Happy In The Hills

clarec539, Northumberland, United Kingdom
My husband and I have just had a thoroughly enjoyable two days,attending a basic navigation map reading course with Adventure Northumberland. Michael was our instructor for the days, he was very professional, very knowledgable and easy to talk too as well as being a good listener (I can talk a lot and was asking lots of questions) The day was planned out well from start to finish with Michael briefing us about the day ahead and making sure we had the necessary equipment before we set off. After completing this course we now feel much more confident to plan our own routes and we have a much better understanding of map reading. We would highly recommend using Adventure Northumberland.

Great Kayaking Experience!

Spent afternoon kayaking at beautiful Sugar Sands beach, Northumberland. Adventure Northumberland organized a highly professional and enjoyable trip around the coves. Paul & Michael were skilled and knowledgeable instructors who ensured that we were safe and confident in the water. They provided fun & interesting historical, geographic and marine information, whilst paddling along the coast. We greatly enjoyed paddling along the stunning coastline whilst also jumping off cliffs and swimming in the North sea (thank goodness for the wetsuits provided!). A great family activity & highly recommended.

Great afternoon out for all the family

Richard P, Birmingham, United Kingdom
Had a lovely Friday evening last week with Paul, who gave us a well-balanced session of water activities that were suitable for all the family - interspersed with snippets of local history and geology. The photos of the afternoon on their Facebook page tell a good story. Very impressed, happy to recommend.

A perfect afternoon adventure

geedee5, Craster, United Kingdom
We are a retired but active couple who were given a voucher for an activity with this company. Were we up for an adventure? You bet! We really enjoyed our afternoon spent kayaking up and down the river at beautiful Warkworth. Lovely views of the castle and in the tree-lined quieter stretches there were birds such as dipper, grey wagtail and kingfisher to spot. Paul, our instructor was extremely helpful and we felt in very safe hands. If you are wondering if this is for you, we would say yes as long as you feel able to hold a paddle for a couple of hours. It is not hard work to paddle and in many sections the river carries you along. Wetsuits are provided as well as buoyancy aids. The kayaks seat 3 but can be operated by 2 easily. Families would love it as there is lots to see and it is easy to learn how to steer etc. All in all a fun activity for all ages.

Fantastic Stag Party event

DJBobHoskins, London, United Kingdom
Situated in a beautiful part of the UK, this was an activity on the 'to do' list for a Stag Party I recently attended. The instructors were very helpful and knew the coastline like the back of their hand. After the initial safety intro we were all lead across rocky terrain to the water's edge before all 10 of us jumped into the freezing North Sea - a hangover cure if ever there was one! Once our bodies had adjusted to the temperature we found ourselves clambering around the stoney shore, back and forth into the crystal clear waters. Despite the bracing climate the surroundings were breathtaking and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The climax of the 2hr trail culminated into a giant leap from a 40ft cliff into the sea below. Most of our party managed to brave the daredevil feat but the instructors didn't pressure anyone into something they couldn't/didn't want to do. I, for one, jumped from a slightly less macho height of 25ft but it was still an achievement for someone who has a problem with heights. We really got on well with the two instructors (Alvin and Lee) and they offered some insight into the local area which went down very well with those of us in search of the hair of the dog, although the coasteering obliterated any side effects from the night before! All in all, a very professional and friendly experience was provided and the Stag was in his element. I'd highly recommend this event for anyone who fancies a challenge as well as building on new friendships within a group.
