Who are Genuine Adventures

Started in 2021 Genuine Adventures has changed a lot. Staring out offering the new and exciting activities of tag archery an activity combining dodgeball and archery to make the ultimate combat activity. This took us all over the UK with partnerships with schools and companies like Go Ape.

In 2023 Genuine Adventures expanded to make the most of our home base, the Lake District, expanding to activities such as rock climbing, stand up paddleboarding and ghyll scrambling/gorge walking. This is also the start of our collaboration with Great Tower Scout Activity Centre offering our outdoor activities to visiting scout groups during the summer months.
