With its searing daytime heat and cool nights, Georgia’s Svaneti region can be a finicky destination to pack for hiking adventures. Even during its peak season between the end of June until late September, travellers can experience roasting afternoon jaunts and evenings huddles with down jackets and mugs of tea, all in one day. If […]
Georgia’s section of the Transcaucasian Trail is a mesmerising combination of romantic mountain villages and wild landscapes filled with a rainbow of colours – and dotted with quaint, ancient churches that only increase the trail’s quixotic appeal. This is only improved with Georgia’s hearty cuisine, punchy coffee, and easy-drinking wine and beer to help fuel […]
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 […]

If you’re short on time but have a big adventurous spirit and energy, take on the challenging yet beautiful Boston Ridge Trail and Mount Becher Loop.
Rugged black rock coastline, pebbly beaches and an abundance of wildlife – there’s a good reason the Wild Pacific Trail is consistently voted one of the top attractions in Canada.
When searching for inspiration for weekend hikes, I frequently use the National Trust website. More than just country manors (although it is as easy to get lost in one of those houses as it is outdoors, am I right?) the National Trust website offers loads of walking route ideas ranging in length and ability, and […]
One of the most repeated pieces of advice I was given before starting the Kepler Track was to be prepared for all weather. In the mountains, the weather can change in an instant, and we experienced just that on the first night on the trek, at Luxmore Hut. Within 15 minutes of arriving back from […]
