Summer of Adventure
If you're looking for an adventure this summer then let us guide you. You could take on something wild and remote like the Cape Wrath Trail, Scottish and pointy like the Cuillin Ridge on Skye or something long and speedy like Cycling from London to Paris. If the GR20 (often described as the toughest trek in the world) is too tame for you then we urge you to check out AV1 and 2 in the Dolomites. We love finding new challenges, at any level, so have a good read and then get planning!
