Featured 5 Exciting UK Adventures in 2022

From wilderness camps to source-to-sea expeditions there are some wonderful bucket list adventures to discover in the UK … or on a wild journey to or from its shores.

Here’s 5 of our favourites for you!

  1. Adventure Academy Wales – You’ve got two chances to experience the two-night Adventure Academy weekends in Wales this summer. The aim is to give you a taste of life on expedition from the kit and the food to the wild camping style and the physical challenge. These weekends are run by professional trip leaders, full of tales of adventure from their recent expedition exploits in countries from Sierra Leone to Burma, and from Sinai to Madagascar. The physical aims of the weekend are to trek to reach the summit of Pen y Fan, the highest peak in the Brecon Beacons National Park, and to packraft the picturesque waterways en route – plus one or two extra surprises.
  2. Set sail between Ullapool and Tenerife on a 19 day mile maker south towards the sunshine! Setting sail from Ullapool, Scotland to Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain in autumn time is always a challenge. The weather is changeable, with low pressure areas rolling in and every day getting colder. But as you make your way South you will forget your long johns and be in shorts as you moor in Tenerife.
  3. Packraft the River Tay from source to sea – Wild and remote, anyone who knows the the Scottish mountains well will have their own tales of true adventure. From the summit of Ben Lui, close to the west coast, you’ll navigate your way from the source of the River Tay to its tidal limit at Perth, close to the east coast.
  4. Claim the ultimate bragging rights when you hike the highest and toughest peaks in Snowdonia national park. The 14 Peaks is a famous 24 hour challenge that only the toughest and bravest undertake. This Snowdonia 14 peaks hiking adventure allows you to savour the journey a little more though, and even over 3 days this is no walk in the park. Experience the best hiking and scrambling in North Wales under the expert guidance of your professional, local mountaineering guides. An adventure like this is all about your personal experience, every step of the way.
  5. Experience some of the North Atlantic’s most beautiful and enchanting islands on a voyage to sail between Scotland and the Faroe Islands. Adventure sailing along the West Coast of Scotland to the Faroe Islands will be packed with wind-swept beaches, towering cliffs and remote island communities which are the hallmarks of this stunning route. There’s time to pull on your hiking boots and explore ashore, as well as a fantastic 48h offshore passage to the Faroes, so this is a great trip for those wanting to develop offshore sailing skills and also have a true adventure holiday.

…. and one for luck …

Sail Iceland to Scotland via the Faroes for awe inspiring ocean sailing and coastal exploration. This is an extraordinary route for any sailor that will take you from the snow-capped fjords of Iceland, the wild volcanic islands of the Faroes to the beautiful west coast of Scotland. The route has been planned with a mix of  short (2-3 day) offshore passages and coastal cruising, making it perfect for almost all sailors. During your sailing adventure you’ll be on board as guest crew with up to eight other sailors alongside two professionals on a 60ft blue water expedition yacht.
