Edinburgh


Travelling to Edinburgh with your adventurous family? Need a break from castles and museums? Then look no further! Spend the day adventuring outside Edinburgh with Intrepidus Outdoors.

Edinburgh is a very popular destination. It has it all; culture, fine food, castles, great pubs and museums, as well as evening entertainment. However, another reason that is bringing more and more groups of families to Edinburgh, is its easy access to real outdoor experiences.  This is something that seperates Edinburgh from almost every other city in the UK. It has real adventurous activites on its doorstep.

An adventurous activity, such as canyoning, coasteering or mountain biking is the perfect outdoor experience to complement your trip to Edinburgh. You choose your adventure and we will do the rest! Intrepidus Outdoors offer the best outdoor adventure activities for families and young people in and around Edinburgh. Get in touch with us today to plan your action-packed day full of extreme fun and excitement.

Mission Statment :

To deliver the highest quality adventurous experiences to entertain, thrill and inspire.


Outdoor Activities Edinburgh & Scotland

Our values reflect those of a business started by a small group of rock climbers and mountain bikers. The experiences that we have had adventuring, and our passion for the outdoors, has led us to choose a lifestyle dedicated to sharing our love for the outdoors with others. The approach that we take to the experiences that we provide, and the business that we run, is that of sustainability, and an unapologetic quest for quality.

For us at Intrepidus Outdoors, we recognise that our experiences kayaking in clean rivers, surfing on unpolluted beaches and climbing frozen waterfalls have contributed to who we are as people. Therefore, protecting the planet so that the next generation of adventurers can have their own experiences, is hugely important for us. We believe that for people, communities and businesses to make the choice to minimise their impact on our planet, they must first value the planet that we have. We feel that the best way for people to value our blue planet, is to have first hand quality experiences in nature. They can then see the beauty of a forest, feel the power of an ocean and learn to love what is outside our towns and cities, so that they then fight to protect them. We strive to through the products that we deliver make a small difference to peoples understanding of the impact that they have on our world.

Our experiences adventuring have made us who we are and Intrepidus Outdoors is a reflection of us. We provide real adventurous experience that we hope you will cherish.
