Set in the heart of the beautiful Lake District, the Coniston Adventure Team Challenge offers a multi disciplined event. In teams of four - six you'll hike to the summit of Coniston Old Man 2,634 feet (803m), mountain bike through the forest of Grizedale and kayak a glorious course on Coniston Water. Breakfast, lunch and hot drinks are provided to all team members throughout the day and all teams have the opportunity to camp over the event weekend or book your own accommodation in the Lake District.

Bring your team together through this fantastic adventure challenge, starting with fundraising as a team at work, through to taking on this Lake District adventure challenge together in September. The ultimate teambuilding exercise for any work place. We have had teams from a variety of professions take part, including vets, doctors, firefighters, dog trainers, policemen, nurses, solicitors, bankers and customer service workers.

Whether you want a weekend of team building, the chance to meet new people and share similar experiences or just an excuse to have a weekend away in the stunning Lake District, Guide Dogs would love to see you at the 2017 Coniston Adventure Team Challenge!
