The Natural Adventure Company

Self Guided Walking Holidays and Cycling Holidays

Why us

The Natural Adventure Company is dedicated to offering unforgettable self guided walking holidays that place our hikers 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 by a group of people (the co-founders being Peter Duncan and Alex Pazderski), who love hiking in the natural world and who have the same aims for their walking holidays that you do. We love to present great packages that take care of all the logistical details so that our hikers can relax and enjoy the freedom of their self-guided adventures.

… and we’ve got you covered…
