Tree climbing tour on the Isle of Wight
Tree climbing with Paul and Abigail was an absolutely great experience. Paul's knowledge of all things 'tree' and his clear love of the trees and the environment was naturally conveyed to us all. (more)Amelia Shepherd
Suspended 50ft in the air, enjoying the beautiful panoramic views framed by branches and leaves and then plucking up the courage to peer beneath was the most memorable part... pretty scary at first but fantastically liberating after the initial surprise. (more)Lani Watson
The most memorable part was hanging upside down from half way up the tree. This took me out of my comfort zone and it was a real push for me to be brave, let go of the ropes and trust the harness. (more)Holly Foat
From 29 - 39 per tour (2 hours)
Sussex foraging, bushcraft and plant craft workshops
5 stars! I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. It was a really interesting group as well with some interesting stories. Make sure you talk to everybody you will probably come away very inspired. (more)Saul Greenland
One of the best weekend's I have ever had. (more)Sasha Chisholm
From 6 - 60 per course
New forest guided day tours
Memorable parts? My guided walk with Steve Adams from Fuzzackers. Tips? Local benefits? I came by train and used a bike for transport and used a local company for my guided walk in the forest. Overall rating? Excellent. (more)Lucy O'Connor
From 10 - 20 per half day - 1 day
