Why did you choose these activities?

We chose these activities to help galvanise and team build, along with developing individual all-round athletes and, of course, to have fun!

What will be your lasting memories of this tour?

My lasting memories of this tour will be playing rugby on amazing pitches in brilliant sunshine, rafting down the canoe World Cup venue and warm evenings outside the accommodation French-style!


Why did you choose Halsbury for this tour?

We chose Halsbury because everything has been excellent for us for the past 15 years and we especially love the personal touch. The answer is always 'yes, we can do that for you'!
