The Adventure Company spreads some festive cheer with group discounts on alternative Christmas and New Year getaways

Do something different this Christmas and have the experience of a lifetime with The Adventure Company.

The festive season is a time to celebrate with family and friends, so this year The Adventure Company is offering a discount of £50 per person for groups of six or more* travelling together during Christmas and New Year.

The wide variety of winter trips available range from snow-based activities in the mountains of eastern European to tropical adventures in the jungles of Borneo, all of which will help groups end the year on a high with some truly unforgettable experiences and shared memories.

For those looking to get away but worried about the credit crunch, The Adventure Company’s discounts are sure to be a welcome Christmas bonus.
