About Us

A little about how our adventure began…

Welcome to Air Trail Tees Barrage. If you love the great outdoors and all things adventurous, then get comfy and listen up, this is for you.

Standing tall on the banks of the River Tees and just a stone’s throw from the historic market town of Stockton-on-Tees, Tees Barrage boasts an impressive assortment of adventurous activities suitable for all ages and abilities and Air Trail is the newest addition to this exciting adventure hub. Situated on a small peninsula dividing the river, Air Trail Tees Barrage opened its gates in early 2016 and is the BIGGEST of its kind in the UK, reaching an impressive 18 meters – it’s the same height as four double decker buses! Incorporated, are two zip lines (rails) that whizz explorers the full length of the structure, the only ones in the world outside of the US. Plus, there’s also Air Tykes, a smaller version of Air Trail that allows mini explorers who aren’t tall enough to have their own adventure.


Tees Barrage is also home to an International standard white water centre and is a world class facility offering exhilarating outdoor pursuits such as white water rafting, white water kayaking and powerboating, as well as sailing, canoeing and bell boating for those who prefer more tranquil activities. If you are looking to make it a full day of thrill-seeking, this is the perfect setting.

Tees Barrage welcomes a unique mix of adventurers from cyclists, walkers and runners to photographers and wildlife enthusiasts and is a fantastic asset to our area. It’s all about good old fashioned fun so bring your family down and see what adventures you could create!

Tees Barrage International White Water Centre and Air Trail Tees Barrage are managed by Tees Active Ltd, who also manage GoClimb, and Forum Ice Arena among other leisure activities in Stockton-On-Tees. Sky Trail™ is a high ropes structure from America and is branded as Air Trail Tees Barrage.
