If you're going to jump off a waterfall in Wales on a stag weekend then make sure you make a splash!
Here's a great video of one of our stag parties coasteering on the Gower Peninsula in Swansea, Wales. THis is one of our popular activities and you can see why it works so well with our stag party weekend groups. However it's not for all our groups as it is physically demanding and requires benign weather conditions with a high tide. For more information on our coasteering activity in Wales then click here.
Here's a video of our stag party group a few weeks ago trying canyoning in the Brecon Beacons. This is a stag party who get a real buzz from white water rafting but without the raft as we descriobe our canyoning activity. Why wouldn't you get a buzz when you're jumping off 30ft waterfalls especially when the stag ahs to go first
It's also a great activity for corporate team building events.
Bear Grylls has actually realised what we've known for many years that the Brecon Beacons offers one of the best outdoor adventure playgrounds in the UK. It's an ideal environment to get up close and personal with the untamed and wild landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Bear is bringing his 24 Hour Family Survival course to the area.
The Bear 24 Hour Family Course will comprise a combination of survival skills including how to build and light a fire, how to navigate at night, best ways to use a knife for survival, foraging for grubs and rodents, building a shelter, extreme weather survival and river crossings. This mimics our very own father and son 3 day day 2 night activity break which we have successfully run for many years in the Brecon Beacons, our home. Using our extensive local knowledge we've put together this family activity break which includes the above activities plus gorge walking and camping! Here's a video showing the type of activities the fathers and sons experience during their activity break in the Brecon Beacons with Adventure Britain.
Special Offer for Stag and Hens
Although there are no definitive stats to say how many people actually get engaged in the UK on St.Valentine’s Day research completed by the latest American Express Spending and Saving Tracker consumer report surveyed Americans’ Valentine’s Day plans and found that six million couples are likely to get engaged on February 14th 2013, reports the Huffington Post. I suspect the number is just as surprising in the UK and the rest of the World where St.Valentine's Day is celebrated.
To celebrate this auspicious day we’d like to offer our customers this special deal with free places for all those individuals who became potential hens and stags on Valentines Day! Yes that rite of passage is now upon you and you'll have to start thinking about your respective stag parties and hen parties

Adventure Britain's Activity
Call of the Wild's Adventure Britain activity very much falls within the canyoning, river running and adventure walk descriptions set out above. Canyoning or canyoneering with Adventure Britain in the Brecon Beacons, Wales is not to be confused with the other activities such as gorge walking. Adventure Britain's canyoning sessions are very much for the adrenaline junky! How does jumping off 20ft waterfalls sound? What about a 30ft waterfall? If this sounds appealing then give us a call because this is the activity for you.
“Most fantastic fun we’ve had for ages. Can’t stop talking about canyoning. Instructors were brilliant, excellent sense of humour and very patient. This was great value – the perfect weekend.” Connie Sutherland
The best way of describing our canyoning activity is white water rafting but without the raft. With our guides, you descend a stunning steep sided gorge by various ways and means. This can involve sliding down rapids, swimming down rapids, floating down fast flowing chutes and waves, walking behind some breathtaking waterfalls and of course jumping off those jaw dropping waterfalls.
“I would like to thank you for a fantastic weekend we all had with Adventure Britain. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed all the activities and everything ran like clockwork. Canyoning was amazing.” Dave Nicholson

People often ask us when they phone to ask about about stag weekends what our most popular activities are. One of the most popular is our quad biking activity. This seems to be for a number of reasons. These are the group's comments and not ours.
You don't just slowly amble around a filed in the follow the leader type activity. These are large 250cc bikes which you travel off-road through forest tracks on. Secondly you a get a chance to get up close and personal with the stunning Welsh countryside. Thirdly it offers excellent value for money (our clients feedback to us not just our view) and finally and as importantly it's the qulaity of the staff who take the activity. Griff and Paul are legendary!
Take a look at this video of the quad biking activity and you can see for yourself why it is such a popular stag weekend activity idea with our stag weekend groups.
