UK Tentipi Camp May 2017 – North Wales

 

Tentipi camps have been popular in Europe for many years, where a like minded bunch of people, who have a common love of camping in their Tentipi Tents, get together to socialise, play and have a good weekend.

ProAdventure held the UK’s first Tentipi Camp in April 2015 on the banks of the River Dee, attended by over 60 people. There were bushcraft activities, canoeing and plenty of opportunity to talk around the campfire.
Our 2016 camp, held in the Welsh borders was just as popular with old friends and new enjoying the scenery and activities offered by our campsite hosts at Underhill Farm.

We aim to make every camp a little bit different and we are learning as we go. Our first camp this year is at Carrog on the River Dee from 5th to 7th May. We would love to invite you along if you have your own Tentipi and if you are interested in buying Tentipi we have a few Tipis for hire but be quick as they go fast. Either way you will need to book.

The New Age of Outdoor Legwear

 

One of the most common questions I get asked from women starting out walking or even more experienced walkers is ‘why can I never find walking trousers that fit?’. Whilst women are defining their own realms of greatness in the outdoors, outdoor clothing can sometimes feel a little slow on the catch up. For years I have had to apologise to women of all shapes and sizes for the lack of comfortable outdoor trousers, whether it be for climbing, walking, travel or just enjoying the outdoors in style. However, a revolution is happening but is it here to stay?
