Adventure challenges

Whether you jump out of a plane, trek through the Sahara desert, or cycle along some of the UK's most scenic routes, you can have the experience of a lifetime while making a difference in one of our adventure challenges.

Challenge yourself to jump from an aircraft at a whopping 13,000 feet and plunge down to earth at speeds of over 120mph, using our partner Skyline Events.

A Tandem skydive is the easiest and most popular of all skydives. It requires only 30 minutes of training before you then jump, strapped to your instructor! It is a truly unforgettable experience.
