About The Event
Come and take on the perfect outdoor challenge this October - hike, climb, abseil, problem solve, camp wild, swim and cliff jump your way across the Mourne Mountains!
Starting either in a pair or small group, you and your family/friends will navigate your way through the Mournes completing a range of tasks along the way. You will have to solve problems, build structures, boulder rivers, climb AND descend rock faces – on a rope held by our experienced instructors of course- and loads more along the way.
At the end of the first day's course, you’ll reach a beautiful wild camping site where our experienced bushcraft instructors will pass on knowledge to help you prepare your bed for the night, which will be built by you and your team completely from the natural environment around you! Once your amazing home is built from nature, we will spend some time showing you some basic survival skills that will get you through the evening outdoors in surprising comfort.
With outdoor cooking led by us, we’ll feed you with some hot and tasty grub by the fire and even supply a few drinks for you after your hard day’s adventuring.
That night, we’ll take you to the edge of the campsite and tell tales of the stars, how the ancient Greeks and Celtic people viewed the night sky, and into the modern era of astronomy, with some fascinating facts equally as awe inspiring as the myths.
The next morning, we will have some breakfast, take down our camp – leaving no trace that we were there – and transport you around to Bloody Bridge for a refreshing and exhilarating morning of wet bouldering and coasteering, before heading back home buzzing!
This weekend adventure is perfect for people of a moderate to good level of fitness who are up for spending 30 hours straight in the great outdoors trying a variety of outdoor challenges.
