    Like many others, my introduction to the outdoors was through the Scout movement. In my teens, I graduated to racing kayaks both at home and abroad. After university, I moved to Scotland and taught Outdoor Education in both schools and outdoor centres. Returning to England I ran a business designing, manufacturing and selling open canoes before becoming an academic working in education, environmental studies, sports science, and sports coaching studies.

    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.
