Sport England has released its latest report on adult levels of activity for 2017/18 – and we completely agree that the Isle of Wight is one of the best places in the UK to get active!

What does ‘being active’ mean?

For many people, it may be taking the dog for a walk, using the stairs more or leaving the car at home whenever possible.

In this Active Lives Adult Survey (May 2017/18) report, it shows that people on the Isle of Wight are getting out for more than 150 minutes each week on average.

At Adventure Activities UK, we consider ourselves truly lucky to have our head office on the stunning Isle of Wight, which means being outdoors and active is part of the lifestyle of island living for most of us.

Just a job?

Our staff are not only highly qualified instructors, but they’re all really passionate about the activities we provide for all our customers – whether you’re a visitor to the island, coming along as a family or friends group, part of a school residential trip, or a young person coming along as part of our new Alternative Adventures for those who have individual needs.

We have team members who do loads of outdoor ‘stuff’ in their spare time, which just makes them even better at their jobs because it’s what we all love doing – being active and sharing our love of learning new skills and activities… outdoors!

Get active!

It’s well known that being active supports physical, mental and emotional wellbeing but it also strengthens social bonds, develops self confidence and gives people (you and us!) a greater sense of achievement.

This week we held an ‘Open Day’ for local Isle of Wight tourism focussed businesses. We thought this would be a great opportunity to get some of the best local businesses to come down, see what we do and make some new friends!

We put on a selection of activities throughout the day that businesses could sign up to at both out Tapnell Farm and Freshwater Bay sites (Archery, Axe Throwing, Mountain Boarding, Kayaking & MegaSUP!). Archie (our youngest team member) was also wonderful as our very own Barista!

The day was a great success, we had sign ups from over 20 island businesses ranging from local accommodation providers to cafes. Everyone had an awesome time and we’ve included a few snippets of feedback below.

Some of our lovely team!

We felt this was a great opportunity to get likeminded businesses together, have some fun and hopefully create some great partnerships going forward that will enable locals and visitors alike to make the most of the best IOW Experiences!


We will certainly be running an other event at some point in the future. If you would like to attend, or know someone who may, please register your interest here.

Below is a list of the great companies that came over and where you can find more about them:
