An IGO weekend is about reconnecting with nature
and spending time with like-minded people
The heart of an IGO weekend is the camp – a space of relaxation where you can wind down with mindful yoga, wild cooking, a photography workshop or bushcraft session with our qualified experts. The experiences offered in camp vary per location, so you could be ocean kayaking in Ireland and whisky tasting in Scotland. Have a look at the list below for a full breakdown of the experiences, workshops and training sessions offered in camp.
Camping is an important part of the weekend so we’ve put a lot of work into making sure your experience is the best it can be. We encourage participants to disconnect from phones and technology, encouraging everyone to meet new people and get back to basics.
Our weekend challenges are spent under canvas in spacious and comfortable bell tents. We believe that you should not forfeit a good night’s sleep when being in the outdoors and so our tents contain all the basics needed for a good night’s rest including mattresses, lanterns and rugs; you just need to bring your sleeping bag and pillow. Tents are unpowered, so leave your phone on airplane mode, save the battery for photos and remember to bring your book! Group bookings of 2, 3 and 4 people will have a private tent to themselves and solo challengers will be placed into single-sex tents with other adventurers. If you have any special requests then we’ll always do our best to accommodate so please get in touch!
On an IGO weekend, we are getting back to nature, and there is no better way to do that than with a bit of burn (stream) bathing! Eco-friendly soaps are provided by Soul Soaps for washing to not pollute the watercourse. Toilets are found near to camp.
Chef’s Ben and Zander Towill will be making sure you are well fed leading up to the challenge, celebrating the local, healthy ingredients and flavours. The challenge culminates in a celebration and IGO Feast on Saturday night! Zander loves nothing more than slow cooking meats and fish out in the elements so expect some good old fashioned fire BBQ and a bit of theatre. Again if you have any special dietary requests then please get in touch!
