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

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

This Family Escape is a fun two day adventure in Beijing’s Hills. Staying in camp-cabins (or tents!) at our favourite outdoor base, bigger kids and adults can face their fears on the spectacular Via Ferrata ‘cliff walk’, everyone can have a splash on the water obstacle course, and we will have plenty of fun and games for young and old alike.

We’ll 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 13th to Sunday June 14th 2020.
