Raft Building in the heart of the Peak District.

At a location close by to Derby and Nottingham, you’ll be split into teams, with each one being presented with all kinds of objects. A traditional team building activity, but with some fine tuning and the addition of some mad-cap elements it’s now also cracking fun for hen and stag dos.

We’re going to set you and your group the task of building your own water raft. You can name your creations (we’ve heard some shockers), and then climb aboard to set off on the maiden voyage. Can you and your team work together to build a raft that stands any chance at all of making it across the reservoir?

Will you float away to glory, or sink to raptures of laughter?

Your instructors are on hand to give guidance, but they’re not going to build those rafts for you. That’s down to you and your groups skills.

Once you manage to get on the water you’ll face an array of challenges whilst racing against the other team. If you’re looking for belly laughs, this is right up there with the best of them.

We honestly can’t stress enough just how funny it is to see the other team flailing about as their raft falls apart halfway across the reservoir. But keep an eye on your own raft, as you might be left eating humble pie, and getting a gob full of water – a team building activity at it’s finest.

You do need to be water confident to take part and enjoy it, although you don’t actually need to be able to swim, as buoyancy aids are provided. And our instructors are always close by on hand, although they spend half their time laughing at you. Good luck, you’re going to need it.

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben

I used HDK for my sisters hen do. If you want hassle free please and organisation, use Hard Days Knight was effortless . I just picked where and when and what activities we wanted and it was all organised for us. Very very helpful and accommodating couldn’t do enough, was a pleasure. Answered any questions kept in touch.
