Microadventures

 

A microadventure is an adventure that is short, simple, local, cheap – yet still fun, exciting, challenging, refreshing and rewarding.

As the world’s population becomes increasingly urbanised, busy, and stuck in front of a screen, microadventures offer a realistic escape to wilderness, simplicity and the great outdoors, without the need to ski to the South Pole or go live in a cabin in Patagonia.

The appeal of microadventures is that they make adventure accessible to people who may have very little outdoor experience.

I hope that this page will answer most of the common questions I get asked from people looking to go on their first microadventure. If you have any other suggestions for tips I should add to this page, please let me know.

These posts should be all you need to get off the sofa, out the front door, and up a hill for the night…

And, of course, I’d be delighted if you buy the Microadventures book.
