Escape from Beijing Weekender

Who can believe we’ve been in virtual lockdown for almost 3 months! With Summer finally here, the “two sessions” about to be over, and quarantine restrictions finally starting to ease up, there’s no better time to get out to the hills!

With inter-provincial travel still somewhat restricted, and it is harder than ever to book that weekend escape yourself, let us take on the logistics, leaving you to care about on just having fun! Join us in Beijing’s Northern Hills, and feel safe in the knowledge 14 days of quarantine won’t await you on your return to the city!

Escape Beijing for a fun 2 days in Beijing’s Hills. Staying in camp-cabins (or tents!) at our favourite outdoor base, you’ll be able to face your fears on the spectacular Via Ferrata ‘cliff walk’, meet new friends, learn and laugh through our ‘pub’ quiz, soak up some nature and maybe even get in a run/hike!

We will organise your bus transfers, food, entry tickets, book the accommodation, and provide a heap of fun!

Our Overnight Beijing Escape will run on the weekend of:

 Saturday June 6th to Sunday June 7th 2020.
