; Activities

If you are thinking about outdoor activities you may want to use a specialist provider rather than attempt to master rock climbing or kayaking techniques yourself.

Providers of adventure activities are required to hold a licence for some activities, and so you should check that the organisation you approach holds the appropriate licence.

Information Icon You can check by looking at the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority section of the Health and Safety Executive website. 

Some activities or organisations are exempt from holding a licence, so you may want to satisfy yourself that they have appropriate Health and Safety procedures in place.

For any activity you'll also need to think about the weather, any necessary safety equipment, other clothing needed and the level of mobility required from participants.
