About us

Meet Peter and Alex. Co-founders and fine friends

The Natural Adventure Company was founded in the UK in 2009, by Peter Duncan, former UK Chief Scout and BBC Blue Peter presenter, and Alex Pazderski, an avid hiker and acclaimed expedition kayaker. Both natural adventurers and keen explorers of wild places and trails, remote communities and responsible tourism partners, Peter and Alex founded our company inspired by the responsible travel values they stand (walk and cycle) by. 

Facilitating independent adventures

The main aim of The Natural Adventure was, and still is to facilitate financially accessible walking or cycling holidays for people who want to delve a little deeper into nature and the local community, but who want some infrastructure along the way. As a result, the majority of our tours are self-guided, staying in small locally-owned accommodation, following a carefully crafted itinerary, benefiting from 24/7 local support, luggage transfers and top local tips for food and fun along the way. 

Our friends on the ground

Our customers can now choose from over 600 self-guided (and a few small group) walking and cycling holidays in over 50 countries. These adventures exist thanks to our destination and route specialists based in each region, all invaluable stakeholders in promoting responsible tourism, from Albania to Slovenia, Scotland to Poland. Our carefully researched and tested routes are regularly updated, as are our accommodations, and we have an ever-evolving holiday portfolio with new trip itineraries.
