Wet or dry, large or small - we have abseiling for all  

Abseiling is a great way to have an adventure without a huge amount of skill or fitness needed. 

Its easy to get competent at and you get a bit of a rush as you first go over the edge.

There are a range of variations from a huge Mega-Abseil, to Aqua-seiling, where we abseil waterfalls and combine this with rock climbing for a mixed experience.

We also have regular-height abseiling venues for regular people and families with children.
