Escape from Beijing Weekender

Who can believe we’ve been in virtual lockdown for almost 3 months! Fortunately we’ve just received news that May Holiday weekend it is finally possible for us to get out of the city, and we want you to join us!

The new rules mean that it is possible to organise small scale tourism this coming weekend so long as it doesn’t leave the Jing-Jin-Ji region (Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei). Meaning we can take you to one of our favourite Northern Hills escapes and you won’t be thrown back into 14 days of quarantine when you get back. 🙂

Escape locked-down Beijing for a fun 2 days in Beijing’s Hills, staying in camp-cabins at our favourite outdoor base, you’ll be able to face your fears on the spectacular Via Ferrata ‘cliff walk’, socialise, meet new friends and learn how to make some great cocktails in our Think’n’Drink, 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. You just need to bring yourselves!
