Adventurous Activity Company canoeing trip Bristol


Based right in the centre of Bristol, the Adventurous Activity Company offers an exciting range of outdoor activities that really make the most of the city's stunning scenery.

Whether it's climbing or abseiling the spectactular Avon Gorge, canoeing in the beautiful Harbourside or orienteering through the buzzing cityscape - the Adventurous Activity Company’s unique activity packages have something for everyone. You can tailor the activities  they offer to meet your requirements, ability, time and budget.

Urban Adventure Challenge

Perfect for Stag and Hen groups, birthdays, or even just for fun, the Urban Adventure Challenge is a fun and unusual way to explore Bristol and is the ideal group activity... It's always a lot of fun, rewarding, and very competitive! A unique mix of treasure hunting, problem solving, adventure racing and orienteering, all based around some of Bristol's most stunning sights.


Climb aboard the large, stable 2/3 person open Canadian style canoes for a fun, relaxing and alternative mode of transport. Learn the techniques, then take a tour through the heart of Bristol or fully guided paddles around the ever-changing harbourside. This is an opportunity to see Bristol from a completely different perspective.


This exhilarating activity will really test your nerve! By controlling your own descent with back up from an instructor, you will be rewarded with an unforgettable experience. Just don't forget to stop and look at the view! Held in the stunning Avon Gorge, this is the type of experience you'll remember forever.
