Microadventures in the UK

Unique overnight trips and short expeditions in the U.K.
A short trip into the mountains of Snowdonia using waterproof bivvy bags instead of tents. Travelling light and finding hidden places to sleep high in the hills, far from anybody else.
Wales has hundreds of miles of spectacular coastline, and some of the hidden beaches and coves have to be seen to be believed. Sleep on a beach and watch the sun set.
Sleep under the canopy next to a campfire in North Wales and replace your TV and iPod with the flickering flames and the sounds of woodland creatures all around you.
The more luxurious way to travel through the mountains of Snowdonia – walk high, pitch your tent and explore the high places of North wales and beyond, with an experienced guide.
Short and long canoe adventures with experienced instructors across North Wales and beyond. Descend a river, paddle across gorges and travel along the waterways of the U.K.
Use our vast skill and experience to organise a bespoke microadventure for you, your friends and family anywhere in the U.K., no matter how big or small, or crazy!

What is a Microadventure?

A microadventure can be as big or as small as you want it to be. Alistair Humphreys, the renowned adventurer who coined the term says:

“Adventure is only a state of mind. Adventure is stretching yourself; mentally, physically or culturally. It is about doing what you do not normally do, pushing yourself hard and doing it to the best of your ability. And if that is true then adventure is all around us, at all times. Even during hard financial times such as these. Times, I believe, when getting out into the wild are more enjoyable, invigorating and important than ever.”

We are lucky to live in a diverse and beautiful landscape that is within easy access, no matter where you are in the U.K. You can escape to a nearby beach, mountain, forest or moor for an hour, or a day, or a night. By thinking outside of the box we have created for ourselves you can find adventure wherever you go, even if it is a short escape.
We have been having microadventures for more than a decade, as organised trips or private trips with clients from every background. You can read about some of our more recent microadventures here.
