If you’re looking for outdoor inspiration, then take a gander at Dave Hamilton’s latest book, Wild Ruins BC.
Now more than ever, women are breaking boundaries and records in the outdoors. Whether it’s completing previously-claimed ‘unclimbable’ routes, beating long-distance hiking records, or even just proving you’re never too old to pick up a sport, on 2019’s International Women’s Day I wanted to share with you all some of the best outdoor films with […]
Lapland is more than just Santa Claus’s hometown – it’s also a mecca for winter adventure sports, particularly ice climbing. Fresh from my trip with Bliss Adventure/Much Better Adventures, I discovered some of the freshest, powdery snow and excellent ice walls in Europe.

Arc’teryx kindly lent me their Beta AR hardshell jacket from their Gear Library for the weekend. The scheme enables customers to test premium Arc’teryx kit before purchasing, […]

Nothing too unrealistic, such as ‘I will become a millionaire by March’, but I like to set myself challenges and goals to strive towards throughout the year. Of course, 2018 was no different. This year, after watching Blue Planet and growing increasingly frustrated […]
The Tongariro Crossing is one of New Zealand’s designated Great Walks, and commonly listed as one of the ‘must-see’ destinations to visit in the North Island.
