A Four Day Weekend? Now There's A Reason To Celebrate!

Well, school's out, spring is here, and on top of all that, it's Easter this weekend!

The arrival of Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday means a four-day weekend for many of us, and we can't help but feel eggstremely eggcited about it! (Sorry, we couldn't resist).

Besides from eating enough chocolate to sink a small ship, what other Easter plans do you have? You need to get out there and celebrate that four-day weekend, it only comes once a year! If you're scratching your head for things to do, here are some suggestions:

Eat chocolate

This four-day weekend is the perfect opportunity to (over)indulge on chocolate. It's the only time (bar Christmas) when it's OK to gorge out on sweet treats any time of the day, so sub those scrambled eggs for chocolate eggs! (OK, maybe not...).

Burn it off

Chocolate cramps they're actually a thing. And you'll no doubt find that out this weekend. It's important that you balance your indulging with some healthy exercise this Easter. Why not head out for a few afternoon walks, or round-up the tribe for a bike ride or two?

Another fantastic way to burn off those surplus calories is by clambering up in the trees to take on one of our obstacle courses! Completing the course can burn up to 510 calories in women and 660 calories in men - that's the equivalent to a standard sized chocolate egg! And once you've tackled the course, you can cool off with a stroll around the forest, which looks particularly pretty in the springtime.

Go huntin'

If you've got kids to entertain this weekend, nothing beats a good ol' Easter egg hunt. You could hold one in your back garden, or join in with one of many public hunts taking place across the country. You're bound to have a cracking time! (Last one, we promise).

In fact, forests across the UK are holding their own Easter-themed events and activities this weekend, and in many of those forests you'll find one of our Go Ape courses! Get involved with an Easter Egg Hunt at Forest of Dean, or head out on an Easter Clue Trail with your family at Alice Holt.

Mini break

It's not too late to book a mini break. A four day weekend is the perfect opportunity to get away for a while with friends and family. How about renting a cottage by the sea for the weekend? Or, if the weather's particularly kind, why not organise a camping trip?


A four day weekend is the ideal time to have your next adventure! Go somewhere you've never been, or try something you've never tried before! You've got four whole days to get out there and live life adventurously so go for it!

Fancy winning yourself £1,200 worth of Mountain Warehouse kit? Well, just tell us who you'd love to celebrate adventurously with and this weekend just may end up being your best Easter yet!

So, we guess all that's left to say is, a very "Happy Easter" to you all!
