We live for adventure. There’s nowhere else we’d rather be than exploring somewhere new. In particular, we love the great outdoors. Our happy place is on a lake, up a mountain, by the ocean….anywhere and everywhere outdoors, with a preference for beyond the beaten path destinations. We travel in a DIY converted adventure van so even when not hiking, paddling, climbing or snowboarding, you’ll still find us outside.
This page is the gateway to all of our adventure related content from camping climbing to hiking and vanlife.
Adventure Can Be For Everyone
Before arriving in Canada back in 2011, we didn’t know gaiters from giardia. It’s been a steep learning curve with many firsts over the years (first overnight hike! learning to snowboard!). Some lessons have been harder while others were definitely much more fun.
Never would I have guessed five years ago that we would both become managers of an outdoor gear store and, eventually, full-time adventure travel bloggers. Our experience truly proves that outdoor adventure can be for everyone, you just need to embrace it!
The Great Stones Way may just be Britain’s answer to the Inca Trail. For what it lacks in altitude, the Great Stones Way more than makes up for it with mysterious ancient sites, idyllic thatched villages and wonderous panoramic countryside views.
Including eight lakes and around 55km of paddling, the Powell Forest Canoe Route is an exciting beyond the beaten path multi-day paddling adventure on the Sunshine Coast.
Breathtaking and mind-boggling beautiful from almost start to finish, the Maple Pass Loop trail in Washington has to be the most rewarding and satisfying 12km I have hiked anywhere.
With beautiful views, well-maintained facilities, a convenient location and just the right amount of challenge, the Sayward Canoe Circuit is a great choice for a paddling trip for novices and veterans alike. It’s a unique Vancouver Island paddling experience to rival other canoe trip experiences in British Columbia.
