13-15 years
From £699.00
Is this Adventure for me?

For 13-15 year olds who enjoy being in the outdoors and are seeking to challenge themselves with a longer, more adventurous expedition.

All Outward Bound Adventures have some things in common.

You’ll enjoy authentic outdoor activities in National Parks and wild places, guided by highly-qualified instructors.

It will be a path of discovery. A chance to have fun, be curious and make new friends. Before you know it, you’ll be stepping outside your comfort zone and discovering your talents.

Your confidence will grow and you'll learn how to believe in yourself.

We can only accept promotional codes when you select “pay the deposit now”. The value of your promotion will then be deducted from your final invoice.


Spend 7 days (6 nights) away from home, staying at one of our residential centres in an awe-inspiring location. As part of your adventure, you'll journey to an overnight wild camp, making your way on foot, water or both, and spend an unforgettable night out in the wild.

A Ridge Adventure is more challenging than Basecamp, so you're likely to already have outdoors experience, such as being part of Scouts or Guides, or been to Outward Bound before. But with more challenge, comes more fun and more discovery.

You will learn what you are really capable of by tackling something new and different. Making the most of the natural environment, you'll stretch yourself further outside of your comfort zone with a range of challenging outdoor activities in some amazing locations.

Whatever happens, you'll have a memorable week exploring the great outdoors. The ultimate digital detox away from screens and the distractions of life. You'll make friends for life and grow the skills and strategies you can use in the outside world, like; motivation, independence and personal responsibility. You'll even build workplace skills that stand out on your CV, ready for the future.

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 the two overnight expeditions, where you'll take two different journeys to a wild camp and then spend the night under the stars. The first expedition will be instructor-led, the second is an opportunity for your group to take more of the lead and see what you can do.

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

Do It!

I had an amazing time at Loch Eil! I tried every adventure that I could as I didn't want to miss out or regret not having tried later. The team spirit, camaraderie and encouragement from everyone including the coaches was amazing. You'll make friends, have fun and surprise yourself.
