What we're about

We love the outdoors and we love walking, hiking and adventures in it. We however do not want to walk 20 miles a day, over rocks and streams, in the depth of winter or in the driving rain. We would like to be active but do it at an easy to moderate pace. This is not a group for the hardcore outdoors folk. This is also not a group for outdoors people who want to backpack and live in youth hostels when away on trips. This group will do all these activities and trips but at a slightly slower pace and with a slightly higher quality of lodging and boarding than backpacks/sleeping in bags on the floor or in bunk beds. We will arrange social walks in London and day trips away every few weeks and monthly overnight adventure trips away. Does this describe you? Join us!
