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 27 - 37 per tour (2 hours)
Sussex foraging, bushcraft and plant craft workshops
Memorable parts? This was one of the best weekends I've ever had. All of the staff here are very kind. There is lots to do. We did the Go Wild workshop. It's amazing. Go Wild teaches you how to light a fire and also how to be safe around them. In the afternoon workshop we learnt how to build a shelter. The man who supervised us was called Robert, he was really nice and helpful. Because there is so much to do here for adults and/or children you will never be bored. I hope you come and have...

From 6 - 110 free admission
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
