Sense of Adventure...
Saturday 9th April marks the start of the
Northern Ireland Adventureland Weekend. The first of its kind
in Northern Ireland, 23 activity providers from across the country
are showcasing over 100 outdoor activities during a unique weekend
of splashes, dashes and crashes in a bid to highlight a variety
of adventure activities that will really get your adrenaline pumping.
Moreover, all the activity events taking place over the course
of the weekend will be on offer for only £10 per person.
This weekend is the perfect opportunity
for groups of friends, couples and adventure seeking families
to get outdoors and have a go mountain boarding in the Mournes,
sea kayaking along the North Coast or paintballing in the Sperrins.
For that little bit more adventure you can feel the full force
of the Irish Sea swell coasteering along the Ballyhornan coastline
or test out your mountain biking skills on Northern Ireland’s
first ever pump track in Fermanagh.
There will be Sea Safari boat trips heading out along both the
North Coast and Strangford Lough as well as opportunities for
a more relaxing canoeing trip, picnic and BBQ along the Lower
Bann Canoe Trail to name just a few.
This Adventureland weekend has been organised
by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) in association with
OutdoorNI.com. NITB’s Product Marketing Officer Helen Carey
says this weekend provides the perfect opportunity for people
across Northern Ireland to discover the wealth of opportunities
to get active right on their doorsteps.
For those who maybe wish to try out a number of different outdoor
activities there are 2 hour ‘taster sessions’ on offer
sampling activities such as archery, laser skirmishing, canoeing,
climbing and low ropes courses to name just a few.
Chris Scott from OutdoorNI.com added, “This
is the first time that activity providers in Northern Ireland
have grouped together to showcase exactly what is on offer throughout
the rest of the year. The Adventureland weekend provides such
a great opportunity for us all to get outdoors and try out some
exciting new activities, for fabulous value for money.”
No experience is necessary for any of the
activities and participants will be looked after by fully qualified
instructors. To view all the activities available or book your
