Welcome to the High Tide Adventure Company. We are an adventure pursuit company, passionate about the outdoors, and committed to delivering the most memorable and enjoyable adventure to all you thrill seekers.
Based by the wild coast of the North Sea, we specialise in delivering exhilarating activities across Northumberland, The Lake District, North Yorkshire and the Scottish Borders, so no mater where you are in the North, there is always an adventure to be had nearby.
Our professional, friendly, fully-trained instructors offer a wide range of activities for you to enjoy. These include coasteering, ghyll scrambling, mountaineering and bushcraft.
We continually review and improve the activities on offer and have plans to introduce some exciting new activities in the near future, to further expand our already exciting range.
Check out our full offering below.
Coasteering is an exhilarating, adventurous journey exploring the coastline. It combines sea-level traversing, scrambling and climbing along the rocks. As a Coasteerer you will jump, step-out and use other methods of entering the water and moving around obstacles. Essentially it is a dynamic use of the coastline with short bursts of wild swimming as a spectacular journey along our coastline.
Coasteering is the best way to experience the true beauty of the stunning north-east coast where you are surrounded by the elements and nature and often encounter amazing wildlife such as dolphins and seals.
Our coasteering venue is a beautiful location used exclusively by High Tide Adventure Company, which has crystal blue water and spectacular rocks to play amongst.
Canyoning is a high adrenaline activity in the beauty of a canyon or gorge (steep-sided cliff or river-bank) as part of a natural water course. A canyon-journey will take you down and through a gorge/canyon, navigating through streams, pools and waterfalls. As a Canyoneer you will hike, climb, wild swim, slide, jump and abseil down waterfalls, making your way through the gorge, often using more technical equipment for safety i.e when abseiling.
The venues that High Tide Adventure uses are in the Lake District, with a variety of canyons used depending on the level of challenge and adventure required.
Gorge Walking is a challenging, fun activity which can either be up or downstream. Unlike crayoning it normally it doesn’t involve the use of technical equipment to aid your journey through the gorge. A typical journey will involve, scrambling, climbing, jumps, slides and other team or individual challenges.
Venues include Northumberland, Lake District, North Yorkshire and North Wales. All gorges offer different level of adventure and challenge.
Mountaineering is a journey normally to a mountain-summit, hill-top or agreed location. To maximise your mountaineering journey, it can include other adventure skills such as scrambling, climbing, ‘Via Ferrata’ and abseiling (depending on ability). Mountaineering always takes place in a beautiful location, normally offering stunning views (weather-dependent) and opportunities to explore nature and view wildlife.
Venues include the north-east of England, Lake District, Yorkshire, Wales and Scotland and other specially-chosen locations outside the British Isles.
Climbing is an exciting adventure activity that involves climbing up or down and traversing across natural rock or artificial rock walls. The goal is usually to reach a summit using a graded route. Venues all over the UK are used.
Bushcraft is all about learning wilderness and survival skills to thrive in the natural outdoor environment. Skills like fire-building, fire-lighting, outdoor-cooking, shelter-building and hand-tool skills are developed.
Sessions usually take place at the High Tide Adventure Company Bushcraft & Survival venue, which is 9-acres of beautiful woodland just outside of Brancepeth near Durham. But can also be delivered at your venue or (for school parties) even in school grounds.
Survival Experience aims to develop the skills and abilities to live (or exist) during (or following) a ‘difficult circumstance’. High Tide Adventure Company will teach you the key survival skills you require and then put you in a simulated survival situation lasting 12, 24 or 48 hours.
