We are pleased to announce a link up with Hawk Adventures based in Golden Grove, Carmarthenshire to provide a number of activities based on our land here at Llanerchindda, there are also a number of other activities they can provide in the area, please see below for more details:

Activities that are available on-site or based from Llanerchindda:

Hill Walking:

We can tailor the day to suit your needs, whether hills or mountains, easily accessible or very remote and we can provide the skills and knowledge that go with it – map reading skills, weather prediction, route-finding, geology, history, and much more.

Archery :

Archery is an activity that has been a firm favourite for many years. Our experienced instructors will give you training on safe use of the ‘bow & arrow’, then coaching on how to find you aim. After that its all about practice in this surprisingly addictive sport.

For those with a competitive streak we can turn the activity into a friendly competition and the ‘best with the bow’ will win a medal.

This activity is perfect for participants of all ages, from school groups to stag do’s, archery is a personal skill event that allows you to challenge yourself and your fellow competitors.

We can include Archery as part of a Multi-Activity day or can deliver it as a stand alone event anywhere in South Wales that has the space to accommodate a safe working area.

Adventure Walks:

See the real wilderness of the area by walking, scrambling and climbing over the terrain. Get that remote feeling, choosing to take the more challenging routes, while knowing you’re safe under the watchful eye of your knowledgeable instructor. Not to be dismissed as the tame choice!

This is a walking activity that combines a variety of challenges of your choice to create an epic journey through the landscape of Wales.

Problem solving & team exercises:

This is an area we have specialised in for the last 20 years. We can organise and deliver a huge range of Problem Solving Activities for Teams. These can range from reasonably straight forward 30 minute challenges through to complex Team Challenges lasting a day or two. We design the problems to meet your needs and the problems can be indoor or outdoor based.

We have delivered these as elements of a bigger event or as Challenges, both as competitions and as straightforward individual and Team problems to solve.

Problem Solving is usually requested as part of a Challenge Event, for Development Courses or as a part of Team Building Events.

Power kiting:

Power kites inconsiderately cast the toys of your childhood to one side and step this tame pastime up a gear!

Imagine a kite, now think bigger… bigger… bigger… Power kite!

We’ll teach you how to get them up, keep them there, then use the power of the wind to move you along the ground or up in the air. Kiting is a fun activity that anyone can do, and you’ll find yourself having quite a workout at the same time.

The kites we use are over 3m² and big enough to lift you off the floor (with the right wind and technique), they even have brakes to slow you down or bring you back to earth. Power kiting makes for a great half day activity, especially as part of a multi activity day with Archery, Orienteering or as part of a Beach Day.

River Crossings (Tyroleans):

River crossing can be anything from a simple rope from side to side on which to slide, to a complicated rope-and-plank engineering masterpiece resembling Tower Bridge, and everything in between.

These rope crossings are great fun to build, and rather exciting to use, given that you built it yourself! Don’t worry though, our experienced staff will always be on hand to keep things safe and guide you to success.

River Crossings can be organised as a half day activity on their own, as part of an Adventure Walk or challenging Team Event. They can also be combined with other activities to form part of a Multi Activity package.

Raft Building:

A super Team Challenge that can be undertaken with just a small group or with a number of teams. The idea is simple, build a raft, climb aboard and sail off in to the sunset. The reality is much more engaging, and entertaining.

We provide all of the equipment to build the raft, the venue and the safety equipment (buoyancy aids, helmets, etc.).

You provide the ideas, designs and building skills. When building is complete it’s time to test the rafts on the water – anything can happen and usually does!!

Raft building makes a great half day activity on its own, or as part of a challenging Team Event. They can also be combined with other activities to form part of a Multi Activity package.

Canoeing & Kayaking for beginners:

We are able to offer a wide range of events on the water in either Canoes or Kayaks. As with other activities, you can undertake Taster Sessions, or learn Skills. You can try a half or whole day or undertake a canoe expedition and camp out overnight.

The Rivers and Canals of South Wales give us the opportunity to deliver just the session you are looking for – whether still water, moving water or white water, our qualified and experienced staff will provide an event to remember.

Bushcraft:

Bushcraft is all about using the natural world around you, not just to survive, but to thrive. Common elements of our Bushcraft activity include fire lighting, shelter building, foraging, using a knife and other tools and wilderness cooking.

Our Bushcraft activities last for either a half or a whole day and will be run by an experienced outdoor instructor with excellent wilderness and survival skills.

No experience is necessary to come on our Bushcraft days, we’ll just build on whatever skills you have and introduce you to new things on the way.

We have blended classic approaches to Bushcraft that are tried and tested by organisations like the Scouts and the Military and combined them with modern thinking by people like Ray Mears and Bear Grylls to make our sessions practical, interesting and thoroughly enjoyable.
