Each day contains several adventurous activities such as rock climbing and raft building, which provide a great action packed fun filled day to remember. These days are excellent for groups of friends and families to take part in, team away days for businesses or form the basis of our birthdays, stag and hen do packages.

Rivington, Bolton – Travel time 30 minsThis has been one of our most popular Manchester Adventure Days over the years. Easy to get to, beautiful location, awesome activities to take part in! The session will begin, abseiling into our rock climbing venue, then taking part in a series of challenging rock climbs of varying difficulties. Once everyone has had a couple of climbs and abseils, the group will then descend down into the quarry basin, taking part in a number of bushcraft challenges, building shelters, lighting fires, preparing food as well as making a hot drink.
After lunch the group then makes it way to our Ghyll Scrambling Venue. The ghyll offers a number of opportunities for getting progressively wetter as it continues with jumps, splash areas and waterfalls all before you make your way into the steep side gorge section, where you are then presented with a 12 metre high waterfall to climb. This challenging ascent is a brilliant way to finish the day, before heading back to our pop up changing rooms.
