What we're about

Welcome to Tuki Tiger Adventures!

Your portal for day hikes, trips and events, along with weekend getaways & overseas escapes.

A London based adventure group for moderate to challenging hikes, organised social activities and packaged trips across the UK and overseas.

We organise day, weekend and overseas excursions. An active group for anyone who likes hiking, wants to have fun improving their fitness, enjoys new experiences, appreciates visiting beautiful places and loves travel - with the optional benefit of meeting new people on exciting, bespoke designed, expertly guided adventures.

You will find a varied range of events to entice your lust for new thrills, from relaxing countryside walks, to army tough hikes designed to push participants to their physical limits, to fully organised adrenaline packed activities, to planned group tours to see cultural sites, to arranged social gatherings to expand your nocturnal bubble.

Ultimately we’re about embracing nature, escaping reality, seeking adventure - like-minded individuals, exploring and enjoying together! Real freedom lies in the wilderness, until you step into the unknown, you don’t know what you are made of.

Do you yearn for more?

WHO IS TUKI TIGER?

As the founder of Tuki Tiger Adventures, I am an experienced hiker, walk leader and qualified fitness instructor - I have had the good fortune to enjoy the outdoors and extensive travel during my life and would like to share this passion with you. My emphasis is very much on devising highly creative hiking trails and organising fun, well-structured packaged trips and social events, where prominence is placed on making new friends in a joyful and relaxed environment.

If you’re seeking to improve your general health, crave exciting, passionately designed, expertly guided moderate, strenuous and challenging hikes in the great outdoors, or simply desire to join thrilling, thoroughly researched and planned social excursions with lively people from a range of societies and countries, then a Tuki Tiger Adventures event is the one for you!

WHAT ADVENTURES DO WE ORGANISE?

The UK and the World at large has a plethora of hidden beauty and delightful treats. With the extensive knowledge garnered from decades of hiking and travel, it is the mission of Tuki Tiger Adventures to devise exciting days out and group trips for all to enjoy in a dynamic fun environment.

Day Hikes

We offer multiple day hikes of varying length and difficulty, ranging from moderate trails geared towards the majority with relatively easy-going terrain at a relaxed pace, to uniquely, very demanding days out with multiple ascents at a fast pace - very challenging and not for the faint hearted!

We visit locations across the whole of the East, South East and eastern edge of the South West, frequenting such beauty spots as the Chiltern Hills, High Weald, Kent Downs, South Downs, Surrey Hills and numerous coastal trails, brimming with serene peaceful countryside, challenging undulations, stunning flora and fauna, and nearly always accompanied by spectacular panoramic views; you decide what level of adventure you prefer!

Guests can expect a professionally organised and competently guided outdoor adventure. With extensive man hours, every single trail is thoroughly researched, pre-walked (recce) and custom designed to be as unique and creative as possible.

A hike grading system is used where TIGER PAWS are used to depict the nature of a day’s events. Please click on the link below for further info. It is VERY IMPORTANT you carefully understand the physical nature of each adventure to avoid disappointment as some hikes are for the strong and experienced only.

Day Trips

Work in progress, come back soon!

Weekend Escapes

We offer package getaways that usually involve 3-5 days of adventurous pursuits – sometimes with multiple hike options to choose from each day, possibly adrenaline packed activities, maybe an arranged tour to a site of interest, or even the occasional themed dinner for a fun-packed, social evening of entertainment.

Accommodation, occasionally travel and whatever form of entertainment planned – guided walks, a tour of a cave, kayaking down a river etc. - will always be included in the package price, or stated as an optional extra where applicable.

Our lodging could be as basic as bunk beds in a dorm room, to luxury hotel surroundings; price will reflect the quality of premises being used for the trip.

Tuki Tours

Our overseas escape packages. Work in progress, come back soon!

WHAT ABOUT SAFETY?

Safety is always our number one priority. Although we can never make the outdoor environment entirely safe, with our experience, training and meticulous planning we aim to minimise the risk.

Tuki Tiger Adventures activities are led by very experienced event leaders with an Outdoor Activity First Aid qualification or similar. Whilst for extended, multiple day adventures there is financial protection in accordance with the Package Travel Law 1992.

Generally, event numbers are restricted to ensure activities are managed in the most effective manner possible for maximum guest enrichment.
