However we don't just cater for groups. As a specialist activity breaks supplier we can accommodate anyone, whether it's your family summer holiday, a birthday celebration, or a romantic get away for your wedding anniversary.

The very BEST of Essential Adventure

Our business is underpinned by four fundamental areas, ensuring that we deliver the best experience for you.

  1. Booking Protection
    We are fully compliant with the package travel regulations. This means that when you book with us, your holiday/package is financially protected. We have a trust account in place, which complies with the regulations. All money paid to us is held in a separate account and is not released to us until prior to your event. Our trustee is a chartered accountant, who must authorise the release of funds. For more information on what this all means for you, see our terms and conditions, or please get in touch with any questions.
  2. Experience
    A track record counts for everything. Founded in 2005, at Essential Adventure we have been arranging activity holidays ever since and now boast a wealth of knowledge and experience in the travel industry. Our speciality lies in providing activity based breaks and holidays, but we can turn our hand to pretty much anything. The principles of our business lie in industry knowledge, event planning and delivery, so we’re ready to deliver exactly what you need!
  3. Service
    Our small team of expert event planners will ensure that your preparations are silky smooth. It can be a difficult, daunting job to be put in charge of the event planning. But don’t worry because that’s what we do best of all. We’ll guide you effortlessly through the whole process, generating inspirational ideas at the start, right through to managing every little detail. Basically, we’ll do all the donkey work and you get all the plaudits!
  4. Tailor Made Events
    Complete flexibility - expect to get an event like no other! The feedback we receive from other groups is simple. There is nobody else out there who offers quite as much choice. We will put together a completely bespoke event, with any combination of options you like – even if we don’t currently list things on the website. Our flexible, never say no approach is an extremely valuable tool. On the flip side, we can offer an off the shelf 2 night city break with an activity day and a night out.
