Where do I Start?

We love the outdoors and we want you to enjoy it too!

Breese Adventures was born out of a love for the outdoors and the mountains.  We understand the barriers that can get in the way which prevent you getting out there and want to help you do something you never thought you could.  However big or small your adventure might be we are here to provide friendly personalised support so you can achieve your goals and go home with memories, achievements and even some new friends.

 

Barriers we have come across…

“I don’t have anyone to go with”

Yes you do! Our events are made up of groups of likeminded people, usually 6-12 of them and because our events are graded they will all have around the same experience and ability as you. Some of our events are even specially tailored, for example: singles, over 50’s, women only. Our qualified and experienced guides will be with you throughout your adventure.

“I don’t know where to start”

We do! We have a range of events which will hopefully provide you with some inspiration. If there is an adventure or a challenge you have always wanted to do or a hill or mountain you’ve always wanted to try but you can’t find it here have a look at our ‘Your Adventure’ section.

“I don’t know what I need”

That’s what we’re here for! Once you have registered for your event we will sent out all the information you need including training advice and a kit list. It is important to us that you have all the advice and support you need running up to your adventure and we are always at the end of an email or a phone to answer any questions.

With a mixture of experience, frustration, age denial and skills developed over the years between us we will make sure, whichever event you chose it will be YOUR challenge and YOUR adventure.
