This week our Expert Interview comes from Marc at Live-For-Today Activities. Known as ‘Yorkshire’s Best Adventure Company’, experiences range from gorge-walking to archery to quad-biking, all designed to make you feel alive!
1) Please explain your journey as ‘Live-For-Today Activities’ so far.
Live For Today was founded in 2011 by Marc Wise and Dan Miller, both of who have a huge amount of experience in the great outdoors and thought that things could be done a little differently and a little better.
The perks of our job are to be doing what we love everyday and always working with people who are at their happiest because they are doing something exciting that they have been waiting to do for a long time.
Everyone in the outdoors is great fun and each have their own unique character. You never find two climbers who are the same!
Every day brings a new challenge whether it is planning for a busy weekend or how we are gonna fit all this kit in one car…its all fun!!!
2) What has been the biggest or most memorable event you’ve provided?
There aren’t many because we are such a young company. We have been in local paper, radio etc and got shortlisted for the best small company of the year this year, unfortunately we failed to win but there is always next year. Also, we’ve had Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter come air rifle shooting.
3) Is there any inside information you can give us?
Our methods are secret but to be honest it is all focused around giving 100% customer service. Each person that contacts LFT gets called back each time by the same person and also gets to meet them on the day, this gives a real personal experience from booking to actually doing the activity. We don’t get 5 out of 5 on trip advisor for nothing
4) Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you’d like to tell us about?
Our plans have been set from the start and that is to become Yorkshires best adventure company, we’re not shy about expansion and when we have achieved this we will be venturing into other counties to duplicate what we hope would be a winning formula.
We have recently started an online shop that we hope to grow alongside our business, this sells our own merchandise along with other unique and funky products that we think people will love…check it out!!!
5) What would you say is your most frequently asked question?
When Aqua Zorbing do you use cold or warm water??? The answer is you will have to find out….

The instructor will briefly run through how to relocate yourself on the map using a compass and give some basics on map reading at the beginning of this Orienteering experience. However this isn't an in-depth course on these kind of skills, it's more about getting out there and trying out this exciting sport.
