We are Defined by our ‘9-to-5’
But what about the 5-to-9…?
Escape the city. Climb a hill, cook on a fire, sleep under the stars.

If you’re an individual, a family, or a bunch of friends, then I hope this page will teach you all you need to know to enjoy a microadventure without needing to pay for it!
After work your team will leave the office and head to the station as usual. But today is different. 40 minutes from central London you step off the train into an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You will not be told where you are going. But the air smells fresh and the mystery feels good. The only sound is birdsong and the laughter of our group. All around are fields and woods.
I will meet you and together we’ll climb a beautiful hill. The countryside drops away beneath you and flows all the way to the horizon. To your left you can still see Canary Wharf, an incongruous connection to the city and all that you have so easily escaped from for one night. We’ll choose a camping spot together – perhaps on this hill with a magnificent view for breakfast, or perhaps in this beautiful old woodland.
Everything is organised for you – the equipment, the logistics, the food and the beer! All you need to do is arrive with an open mind and a sense of humour.
Together we’ll gather wood, build a fire, share a local beer or a glass or two of wine, and settle down together to cook the best campfire stew you have ever eaten. We’ll talk, and laugh and stare into the fire or up at the stars.
You will be amazed that we are only 40 minutes from central London. Because you will feel that you are on a genuine adventure.
After a peaceful night’s sleep under the stars, you will be invigorated and filled with fresh air and adventure and new ideas. And after a bacon sandwich and a good campfire coffee you’ll be back in London in time for work, just like always. Except today will not feel “just like always”.
Microadventures encourage people to take practical steps to challenge themselves, improve their physical health, mental well-being, and all-important work/life balance.
5-to-9 thinking is an idea that applies to much more than just adventure’¦
Here is a taster film to give you an idea of what to expect. Please note – we don’t go to this precise hill, but it is similar countryside.
