About The Event
International Stress Awareness Week – Monday 2ndNovember to Sunday 8th November
Like a lot of people across our wee country and beyond, you might be stressed about plenty of things in your life, and often we focus our attentions on tasks that MUST be done – spending extra hours at work, your public image on social media, needing more money to buy things for our homes, and of course dealing with Covid-19. Although these things can be important, we can often lose focus on what’s really important – family, friends, exercise, finding time to relax, being in nature.
To help show you some ways to alleviate the pressures of day to day life, Geology Rocks Adventure is offering a range of activities across the week designed to take your focus off the difficult things in your life and refocus your attention on the important things that really matter, all while being outdoors, being connected to nature, being engaged in relaxing – and often exciting! – activities and most importantly, spending quality time with loved ones that will help make you feel good again. Decompress this week with Geology Rocks Adventure, try something new and rediscover the real you – cheesy but true!
All Activities are suitable for ages 8 -108!

Monday 2nd November
Slieve Donard Summit Hike (£30pp)
Start your destress week by getting your legs moving, on this physically demanding but highly rewarding hike to Northern Ireland’s highest peak! Guaranteed to clear the head with spectacular views of the Mournes and maybe even as far afield as Belfast, Dublin and even the Isle of Man!
Tuesday 3rd November
Rock Climbing Taster Day (£60pp)
For some people, dealing with stress is about trying new and exciting things. If this is you, try our Rock Climbing Taster Day, it is guaranteed to refocus all of your attentions onto one thing , staying on the rock and making your way to the top! Our safe, experienced and fun instructors will make sure the climbing is pitched to your level so you leave us buzzing and smiling. It’s meant to be a destress day, not one to add to the stress!
Wednesday 4th November
Slieve Binnian By Night (£30pp)
What better way to reconnect with nature than to gaze into the night sky from one of the highest peaks in the country, walking through the stunning tors of rock on the summit and seeing how the constellations above us can transport you back in time. With the help of our story teller / mountain leaders, we’ll reset the clock on stress and reignite your imagination on this guide night hike.
Thursday 5th November
Coasteering and Climbing on the Causeway Coast (£60pp / £66pp with lunch)
Do you need adventure in your life? Often a high octane adventure is exactly what we need to relax and reset. Our Causeway Coast adventure day will start with rock climbing near the sea, scaling rock faces of different difficulty while hearing the waves nearby to relax, followed by an exciting and refreshing dunk into the sea after lunch for cliff jumps, cave swims, wave washes and more! Definitely a day to book onto!
Friday 6th November
Introduction to Navigation day (£45pp)
Learn something new and spend a day in the hills, focussing your mind on the fine detail of the map, let all the other worries of your life fade to background as you find your path through the mountains with our experienced mountain leaders
Saturday 7th November
Lower Cove Hike, Cave, Climb and Abseil Experience (£50pp / £55pp with cooked breakfast to start the day)
Do you love being in the mountains and fancy trying something a bit different? This day will combine the pleasure of easy hiking into the heart of the Mourne Mountains with some new and exciting adventure activities you may not have tried. The narrow cave in the side of the mountain guides you to the summit where we hook you in for a 150 foot abseil back to the ground! After this buzz you can spend a bit of time focussing your mind on some climbing skills as you scale the cliff you just came down. Climbing truly is a meditative activity, your focus is 100% on the task at hand, everything else simply goes away for the time you’re on the rock. A perfect day for family, friends or even by yourself.
Sunday 8th November
Paddleboards and Picnics (£35pp)
If you fancy a really relaxing day out then look no further than our paddleboards and picnics day. We’ll guide you along some beautiful flat water on our paddle boards, spotting gorgeous wildlife along the way, before stopping on the canal bank for some lovely lunch provided by us.
