Rise above your fear and come out feeling free er.  Enjoy the thrill of descending down a rock face with nothing but ropes.

Tackle multiple pitches of varying heights and feel the rush surge through your veins. Once you are over the fear factor, you’ll want to do abseiling over and over again.  All safety gear is provided and you are guided by qualified professionals.

And if the feeling of going backwards isn’t your thing, then how about rap jumping, SAS style.

Finally wrap up with a beauty photoshoot in a professional studio by a fashion photographer.

Flyboarding is a fun new experience. It is a sport like no other where you fly, swim and walk on water.

You are supplied with all the gear, and briefed by a qualified trainer on the equipment and how to use it.
