One of the best things about living in Bath and especially about living near Bath Riverside are the additional events that get hosted by companies like Original Wild. As the weather has recently been quite warm it is good to see the river being utilised for more than just a view.
The river Avon in my opinion should be used much more than it actually is. There are trips up and down the river by boat which you can hop on by the weir but I have always thought it could be used more. With summer approaching it looks like it might just get that chance.
Who are Original Wild?
Original Wild are an adventure days company based in Bath providing the highest quality skills training and experiences across the UK and beyond. They have a fantastic team of experienced instructors with skills ranging from Mountaineering to Kayaking to rock climbing and more.
Spotted in the wild are a team of adventurers taking on a batch of enthusiastic explorers seeking fun and adventure. Do not worry about proceeding quietly they are not easily spooked and I am assured very unlikely to stampede.
What events are available?
I am glad you asked. No matter if you are looking for a corporate team building event, professional courses or need activities for a Hen or Stag do, Original Wild have something to keep you entertained. So choose an event type and then take a look at the different activities you could be doing outside in the sun (weather out of their control).
- Paddle Boarding
- Raft Building
- Code Breaking
- Rock Climbing and Abseiling
- Hill and Mountain Walking
If that list isn’t enough to convince you, take a look at the fun everyone is having over on Instagram. Paddle boarding looks like an activity Stags and Hens can do to fill a few hours floating on the river. A very nice way to relax and forget about all the stress and planning needed for a wedding. Wait you did remember to book the photographer right?
How much is it?
For one activity which is around 2 hours it’s just £39 per person. Want to do more than one activity then you can chose 2 for £52 per person which is about 4 hours of activities. If you are feeling really adventurous you can choose 3 activities for a full day of fun for just £65 per person. So no matter what your event or what you want to do check out Original Wild.
After you have explored the river Avon and return back to Bath Riverside why not enjoy a coffee or lunch at Coffee #1 which is just a few metres away on the ground floor of Royal View. There is plenty of seating inside and also some tables outside overlooking the river.
