Land Activities


Determination and courage are rewarded with an overwhelming sense of achievement for the student who manages to walk backwards over the edge of a climbing tower. In addition to learning a new skill, abseiling enables students to understand risks and how to control them.


On our outdoor range learn how to shoot arrows at the targets provided. Once hitting the target work on developing on skill, and improving your precision shooting from different distances. You will be shooting with real bows and arrows that are suited to size.


Would you be able to survive in the woods? Come for a fantastic day of bushcraft for families. You'll need to organise your shelter, water, warmth and food with the expert guidance of your instructor. The perfect course for beginners into the exciting and rewarding world of Bushcraft.

High & Low Ropes

These High & Low Rope Courses including a Jacob's Ladder are designed for family fun, fitness and team building. Children and adults alike will love the exhilaration of a big healthy day out with courses designed to be fun and challenging for all ages.

Safety is paramount; all safety equipment is supplied and participants are fully instructed on its usage before beginning the course.

Cargo Nets

Climb the nets !! The Cargo Nets used on their own or as part of the High & Low ropes activities acts like a flexible ladder which you can use to move in both vertical and horizontal direction. A cargo net climber has fun and excitement and can challenge themselves at their own pace.

Climbing Wall

Come and try Climbing - after a brief introduction you will be guided through your first experience. These "have-a-go" sessions are all about encouraging you to scale that wall.


A great way to start climbing - this is rope less climbing at low heights.

Zip Wire

Attached to the overhead wire - simply step off the platform to begin an exhilarating flight through the air! The speed and thrill of the flight will have you wanting more and more.


If you've ever wanted to walk a tightrope high above the circus floor then this could be for you.
The increasingly popular activity of Slacklining involves walking across a bouncy, highly-tensioned, single piece of webbing that may be only a couple inches off the ground - but is exciting and will put your sense of balance to the test.

Leap Of Faith

Focus - determination - trust! Will you make that leap?


The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a Centre map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace!

Nature Trail

Getting some fresh air and stopping to look at the natural world around you is a great way to engage with the environment, and get some exercise at the same time. Information stations take you around Llanishen. Enjoy!

Raft Building

With only a few barrels, logs and some lengths of rope you and your team will need to design a raft capable of holding your team whilst on the water.

Your team will need to ensure it is planned and well built otherwise you will be getting wet!

Team Building & Problem Solving

With our purpose built team challenge exercises you will be set a number of problem solving puzzles. You and your team will progress through our course, working together and executing your pre planned ideas. These will be both physical and mental puzzles so you will need to be ready for a challenging time.

All the activities are designed to encourage teams to appreciate each others strengths when it comes to planning communication adaptability trust and decision making.


Do you like a challenge and a breath of fresh air? We have the perfect setting for a high-tech treasure hunt.

Geocaching is an exciting outdoor adventure for the whole family. It"s a treasure hunt for the digital generation, where you can enjoy the freedom of being outside and discovering new places. All you need is a handheld GPS and a sense of fun.
