It’s less than one year since we launched our adventure holidays and already we’re making a big impression! We’re absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted as finalists for 4 Welsh business awards so far. It’s fantastic to have recognition for all the hard work our team have been tirelessly putting in.

Rural Business Awards 2019

Rural business award finalists in Wales

The Rural Business Awards recently announced their Wales & Northern Ireland regional finalists and we were delighted that Adventure Tours UK was named in not one, not two but three categories:

Best Rural Start Up Business

Best Rural Tourism Business, and

Best Rural Recreational or Outdoor Pursuits Business

The aim of the RBAs is to give recognition to businesses operating right across the rural sector, acknowledging the breadth and depth of opportunity presented by the Great British countryside. The winners of the regional RBAs will be announced at the award ceremony held in Wrexham on 8th November. The winners from each region will be put forward for the national Rural Business Awards in February.

Wales StartUp Awards 2019

As if that wasn’t enough, Adventure Tours UK is also shortlisted as a finalist in the Wales StartUp Awards. Recognising the achievements of entrepreneurs who have spotted the opportunity and taken the risks to launch a new business, these awards focus exclusively on Welsh start-ups.

We have been nominated as a finalist in the Tourism & Leisure Start-up of the Year category. Winners of the Wales StartUp Awards will be announced at the awards ceremony, held in Cardiff on 20th September.
