All of our activities offer that extreme element, get the adrenaline going and definitely get you outside of your comfort zone. However, if you are looking for that extra special event or challenge then have a look at our special selection below, there is something for everyone.
Also, don’t forget all of our events can be bespoke to you and your group and tailored to meet your requirements.
Where at Wild About adventure we love to give something back whenever and wherever we can, so if you are planning an event let us help you by sharing any sponsor/JustGiving pages on our social media sites, every little helps!
Then why not join us in this spectacular abseil event and raise money for your chosen charity in a truly unforgettable challenge.
We have teamed up with Langley Castle in Northumberland to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to something that very few have done before, scale its 7ft walls to a height of almost 100 feet!
The castle is set in 10 acres of stunning countryside and offers some spectacular views across the Tyne Valley and afar. Built in 1350, during the reign of Edward III, the castle has retained its architectural integrity and is regarded as one of the few medieval fortified Castle Hotels in England. Over the past 600 years, the Castle has been owned, together with its estate, by Lords and Ladies whose names were frequently associated with the turbulent history of the Kingdom. The history of the castle is amazing a definitely worth looking into and now you can be part of that history.
Abseiling is great fun and a rewarding challenge. The hardest part is the first step over the edge but once at the bottom you will feel an inner glow of accomplishment and exhilaration. Your instructor will give you the confidence to take that first step and overcome the natural fear of heights.
Unlike many other sponsored events, abseiling can be undertaken by people of all abilities meaning anyone young or old, fit or un-fit can have a go and raise money for your charity.
We hold a number of planned open abseil events throughout the year that anyone can book on, please check out open abseil event dates below. Alternatively if you wanted to have your very own charity abseil event we would be delighted to help you with this.
It needs careful consideration and planning and you must be physically and mentally fit to undertake this challenge.
We will be walking the entire length of Hadrian’s Wall (84 miles, 135 kilometres’) in 3 days, that is over a marathon distance every day for 3 consecutive days. However, once you reach the end, what an achievement you will have completed!
The Hadrian’s Wall Path is an 84 mile (135 km) long National Trail stretching coast to coast across northern England, from Wallsend, Newcastle upon Tyne in the east to Bowness-on-Solway in Cumbria on the west coast and is Britain’s largest archaeological feature.
This unique fully guided challenge gives you an opportunity to see and experience the best parts of the Hadrian’s Wall. The National Trail follows the line of the Hadrian’s Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site, passing through some of the most beautiful parts of England – from rolling fields and rugged borderlands to the vibrant cities of Newcastle and Carlisle – with dozens of fascinating museums along the way.
You will be accompanied throughout the trip by a fully qualified guide who will inspire you with their local knowledge, wit and charm. Their primary aim is to get you from the start to the finish safely and to ensure that you enjoy every aspect of the trail and ultimately get you across the line for your chosen charity.
The route is relatively easy walking however the 23 mile (37 km) section between Birdoswald and Chollerford is the most difficult, with lots of short climbs and descents. We will be walking West-to-East, which is recommended for more favourable weather conditions.
The Trail is fragile and can become muddy in wet weather so the best time to walk Hadrian’s Wall Path is between May and October. The Trail and Hadrian’s Wall are very popular in summer months, particularly in July and August.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge includes:
Reaching its rocky summit and seeing the magical panorama of the beautiful Lakeland Fells unfold before you in all directions is an incredible feeling, whatever your level of expertise. Its rocky summit and the barren landscape around is wonderfully remote, and the feeling of being somewhere really special is unmistakable.
From a logistical point of view and especially for those groups based in or around Keswick, the best route involving the least amount of driving is via Seathwaite Farm.
This route is 6.5km longer than via Wasdale Head and Lingmell Col and is more taxing, but scenically far superior.
Our approach begins at Seathwaite Farm at the end of Borrowdale, proceeding via Sty Head Tarn then taking the Corridor Route, formerly known as the Guides Route.
This is a delightful walk along the western flank of the Scafell massif affording intimate views of the mountain, before joining the route from Wasdale near the summit.
The return leg is back the same way or alternatively heading between Broad Crag and Ill Crag towards Great End and descending by Grains Gill back to Seathwaite.
We have run a number of company team building days while the group ascends Scafell Pike, using its great location and views to forge new friendship’s and bonds.
