    What we're about

    This is a group for adventurous nature lovers who enjoy being spontaneous and would like to organize short or long trips to visit some of the most beautiful places in the UK and beyond.

    This could be:
    A hiking weekend in a national park in Europe, like Poland's Bialowieza Forest or the Croatia National Park
    A three week trip volunteering with wildlife overseas, like dolphin watching or lion breeding
    An adventure sport break, like surfing, skiing or horse riding
    An overseas learning activity, like cooking classes in Italy or learning tango in Argentina
    Or just a day trip to an idyllic English village or the seaside

    The options are limitless, the only thing that is important is getting adventurers together who want to share these experiences and make some like-minded friends along the way.
