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!

GoTread is a not-for-profit social club. The local community is very important to us, as well as the protection of our beautiful countryside. We work with local businesses, source local produce and donate our profits to a different local charity each year in support of #maxtheweekend.

Find us on Facebook (@GoTread), Instagram (@gotread_uk) and Twitter (@GoTread_UK). I'll try to keep the meet-up as updated as possible but the best place to join and reserve your place is on the website www.gotread.co.uk.

Any questions drop me a line! Keep Adventuring Melsx
