Adventure Reviews

5.00 based on 1 review
25th February 2017

Having just returned from a winter multi activity holiday I feel I must write the first review. Being single it is difficult to do this kind of thing on your own but I have found the company who can deliver. It was made so easy for me. I was left to my own devices when I wanted to do so and the events/ideas were there when I wanted them. It has caputured the way people want to spend their holidays – tailored to exactly what they want, with enough adventure to add a bit of fright/thrill/fun but not too much to send you packing up and going home! I partook of the XC skiing and snowshoeing the first day, found some breathtaking (and I mean breathtaking!) walks the others days and did an activity which has been on my bucket list – husky dog ride. Everyone should do that once in their lives! I could have also done the canyoning and mountain biking but couldn’t cram it all in. It’s a hidden gem and it really has got everything without the crowds to spoil the views. Highly recommend Adventure Creators to everyone with a spirit of adventure!!
