In our opinion, time shared = time better spent.
But when we talk about ‘sharing time’ with one another, we don’t mean being sat in the same room, glued to our smartphones and tablets with the TV on in the background. Oh no. Sharing time is all about setting quality time aside to spend with your loved ones – your kids, partner, parents or your best buds. It means switching off all of those distractions and sharing some awesome experiences with one another.
Summer provides the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and share some quality time with the people you love. Stuck for ideas? Here are 10 suggestions:
Ghyll scrambling (also called gorge scrambling) is a wet ‘n’ wild outdoor activity perfect for thrill-seeking families, couples and groups. Hop across boulders, clamber up waterfalls, slide down natural rock chutes and plunge into pools of water. What’s not to love?
Round-up the tribe and experience the sunrise in a totally new way – that is, from the basket of a hot air balloon. After your airborne adventure, why not visit a local café for some brekky?
Hire a boat and set sail on the Lake District’s majestic, turquoise waters. Take in turns to row and enjoy a picnic with dramatic, rugged mountains as your backdrop.
A summer BBQ is essential – a time to kick back and relax with your loved ones and tuck into some gorgeous, grilled grub.
It’s not all about the views from the top – it’s also about the adventures you have along the way. Don your finest walking boots and head out on a group hike; catch up with friends and family as you climb the hills and enjoy a picnic together when you reach the top.
Go back to basics and set up camp, whether it’s at a local campsite, in your back garden or out in the wild in Dartmoor National Park. Spend your evenings under the stars, sat around a campfire, sharing stories and joking about old times. A truly wholesome experience.
Explore Britain on all fours by booking a group horse ride. Choose your location – along beaches, across moors or through forests, etc.
Get on your bikes – and if you don’t have one, hire one! A group bike ride is a great opportunity to spend quality time with one another, whether you’re tearing up the trails, riding through the countryside or taking it easy on a cycle path. Don’t set a destination, just ride until you find somewhere beautiful to stop.
Hire some wetsuits and surfboards (or bodyboards) and catch some waves as the sun begins to set. And don’t worry if you spend more time in the sea than you do on your board!
Re-connect with nature and take the tribe to Go Ape! Choose to swing through the trees on one of our award-winning Tree-Top Adventure courses, or head out en masse aboard our Forest Segways.
