Here’s what others are saying:

We’ve worked with Original Outdoors on several occasions. Richard and his team have ran a bushcraft days and night navigation courses for our customers that we outstanding (we’ve got the videos to prove it). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and took lots away from the training.

The depth of knowledge possessed by Original Outdoor instructors is impressive. It’s very obvious that their not running courses for the sake of running courses, but using these opportunities to pass on a wealth of knowledge and experience gained from spending time in the outdoors.

In terms of future events, Richard and I have several irons in the fire; but I’m particularly excited about a Training Weekend that we’ve discussed recently…

Thanks to Richard and his team we were given a great day out, with the knowledge that we have an expert team with us should anything have gone wrong. From the initial discussions to the day itself Richard was helpful and made sure that we knew the dangers of what we were doing, made sure we brought the right equipment with us and gave us the most tiring but fantastic day, so good in fact while I was walking back down Snowdon with Richard we were planning our next 2-3 adventures.

Thank you to all involved it was brilliant and I would recommend Original Outdoors to anyone at a heartbeat.

On behalf of Tata Steel, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your time and effort in organising the outdoor activities for our recent team building workshop.

The outdoor team building exercise was a complete success with everyone actively participating, especially in the first aid part of the session.

We would certainly have no hesitation in using Original Outdoors for any future events.

– Terry Goodwin
Director of Strategic Marketing

Sorry to say this again but thanks you made that day for us.

Thank you so much for your input today. It added a really good new dimension to our usual activities and all the feedback was good!

– Margaret
Snowdonia Society

I would like to say a big thank you to yourselves for helping us make Saturday a really enjoyable day and especially Mark & Andy the guides as they were brilliant

I believe everyone enjoyed the walk up and down Snowdonia especially as 9 of them had never done it before, it was an experience to remember with plenty of memories and we have helped raise over £1,500.00 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research doing the walk.

So again i would like to say a big big thank you for helping me make this happen

– Ian
Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research

Just a quick email to say a big thank you for your help and guidance over the weekend. I met the walkers at Brecon and was filled in on the day’s events and weather conditions!!!!!

Gofal, United Welsh and Capita would like to thank Richard, Dave and Mark from Original Outdoors who guided the walkers on the Snowdon and Cadair Idris legs of the challenge.

The course as been the best course I’ve attended, all hands on and realistic scenarios.
Wayne delivered the course well and his friendly, laid back and welcoming manner makes everyone feel relaxed and welcomed.
I’d Highly recommend anyone who’s wanting to gain first aid qualifications to attend one of Wayne courses, I for sure will be attending more of his courses.

Same goes for Original Outdoors, Very welcoming and friendly, also making sure you are ok and helping you out
I will be attending more course with Original Outdoors and Blackhill Training.

Hi Richard,
Just wanted to say how much Jon & I enjoyed the basic navigation course, despite the chilly and soggy Saturday weather! The content and pace were just right and the delivery was pitched very well – knowledgeable without being a lecture, and great fun overall. We came away having learned exactly what we wanted to, and eager to put it into practice.

– Karen and Jon, Basic Navigation Course

We’ve been working with the team at Original Outdoors for a couple of years and will continue to do so. As a Union Learning Rep we try to source companies who provide training and experiences which leave the participants with something of value and Original Outdoors certainly do that.
We have taken part in Foraging days, Bush craft, Navigation and Outdoor First Aid Courses and the feedback from the participants has always been excellent…….which is why we keep coming back and keep recommending Original Outdoors to others.

Unite Wales Union Learning Rep
