Test yourself

Try something a little tougher. Abseil down the Orbit in the Olympic Park, climb Ben Nevis, or cycle from London to Paris, celebrating your achievement under the Eiffel Tower.

Abseil down the Orbit

Experience the UK’s highest freefall abseil from the UK’s tallest sculpture. The ArcelorMittal Orbit is one of the most striking and enduring visual legacies of the London 2012 Olympic Games, standing at 115 metres, it offers extraordinary 20 mile views across the London skyline.

Trained instructors will give a comprehensive safety briefing and provide all the specialist equipment you need before escorting you to the upper viewing platform and getting you ready. Then it’s all up to you.

From there, you begin an exhilarating descent, holding your breath at first but feeling the thrill grow as you near the ground. One thing is for sure, you will never forget this experience.

Climb Ben Nevis

Standing at 1344 metres above sea level, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK and the perfect place to see what you’re made of.

You will experience some of Scotland’s most breath-taking scenery and witness the magnificent views across the Grampian Mountains. The greenness of the valley slowly giving way to cold and grey rock and the harshest of conditions. This mountain will test your resolve but if you push yourself, you will witness something spectacular.

Once done, you return to your hotel where you can while away the evening recounting your amazing adventure with your new found friends.

London to Paris bike ride

This iconic challenge begins in Crystal Palace and winds south through the beautiful Kent countryside before reaching the famous white cliffs of Dover. From here you catch the ferry to Calais for your first overnight stop.

Stunning picturesque countryside awaits you in northern France as you travel south from Calais towards Paris. Cycling through small market towns and along beautiful river valleys you will experience stunning scenery and historic places of interest.

When you reach the beautiful city of Paris, you will have a short ride along the famous wide boulevards before reaching your finishing point at the Eiffel Tower.
