Outward Bound Adventures all have one thing in common. At the end, you'll know what you're worth. Your confidence will grow and you'll learn how to believe in yourself.

Take a step into finding out what you are truly capable of.

What you'll be doing

No two Outward Bound adventures are the same. Your group's appetite for adventure will shape what you do each day.

You'll take journeys into the wild and explore the natural environment. Stretch your comfort zone with activities like hiking, canoeing, gorge scrambling, abseiling, rock climbing, rafting, kayaking and wild swimming.

A highlight will be your overnight expedition, where you'll spend the day journeying to your wild camp and then spend the night under the stars.

So, whilst we can't tell you exactly what you'll be doing, we guarantee you will have fun and be challenged.

  • A fun and challenging adventure in the wild
  • Something new and challenging
  • Develop workplace skills
  • Make new friends
  • A break from screens and social media
  • Explore the natural environment

Outward Bound

SO fun! A week by beautiful Loch Eil really helped with social skills and confidence. Awesome time, the best part was definitely climbing Ben Nevis which was actually easier than I thought. Chris (the instructor) was great and all the activities were amazing. Thank you so much Outward Bound!
