What we're about

There are lots of things you'd love to do! And loads of places you'd love to see! But everything takes SO MUCH time to organize, is in the middle of nowhere and costs an arm-and-a-leg.... then this is the group for you.

We're GoTread and we're a new breed of adventure tours. We want everyone to be able to enjoy amazing adventures - as EASILY as possible - no matter what your budget is.

So we've created the UK's first Pay-What-You-Want adventure club!

How it works: Become a member, reserve your place and pay nothing upfront. After your tour is complete - YOU determine what the tour is worth. And then YOU choose the price you want to pay!

Our tour groups are small (no more than 8) with a relaxed and friendly vibe. They're run by our wonderful team of tour guides who love outdoor adventure and fill the tours with local knowledge, folklore, and history.

We go to National Parks and areas of beauty. Our adventures include hiking and caving, rock-climbing, kayaking, pony-trekking, bushcraft skills...you name it, we do it. And we're massive champions of everyone-can-give-anything-a-go - ALL OUR TOURS SUPPORT FIRST TIMERS :)

From those secret local beauty spots to the mainstream sights and attractions - we'll take you to places that we know you'll enjoy as much as we do!

We provide all transportation including pick-up and drop-off from a central train station, entrance and activity fees and snacks and local specialties. So all you need to do is enjoy your adventure!

Dorset Coasteering and Hiking Tour

Join us for an extreme coastal adventure this summer in the magnificent Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty!

Renowned for its stunning Jurassic coastline, this is a must-see trip to the first British natural World Heritage Site.

Learn about the geology and ecology of the dominating chalk landscape as you hike through ridges and valleys stretching along one of Britain’s finest coastlines.

Discover the prehistoric sites and native wildlife of the extensive Dorset landscape. With stunning views and amazing places to photograph, this tour showcases some of Dorset’s most iconic locations and most distinctive countryside.

The adventure continues with one of the most challenging and exciting ways to discover the secrets of the coast – coasteering!

This is a truly adrenaline-fuelled and physical adventure. You can expect plenty of scrambling over rocks and jumping off cliffs as we reach those hidden and most unreachable stretches of the Dorset coastline.

With an expert instructor, you’ll be swimming between the dramatic Dorset cliffs and exploring hidden sea caves in the most exhilarating coastal activity there is.

Coasteering is a great way to get up-close-and-personal with Dorset’s marine species including birds, crabs, fish and seagulls a-plenty as you navigate between the sea and coast on this unique adventure-trail.

Please note: You’ll need to be confident in the water able to swim 50m with basic-level fitness for climbing and pulling yourself into and out of the water for this tour.
