What we're about

Over the hills and far away, a million miles from London. Just anywhere away with you! I know we've got to get away, someplace where no one knows the name, we'll find something new! Just take me anywhere, take me anywhere, anywhere, anywhere away with you!

I am an individual with over two years leading experience of successful hikes, this incl. daily, weekends hikes and fortnightly expeditions. I enjoy beautiful British countryside walks, and my hikes are inspired by Christopher Somerville, Britain's most respected and prolific travel writer. Although, I create my own rutes from scratch too. My routes are range from 10-27miles in length, depends of the region.

My group is not for a profit, and half of the meetup fees are contributed to RSPCA, which I support since 2016, the rest covers my administration costs.

I like hike with an adventure and allow nature to be my music, but I always hike responsibly.
