    Mini Bio

    Settled now in Cumbria, England. The Lake District National Park is a place I love for work and play. Originally from Devon and brought up in Wiltshire I also spent time living in the Scottish Highlands, working for Outward Bound Loch Eil. So, Outdoor Education and personal development work is within my very core.

    Over my career I have worked with both adults and young people helping folks learn and grow in some amazing places; from Nepal and Peru to Norway and Poland.  In recent years I have guided a lot in Northern England and love enabling guests to get the very most out of their holiday.

    To balance my guiding I am also in the process of writing a novel and renovating my home – and on the odd spare moment I might just be found swimming in a lake or paddling my kayak.

    Place to Play

    Sea kayaking on the West Coast of Scotland – Particularly the Arisaig area.

    I’ve shaved my hair off twice – once for fun and once for charity.

    My office has been the great outdoors for 25 years. My background is within personal and professional development both in the UK and abroad – working with adults and children – both on land, water and longer expeditions.

    I now love guiding and facilitating amazing holidays for guests to enjoy.

    Biggest Adventure Read More

    I’m terms of outdoor adventures – probably a Sea Kayak trip From Fort William to the Isle of Skye – we were beset with hideous weather – but made it from Loch Eil to Oban, up the sound of Mull, around a very choppy Ardnamurchan and then along to Arisaig – a brief trip South due to a family bereavement before a final push to the Skye Bridge.

    It was initially intended as an even bigger trip (around NW Scotland) but sometimes life just has other ideas – I’m over the disappointment now – and can celebrate how far we did paddle. The biggest adventure of all . . . Life!!!

    Adventurer's Stories about Joanna

    Jo was an amazing and conscientious guide. Jo made a point of chatting and including everybody in the conversation. We had a small group and everyone got along so well. By the end of the trip I felt like I gained a few more friends!

    Jo was marvelous- seeking out hikes according to weather conditions and our stated objectives.

    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.
