About Us

What we stand for...

Original Wild was born out of a love for the outdoors. The feeling of being immersed in wild environments, reconnecting our souls to the elements and quenching our thirst for adventure.

From day one, the ethos of Original Wild has always been to introduce people to safe and sustainable adventure using only the best equipment available on the market. Being an active customer facing company, we also invest in people. Our instructors are like family and first and foremost – we look for people people. 

Here at Original Wild we know how much we rely on the planet to provide adventure, happiness, freedom and contentment too. That’s why we do what we can to be sustainable, economical and environmentally friendly in any way that we can.

Hill & Mountain Walking

What we offer…

Original Wild offers land and water-based adventure in and around the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath. Our beautiful city provides the perfect backdrop for paddle sports such as SUP and kayaking, whilst doubling up as a scenic maze for our land-based Code Break Bath adventure game.

Slightly further afield too we have the Cotswold Way, the Mendip and Quantock Hills, South Wales’ Brecon Beacons and Devon’s Dartmoor National Park. These epic landscapes are best explored by foot; taking nothing but pictures and leaving nothing but footprints.

Our mission is to safely open up these areas to as many people as possible and to enjoy nature as frequently as we can. Life can be stressful, exciting, enjoyable, unpredictable and scary; but most of all – it’s short. Too short to not embark on adventure. There’s so much to explore in the UK alone and it’s our job to make that adventure accessible. 


Who we are…

Original Wild consists of a core group of adventure lovers and planet-friendly paddlers. Hikers, surfers, climbers, rowers, walkers and runners. We are the people on the outside looking in. We have one eye on adventure irrespective of the season. To us there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad preparation.

Our team come from all walks of life with varying experiences and backgrounds. Different ages, genders, ambitions and visions but one thing draws us together – a passion for the outdoors.

Why we are…

We do what we do out of a genuine love for the outdoors. In a world that seems to be leaning more and more towards screens and technology, a brief respite in adventure can be enough to reset your mind and level your outlook on life.

The benefits of spending time outdoors are exponential. The wild winds, the stormy seas, the comforting embrace of rain and shine, the fresh air in your lungs, the bird song, the views, the people and the potential; it’s all there to be explored and it’s right on our doorstep.

Original Wild is your route to adventure.
