Llangollen Adventure Lectures – July 2016

At ProAdventure we’re celebrating our 25th Anniversary, and earlier this year we began hosting an informal series of lectures with the aim of gathering together local mountain bikers, rafters, kayakers, climbers, hill runners, walkers and even cavers, to come and listen and talk about their adventures.

proadv lecture

Dave, of ‘canoeing down Everest’ fame gave a  talk about a few of his adventures in places people don’t normally go to, unfortunately Ian (a.k.a. Badger) from Oneplanet-Adventure Llandegla couldn’t make it as he had to work at the mountain bike centre.

Dave started with a brief run down of the first Canoeing Down Everest expedition in 1976, where the team kayaked down the mighty Dudh Khosi River in Nepal in 4 metre fibre glass kayaks with 3.5 kg of cine camera gaffer taped to the front. They drove 7,500 miles to Nepal in a borrowed Transit, walked 180 miles with their kayaks and paddled the river, here is Dave’s summary, Continue reading Llangollen Adventure Lectures – July 2016

coffeeoTo most people, coffee is a means to keep you awake when you need to sleep. To others, it is simply a pleasure, although coffee is too broad a term to be used without some qualification.

Tentipi Gathering at Underhill Farm, near Oswestry

Tentipi-Underhill FarmBLOGThe 2016 Tentipi Gathering has a new venue this year at Underhill Farm. Located on the Shropshire-Welsh border in the village of Pant, Underhill Farm was once a dairy farm until 1972, complete with a medieval cottage and 19th century barn. The Evison family became owners in 2009 and have used eco-techniques and recycled materials to create a unique venue for individuals, families and groups to relax and explore the local natural environment.

Pant is near Oswestry with Offa’s Dyke only a stone’s throw away, and there are limestone cliffs and quarries to explore along with a great industrial heritage to investigate.

The Tentipi Gathering will be held over the weekend 24th to 26th June and the weekend starts when you join us on Friday evening around the campfire for coffee and cake. The rest of the weekend will be full of various activities – you can throw a pot from local clay, join us for a walk and a storytelling adventure, whittle something from wood, do a little axe throwing or toddle off and do your own thing. There is also canal and train rides available locally as well as canoe hire and climbing on the limestone cliffs if you have your own gear.

Tipi hire is £85 for the weekend and includes two adults and two children. If you have your own Tipi the weekend will cost you just £25 per person (under-18s half price and under-5s are free). The camping fee includes your pitch, use of toilets, shower and mains water, lots of conversation and fun activities.

Although the Tentipi Gathering is a family camp there will be open fires and bush-craft activities involving knives and axes. There are also two ponds on the main camping field so please remember that you will be responsible for your children at all times.

Well behaved dogs are welcome but MUST be on a lead at ALL times. They are only allowed in your own tent and not in the kitchen, (did we mention there is an indoor kitchen you can use?), or other farm buildings.

For a fantastic weekend camping experience book a place at the 2016 Tentipi Gathering online or just call us on 01978 860605.

The Rally of Wales brought Llangollen firm, Pro Adventure Ltd it’s largest ever sale in the form of a small village of tipi’s for a big PR event for the Rally of Wales and Hyundai UK.

The tents, complete with floors and wood burning stoves, were used as part of a media programme for Hyundai UK.   Hyundai were main sponsors of the welsh rally and were keen to give journalists a access to the rally and an adventurous overnight experience which was completely different to the usual corporate hospitality they might experience.

The journalists were flown from London to see the rally, and accommodated in the Tentipi Tents supplied by ProAdventure
