness journeys offer those and many more positive life-changing benefits.

Wilderness journeys engage participants in a self-supported exploration of the unknown, leading to new places, literally and metaphorically. There is beauty in any remote location, sometimes within you. You learn so much about who you are in remote places. Such journeys have the effect of putting life into context, refreshing and relaxing your ego, re-balancing your priorities and cleansing your soul

Our journeys are made by sea kayak, on foot or in open canoes and have a start point and an unofficial end point, though the journey is not etched in rock. Weather often plays a part in defining the route and some places are worth spending more time in than planned. We usually limit the number of participants to 6 per journey, though we will consider larger family, club or corporate groups.


An expedition is a journey made with a specific goal, whether that goal is the endpoint or high-point of the journey or another purpose depends on the participants objectives.

A primary theme throughout our expeditions is high-level participant involvement and contribution. From the very start through to the very end, participants are involved in the planning and decision making at every level. This might encompass some pre-expedition training, or the training and development might be an inclusive part of the expedition.

An expedition can last from a couple of days to many days, and might include just a couple of people or it could involve a large group. The options are endless, though we recommend that expeditions are taken through inspirational environments which raises the value of the experience, increasing the longevity and strength of the learning from that experience.
