Exploring, etc provides adventurous activities with a focus on connecting with nature. We offer:
- Guided open canoe trips.
- Guided hill walking and coastal walks.
- Outdoor rock climbing.
- Group workshops to boost wellbeing through nature connection.
All our activities can be paired with nature spotting, environmental art activities and bushcraft. Our base is in Whitley Bay, but we lead our sessions in many beautiful places across the North East.
We offer bespoke open canoeing trips for individuals and groups. We select the perfect spot for your skill level. Beautiful calm rivers and lakes for those on their first forays into canoeing or those seeking a more contemplative experience. For those with some initial experience we can offer a dose of exhilarating white-water. On all the river trips there is rich bird life and the chance to spot kingfishers, herons, sand martins, jumping salmon or, if you’re lucky, otters.
Exploring, etc offer bespoke guided walks in all areas of Northumberland, whether mountainous, like the Mighty Cheviot or the stunning coastal paths. A guided walk is a great way to see the hidden gems of the region, spot a great variety of wildlife and bring the local history and culture to life.
Exploring, etc outdoor rock climbing and abseiling sessions are perfect for both beginners and those who climb regularly. For instance, if you love indoor bouldering or climbing, our sessions might offer a glimpse of the fantastic climbing available in Northumberland in beautiful locations.
Exploring, etc uses evidence-based strategies to help you connect to nature. In turn, nature connection is important for wellbeing, stress alleviation and pro-environmental behavior. Our group nature workshops include:
- A presentation on how to use nature connection activities in your everyday life.
- Mindful photography and environmental art

- Wildlife spotting
We can tailor these workshops to your requirements and they can take place at a venue that suits your group. If in doubt, why not come to the beach!
