Wild Camping

My edition of the Oxford English Dictionary defines wild camping as sleeping under a basic shelter in a remote, untamed area. Back to basics.

Leaving ‘civilisation’ behind and hiking into the wilds of Scotland, Snowdonia or the Lake District into the evening, then pitching a tent, tarp or a simple bivi to sleep the night ‘away from it all’ is so freeing, stress-relieving and eye-opening. Your life will never be the same again.

I love wild camping, and as a Mountain Leader I can take you out for the evening or a couple of days on an expedition into the wild areas to experience living entirely off-grid, experiencing some quality time out from the stresses of life.

Learn something new

Think about why you’re here on this website. Maybe you’re here to learn some stuff, that’s fine. I have nearly 30 years of experience wild camping, and I’m happy to pass on my knowledge and share my experiences with you. I hope you benefit from reading my blogs; a comment might be nice.

Go ahead, get stuck in.

Come wild camping

Maybe you want to know whether wild camping is for you, perhaps you’re not sure yet. Squatting over a small hole in the ground is usually a barrier for someone to get over! BUT little things like this shouldn’t stand in the way of adventure all the good stuff there is to get when you take off into the unknown, untamed wilderness away from everything, self-sufficient and free.

I can take you out for just the evening for a Wild Camping Experience or a week on a real long expedition.

Included in your personalised outing, you’ll get the online Wild Camping Workshop that I’ve spent years putting together so you’ll be SO ready to sleep out in the wild.

We have some great wild camping events. Why not at least have a look at what you could be missing if you just leave now…
