Why us

Why us

The Natural Adventure Company is dedicated to booking unforgettable self guided walking holidays and cycling holidays that place our walkers in the very heart of a diverse selection of outstanding natural environments and provide the opportunity to soak up the culture and history of the regions they visit.

Because we’ve got our feet firmly on the ground…

Our destination and route specialists are based in the region and we regularly enjoy the hikes ourselves, ensuring that our walkers have constant access to our unique insight on the best routes and accommodation, together with the most engaging natural, cultural and historical landmarks.

The Natural Adventure Company was formed in 2009 by Peter Duncan and Alex Pazderski, who love hiking in the natural world. We love to present great packages that take care of all the logistical details so that our walkers can relax and enjoy the freedom of their self guided adventures.

… and we’ve got you covered…

…all in a sustainable way…

As lovers of the natural world ourselves our aim is to operate in the most ecologically responsible manner possible. We are not a “mass market” operator. We choose to develop our holidays in a way that offers walkers the opportunity to enjoy a destination while leaving a lighter footprint on the planet. Our walking holidays are designed to contribute to the local and rural communities and economies that we visit. As most of our holidays are walking-based we aim to keep our operations as environmentally friendly as possible.

…so you won’t need to travel to the ends of the world…

Most of the countries where we operate are served by scheduled flights to and from the UK, including many by low-cost airlines.

…or spend every last penny.

We firmly believe that each country has a unique and largely undiscovered natural environment and we aim to identify it for you and combine it with excellent accommodation and cuisine at a competitive cost.
