Much Better Adventurer, Yvonne Palme, scoped out our rafting, kayaking and hiking adventure in Albania and shared a few of her photos with us.
Over the last few weeks, a few things have happened here at HQ that have got us thinking about whether we could guarantee the quality of our trips or not. I thought I’d share that process with you.
Much Better Adventurer, Zoe Dutton, walks us through her weekend adventure sea kayaking and wild camping in Greece. She told us about singing songs over the campfire, exploring electric-blue caves and camping on the deserted islands of the Western Greek Ionian Coastline, mountains of Feta included.
Much Better Adventurer, Arlene Mansoor, volunteered to scope out our sea kayaking and wild camping trip in the Pakri Islands of Estonia. She comically talks us through her Baltic adventure, from navigational struggles and liberating sauna experiences to forgotten campfire conversations and sunset tractor rides.
We all know that running is good for you, both physically and mentally, and that marathons, fun runs, and everything in between, raise substantial amounts of money for amazing causes worldwide. They raise awareness, bring people together and inspire millions to slip into their running shoes, all whilst doing good things for others.
We caught up with Geordie Stewart, author of ‘In Search of Sisu: A Path to Contentment Via the Highest Point on Every Continent’. He opened up about being the youngest Brit to reach the ‘Seven Summits’, his battles with mental health and about the Finnish concept of ‘Sisu’.
Much Better Tester, Ryan Birnie, went to scope out our SUP trip on the Wild Ring of Kerry. He returned with a tan, a pocketful of photos and even some words to go with.

We met the President of the Albanian Rafting Federation on the banks of his beloved Osumi Canyons that he’s been fighting to protect.
We sat down with a 14-year-old from the banks of Albania’s Vjosa River to understand how the plans to dam it will impact her future and her village.
We caught up with our guide in Albania, Blerina Ago, about her vision for sustainable tourism and her mission to protect Europe’s last wild river.
I stumbled upon the Vjosa story a few months ago by chance. I’d been waxing lyrical to a journalist about how and why we believe adventure tourism could be a force for good.
I stumbled upon the Vjosa situation by chance. I’d been waxing lyrical to a journalist about how and how and why we believe adventure tourism can be a force for good. Indulging me, they mentioned a local rafting company in Albania that was fighting to block the construction of a dam on Europe’s last wild river in the hope of turning the whole river into a national park and grow adventure tourism along its banks.
We’re supporting local activists and adventure guides fighting to stop the crazy plans to dam the River Vjosa in Albania, the last free-flowing wild river in Europe. Join us.
Norway. If you had asked me when I was a kid what I thought Norway would be like, I imagined I would have said ‘that’s near where Santa Claus lives’. Little did I know that assumption would be proved very wrong. I travelled to Norway for the first time with Much Better Adventures.
