I’ve spent the last 30 years wild camping in the UK and France so after completing the 214 Wainwrights in the Lake District, it was time to become a Mountain Leader and create WildFire Expeditions to pass on everything I’ve learned. I take people out wild camping and run workshops in expedition survival and mountain navigation.

WildFire Expeditions

In 2015 I started wild camping in the mountains and with 100 logged mountain days, 38 mountain wild camps, 60 days taking groups out in the Lake District, Peak District and remote parts of Scotland, I took the mountain Leader assessment. WildFire Expeditions was created and since then I’ve led expeditions, run navigation workshops and taught lots of people the art of wild camping in tents, simple tarps, hand-made shelters in the woods and hammocks.

With Robustours, I also run the Mountain Leader Academy where we teach members all they need to know to become an MTA UK Mountain Leader. We currently have 5 members who we take on long distant hikes, challenge events, wild camping expeditions and navigation courses, which they assist on and lead.

Take a look in detail at what we can do for you…
