About Us


Welcome to TNR Outdoors, the North Wales-based adventure company founded by and run by experienced adventure instructors.

We founded TNR Outdoors back in 2015, and have been striving to bring excitement and adventure to everyone who has visited us at Mile End Mill ever since. Back when we started out, we were only providing small paddlesports courses. Now, we’ve grown to become one of the largest outdoor centres in the entire area, offering a wide variety of outdoor and indoor activities.

Everybody is welcome here at TNR Outdoors; we believe our facilities can make a great day out for absolutely anyone.

We feel as though our skilled, experienced and knowledgeable instructors can outmatch any other outdoor centre around. Many of us have learnt our trade travelling the world in areas like Southeast Asia – teaching, instructing and exploring all over the place. On top of this, our facility is entirely instructor-run. For us, this means that every decision we make is made with you, the adventurer, as well as our team, in mind.
