Staying active and socially engaged after injury is essential to continued health and well-being. Blesma’s comprehensive range of activities caters for every level and ability throughout the course of the year, from beginner to serious adventurer.
Whatever the event, Members help each other out, work together and share experiences. All the activities are free, you’ll just need to get to and from the meeting point. Blesma will also normally pay for accommodation the night before to allow you to travel at your own pace.
