Completing an adventure challenge with your friends is not only hugely rewarding, but will give you something to reminisce about for years to come. If you’re looking for a substantial physical challenge with a great sense of achievement, one of our adventure challenges will give you everything you’re looking for.

From our 3 Peaks Challenge to bespoke multi-activity challenge events, we design and deliver a range of inspiring and challenging outdoor adventure events in the Lake District and throughout the UK, so you can easily find a date and challenge perfect for your group.
