What can we do on an Adventure Weekend?

Adventure weekends are a great way to get away from the daily routine and experience some really adventurous and exciting activities – forget the routine and get an injection of excitement and fun!

These weekends are for groups of 8, so get your friends together and pick any date you like!

How much are Adventure Weekends?

Adventure weekends are £96 per person. You need 8 people in your group to organise a weekend.

This cost is for the instruction and activities only – you need to get to the Peak District and around to activities. We’ll also arrange your accommodation for you, from camping at £10 per person per night (we provide tents and sleeping bags) to B&B or hotels at £35 per person per night upwards.

Where are our Adventure Weekends?

These days are based in the Peak District National Park. We base ourselves in the Hope Valley near Hathersage. We’ll send you details on booking, but to see where we are check out Google Maps for the area. It’s between Sheffield and Manchester.


Spend a relaxing weekend with your friends or colleagues trying out new exciting activities! No experience needed – expert instruction is provided for all activities.

This is a typical weekend – you can add other activities if you like such as mountain biking – just call us!

Rock Climbing – On the edges in the north of the Peak District, an ideal way to start climbing with all grades of climb.

Abseiling – from rocks or a 100 foot viaduct over a river!

Weaseling (or Rock Scrambling) – scrambling through rocks and small caves, a highly popular fun activity.

Mountain scramble and hike – ascend the highest hills in the Peak District the exciting way!

The cost of the weekend includes:

  • Instruction on every activity by fully qualified and experienced instructors
  • All specialist equipment

It doesn’t include:

  • Travel Insurance (this can be taken out by you, but make sure it includes hazardous activities)
  • Lunch and evening meals
  • Transport to the Peak District and to/from activities


We’ll book this for you; just choose which type of accommodation you’d like according to the group’s budget and preference.

Cost is £96 per person for which you need a group of 8 people


All specialist equipment is provided – helmets, wetsuits, harnesses etc. as appropriate.

You will need generally:

  • Waterproof jacket
  • Plenty of rough old clothes
  • Changes of footwear
  • A small rucsac for lunch, drink, spare clothing etc.

For Rock scrambling: clothes you are prepared to discard afterwards

For Hillwalking: walking boots, small rucsac (for spare clothes, lunch etc.), waterproof jacket & trousers, hat & gloves, torch, spare jumper.

For Rock climbing: loose clothes, trainers (not boots)

For Abseiling: nothing


  1. Walking boots don’t need to be big old fashioned leather boots. The crucial thing is that they have a good grip on the sole. Trainers aren’t suitable, but outdoor type shoes, trekking boots or lightweight walking boots are fine.
  2. Please make sure your waterproof jacket is waterproof. Usually training tops like Nike, Adidas etc are not waterproof; nor are ski jackets.
  3. Fleeces or woollen jumpers are great; sweatshirts or any other cotton tops are no good at all for keeping you warm.
  4. Please don’t ignore the ‘torch’ item. Make sure you have a working torch with batteries. This is important for safety in case we are caught out late.
  5. Don’t bother bringing anything valuable or even vaguely smart; it’s really not worth it.
  6. Mobile phones can be a distraction from activities; also bear in mind that the signal is very poor and non-existent in places.

Other information

  • Each morning we meet to brief you on what you need for the day etc. at 9.00a.m.; we aim to leave at 9.30.
  • We will stop to buy packed lunches on the way to the first activity
  • You will need to sign a disclaimer and medical form and send this in with your booking. You must tell us of any medical condition whether you think it relevant or not.

  • After activities we will have dinner at an appropriate (often pub) venue. This will vary as locations & timing of activities varies.
  • The Trekking Company use highly qualified and experienced staff to run activities – sometimes we have to modify, cut short or change an activity due to the weather or other safety factors. Whilst this is unusual, if it happens we will always try to provide you with another activity.
