School Adventure Weeks and Outdoor Activities in the Lake District

If it’s a high intensity, action-packed and adrenaline filled fun in the most incredible and beautiful backdrop that you are after, then MSG Tours has the ideal solution when it comes to outdoor sport and adventure weeks.

In partnership with our good friends at BiG Adventure in the Coniston Area of the Lake District, we’re ready to provide your school with the ultimate learning outside the classroom experience.

Our team experienced the expertise, unrivalled safety and phenomenal array of activities first hand on an inspection trip to the ‘Lakes’.  With many overcoming their own fears of height and water, we can testify that this really is the real deal.

Where to stay in Coniston

Holly How YHA

The main hostel we use in Coniston is Holly How YHA that sleeps up to 45 people and provides a fully catered service.
We can cater for any size of group in either a youth hostel style accommodation or even under canvas in bell tents; our bell tent camping tends to be based at Coniston Sports and Social Club.

However, smaller and larger accommodation can be easily sourced and different budgets can be catered for.

When to visit Coniston

This trip is available to do at any time of year! However, Spring to Autumn is recommended for milder conditions for the water sports.
