A Tyrolean Traverse is a method of crossing rivers, gorges, valleys or other holes. It involves walking or sliding across fixed ropes and can be constructed to resemble either a bridge or a zip line.
Whether swinging over a river, deep gorge or steep wooded valley a tyrolean traverse is a great activity for all. Sit back and psyche up as we set up a crossing for you over one of our exciting locations or if you are feeling brave and want more of a challenge then have a go at building your own crossing!
Take the challenge with your group or family and engineer your own crossing. We provide you with a crossing point and a selection of ropes and you have to build your own crossing. Options include a singe rope ‘zip’, the ‘Postman’s Walk’ or the ‘Burma bridge’.
Whatever you choose to make, be confident as it will be fully safeguarded by our own safety rigging above.
For a great team building or competitive day out we can organise a challenge event where your group head out to locate the secret stashes of equipment hidden around the area or earn equipment by competing in a navigation challenge.
Once all the kit has been collected or earned your team must locate the meeting point at the ravine crossing and construct their own bridge. A great team building or family activity fully safeguarded by independent safety rigging from us.
Tyrolean activities work well on their own or as part of a longer package or day. Combine the Tyrolean Challenge with a half day rock climbing or abseiling for a great vertical day for families, clubs or just a group of mates wanting to try something new.
