Exploring England's Wild Places

We specialise in offering an inspiring range of small group and private adventure holidays, in the most beautiful and wild regions of England.

Our team of passionate local guides and expert trip creators work together to create truly unforgettable holidays in England. On our trips, we use our extensive local knowledge and passion for wild places to take you to the most beautiful regions of the country. Along the way, you’ll stay in hand-picked accommodations who pride themselves on outstanding customer service and fantastic local food.

We learnt many lessons on that first trip, which was driven by an overwhelming enthusiasm and passion for sharing our passion for the natural and cultural heritage of the UK. The most important lesson of all was that each and every trip – no matter how polished the arrangements – should carry the same unwavering commitment to delivering a truly amazing and memorable holiday experience.

Over the years, many things have changed but this commitment remains constant. In many ways, it is greater now than it was then, motivated daily by compelling stories of how our clients have had fantastic and, at times, transformative travel experiences.

We feel very fortunate to live and work in an amazing part of the world. We look forward with the same excitement as we did on that very first trip to welcoming you here and sharing our passion, knowledge and experience of one of the most beautiful regions of Europe.

Who We Are

Wilderness England was created by the same team behind the award-winning adventure travel company, Wilderness Scotland, founded in 2001 and recognised as Europe’s Number 1 Adventure Travel Company. With over 20 years of experience, you are assured of the commitment to providing you with a truly memorable holiday experience. More than 25,000 people have enjoyed travelling with us, and from 5,000+ independent reviews our trips average an industry leading 4.86 out of 5.  

Operating alongside Wilderness Scotland (and Wilderness Ireland too which was launched in 2014), Wilderness England uses the same formula to create innovative and unique experiences in the most beautiful regions of the country. From tackling the once-in-a-lifetime Coast to Coast hike across England to coasting on quiet country lanes in the Cotswolds, we offer experiences for every level of adventurer.
