Mini Bio

Regarding my adventure journey, some people say I’ve been lucky. But I say it’s about making my own luck in pursuit of adventure. Pursuing a professional career in engineering was a choice, but I always knew it was secondary to my passion to be outside exploring and learning new skills. I’d joke about returning to work on a Monday morning for a rest after the weekend’s activities. From an early age, I’d divert much-needed funds and time into adventures around caving, kayaking, cycling, mountaineering, skiing, flying, and travelling. As life moved on the adventures continued and widened into various corners of the world, with so many places and adventures still remaining.

Places to Play

The British Isles – almost anywhere where there’s water and rock.

Make Trip Private

Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
