About Contour Outdoor

Contour Outdoor specialises in delivering stimulating, high quality, value for money holidays and courses in the UK and abroad.  Our comprehensive range of activities has been developed to cater for the novice and experienced, young and old alike, with the aim of refining existing knowledge and skills, as well as helping you master new ones.  In the event of you not being able to find a course or holiday which meets your requirements we can tailor your own bespoke package to enable you, your family or group to gain the most of your time spent with us.


Walking & Navigation | Scrambling | Rock Climbing | Bike Packing | Bespoke Activity Package Design 

Contour runs the majority of its walking, navigation and cycling courses and holidays from the picturesque market town of Hay-on-Wye which affords easy access to the beautiful Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.  Hay also has the advantage of being within easy striking distance of some outstanding Wye Valley limestone and  South Wales sandstone climbing.  The town’s close proximity to the mountains and crags ensures that you devote more time to your chosen activity and less time travelling to the venue.  And when you’re relaxing, Hay-on-Wye has a wide selection of pubs, restaurants and shops which provide a great place to wind-down after an exhilarating day’s activity.

Our multi-pitch climbing & scrambling holidays and courses are run mainly in Snowdonia with the emphasis, once again, on staying as near to the crags as possible, maximising the time spent on the rock and minimising the travel.  Up to twice a year we head to the Isle of Skye to explore the Cuillins and stuuning coastline

Finally, Contour runs a number of annual expeditions, both home and abroad, which focus on walking, scrambling, rock climbing and bike packing

We believe that Contour’s approach to planning your personal experience is unique, and our preparation before, during and after ensures that the experience is tailored to your needs and not to ours.
