About Aardvark

Started in 1996, Aardvark Endeavours are an outdoor pursuits and training provider based near Cheddar, Somerset. As well as our regular staff with specialist skills we use a lot of freelance instructors who are experts in their fields. This means we can bring to you the right person for the job with both the experience and knowledge so you get the best possible day. Our outdoor instructors are all first aid qualified, CRB checked and qualified in their chosen field of work. Why have a dog and bark yourself? We run most of our activities from various locations around Cheddar in Somerset. Here we have access to the beautiful countryside of the Mendip Hills including the caves and limestone rock faces for which the area is famous. We have portable equipment and meet you at the venue best suited for the activity, and can also bring activities to you, subject to suitable venues. We provide all protective equipment, use nationally qualified instructors, are fully insured and are licenced by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority for climbing, caving, mountaineering and watersports (AALA ref L6322/R1073).
