Adventure Northumberland provides the widest choice of outdoor adventure activities in Northumberland both land and water based. Based in Alnwick, North Northumberland, we are ideally placed between the stunning Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Northumberland National Park.

Northumberland is England’s most northern county, one of untold beauty and our activities ensure you get to experience the best the county has to offer in ways that others can’t provide. Imagine paddling along the coast, birds diving into the sea around you with Dunstanburgh Castle as a backdrop. Our other popular activities include coasteeringkayakingrock climbing and mountain biking or why not have your own adventure with our hire bikes and new for 2016 a fleet of Haibike electric Mountain Bikes.


The National Cycle Network (often known as the NCN) is a series of safe, traffic-free paths and quiet on-road cycling and walking routes that connect to every major town and city.

The Network passes within a mile of half of all UK homes and now stretches over 14,000 miles across the length and breadth of the UK. Almost 5 million people use the National Cycle Network, and despite its name, the Network isn’t just for cyclists, it’s also popular with walkers, joggers, wheelchair users and horse riders too.


Brigantes Walking & Cycling Holidays and Baggage Courier Service has been used and appreciated by hundreds of walkers and cyclists for many years, throughout the north of England – the ancient homeland of the Brigantes, the British tribes who occupied the north of England in Roman times.

We continue to pride ourselves on being known for our reliability, which is due to our team of locally based drivers having a thorough knowledge of the area in which they operate. We would be pleased to undertake your accommodation arrangements, and in addition, our baggage courier service provides the daily transportation of your baggage along your route from door-to-door, so that you will only need to carry a small bag containing your daily requisites. We can return you by minibus to an agreed railway/bus terminal, or to our free car park, in Kirkby Malham.

All the routes we arrange can be done at a pace to suit your needs in terms of time or walking or cycling ability, and you can be assured that your accommodation has been especially selected by us to ensure the highest quality within the price-range.
