want to come into the wild?
The British Adventure Collective was created to showcase the best of British Adventure. And now, you can get involved too...
Starting from June this year, we are offering unique outdoor experiences in the English Lake District once per month. We will be hosting demo weekends that provide an affordable way to sample a wide variety of outdoor activities in a relaxed and friendly environment. Having spent years in the Lakes, Aaron and Ed have used their countless days roaming the hills or paddling the rivers to put together a non-stop wild weekend designed to help you push your limits.
We'll take care of everything. All you need to do is book on, arrive on the Friday evening and we'll take care of the rest. Accommodation (bell tents), equipment and instruction is included, all you'll need to pay for is whatever you want to eat and drink. So do something different this summer and go into the wild with us....

Ed is our lead instructor and manages the trip operations side of things. Ed has experience in expedtions at the forefront of adventure sport in the UK and abroad. His can-do mentality is inspiring and he will make sure you push yourself to your limit.
He has instructed a wide variety of outdoor sports all over the world. Although, highly qualified and experienced in outdoor instruction, he doesn't take himself too seriously and we don't think you should either. The friendly and laid-back atmosphere is core to who we are at BAC. However, don't mistake this for a lack of drive - the weekends will mirror the passion and enthusiasm we have for outdoor sport and aim to leave you aching but satisfaied!
