Part-time wilderness guide, part-time conservation consultant, part-time sailor and diver. Full-time nature lover!
Despite living only ten miles from the southernmost point of mainland Great Britain, Chris doesn’t need an excuse to get up north to the mountains. His favourite spots are the Western Highlands (Torridon and Ardnamurchan), and pretty much all of England’s Lake District. When not guiding, Chris has a small environmental consultancy and works with NGOs such as WWF to tackle the challenge of deforestation in South America and Asia.
My five favourite places in the world are (probably):
I once shared a urinal with Michael Palin, a dance-floor with Jerry Springer, and talked the President of Ghana to sleep.
Probably five months in South America last year (2018) including three months on the epic Carretera Austral – one of the last great undeveloped road routes of the world. An incredible trip through mountains, glaciers, volcanos, landslides, forests, lakes and even deserts.
Deforestation. And more positively, reforestation!
I wrote part of The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity Report (the ‘TEEB’ report) which calculated that loss of biodiversity is costing the world $4.5 trillion per year, every year.

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.
