Lake District SAS Challenge Event

Sunday 8th December was one of those days were we get to test our new challenge events against the elite.  Whenever Jason comes up with a new Lake District challenge event we recruit the help of the well-seasoned NAV4 Adventure crew to come and try out the challenge event before we offer it to our clients.  We appreciate that this super fit group of adventure racers are not our usual clientele but it gives us a feel for how well the event will run for a more modestly…

Mountain adventure stag party

Here at Distant Horizons our normal Saturday usually involves travelling across the Lake District via outdoor activities such biking, walking, kayaking, canoeing and sometimes abseiling.  This is all great fun, however every now and then we get a group of guys or gals that just want to come and have a laugh, create some memories, not do anything too physical (due to hangover) and have a few drinks to round it all off.  Of course, we are talking about the pre-wedding shenanigans of stag and hen parties that are not unfamiliar in…
