Activities at Adventure Okehampton



Start to develop your Bushcraft skills, ready to go wilderness walking; we learn to light fires and build small shelters at both sites. At Bracken Tor if it's wet, we meet at our traditional roundhouse made from Hazel branches and thatched using traditional techniques, similar to Bronze Age roundhouses. Bushcraft is a very popular activity at the moment and is available for groups and family activity programmes. Although this activity is based outside we do have a purpose built roundhouse to shelter in if the weather deteriorates before the groups manage to build theirs! We also run a weekend long course on Bushcraft skills; some courses are aimed at adults only, whereas others are suitable for families. You learn to make shelters and get the basic skills of firelighting and water harvesting before heading off for a night on Dartmoor, making your own shelters, and sleeping in them.

Mountain Biking


Mountain biking is a physically demanding activity and does require a certain level of bike riding ability. There are some trails locally developed that cater for beginners through to advanced levels. Our activity session starts from the Youth Hostel at the Goods Shed. Once you have been assigned a Mountain Bike we give some basic skills training, where we also assess your riding ability, before setting out for the Mountain biking trails. We currently use tracks and trails that will allow you to develop your riding skills, negotiating some tight tracks and going over rough terrain.

Min-Age: 10 years (18 if unaccompanied)

Gorge Walking


Get wet and enjoy Devon's wild rivers with our activity of Gorge Scrambling. This is an exciting ascent of a Dartmoor river through pools and up waterfalls. Great for building confidence in the water and for team building. Gorge Scrambling is one of our most popular activities; it is a half-day session and is available for group bookings and on our family activity holidays.

Rock Climbing


We offer both rock and wall climbing activity sessions. Our own climbing wall provides a great start for anyone to learn the basics. We start with belaying, and move onto to climbing techniques including some low level traversing to build confidence. Our wall has three different sections, with varying degrees of severity including overhangs. The wall allows participants to grow in confidence, and a series of challenges can be introduced for more complex sessions. It is ideal for young climbers to start out as well as for group sessions. Rock Climbing activity sessions can take place at a number of venues on Dartmoor. We select venues that suit the group level. Rock climbing is most suited to slightly older groups as there is more of a challenge in identifying the routes and feeling for holds compared to tackling routes on the climbing wall. Climbing is available as half day activity session for groups and is also available on our families programme family activity breaks. We also offer weekend courses in our Discovery Breaks series. These courses provide an introduction to climbing, which will teach you the basic skills in climbing, including belaying and ropework, starting on our climbing wall, and then moving to various locations on Dartmoor.

Rock Climbing Discovery Breaks


An ideal way to safely learn all the basics of climbing and abseiling. Basic rope work and belaying, gear selection and use are all covered with plenty of time to put theory into practice. Climbing is as much about balance, flexibility and thought as pure strength and is a sport open to all. Okehampton is ideally situated on the edge of Dartmoor. Our local crag is within walking distance, there are the large granite Tors for which the moor is famous and North Devon with its extensive sea cliffs are only a short drive away. There is a great variety of climbing to suit all.
