Bristol’s largest and most active outdoors society.



We are UBES: the largest, most active, and possibly the best outdoors society at the University of Bristol.

We are passionate about outdoor adventures, and endlessly enthusiastic to get as many people involved as we can. Whatever your experience, or none, it would great to meet you.

We cater for anyone with an interest in the outdoors by running regular weekend walking trips, giving free climbing instruction, organising adventurous summer trips abroad, and offering subsidised training opportunities.

When you aren’t on the mountain, we have regular socials as well as development opportunities such as first aid and navigation training.

We aim to develop our members’ passion for the outdoors and support them as safe and independent mountaineers whilst, of course, providing maximum fun!
