Welcome to Aquila Outdoor Adventures

Adventure activities suited for a wide range of age groups and abilities set in the stunning location of Dartmoor National Park.

Our Outdoor Discovery Awards run out of Dartmoor Activity Centre & also out of Sid Vale Scout Centre in Sidmouth.

The Outdoor Discovery Award or ODA is ideal for people of all ages who wish to learn basic navigation skills at a gentle rate, encouraging them to gain and improve personal confidence to get out and get active.

The Awards has been developed to help group leaders introduce the basic elements of navigation to people who want to explore outside.

Now Offering: Mountain Training Hill Skills

The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking. No previous hill walking experience is required because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating, and understanding the equipment required, then the Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn.

We pride ourselves in giving everyone great experiences, adventures, fun and laughter.

Whether it’s at our venues in Dartmoor and East Devon, or bringing the adventure to you by coming to your meeting place, we can provide unique and awesome outdoor team challenges. These are bespoke and tailor-made to the age group, confidence and abilities of those that join us.

Why not come and join us for some great experiences and memories.
