Ant is one of the leading figures in the world of adventure travel and it’s his wealth of experience in this industry which helps set us apart from the also-rans.
Working with agencies and organisations all over the world, Ant is the go-to man when it comes to adventure training and travel.
A professional guide for over half of his lifetime on every continent and in some of the remotest regions on the planet, Ant has worked with governments, Olympic associations, television crews and emergency services as they all look to his expertise to drive their
own organisations forward.
Guiding you safely through the mountains and rivers is of paramount importance so it’s fair to say you’ll never be in safer hands.
Starting his career at the age of 18 as the youngest UK Senior Instructor in kayaking then going on to summit his first Himalayan peaks when he was 21, he has spent the last 25 years coaching everything from paddle sport to climbing, mountaineering to power boating, mountain biking to mountain boarding, right through to currently working as a rescue trainer to the UK emergency services. In fact he’s pretty much tried his hand at everything, diving, paragliding, parachuting, wakeboarding…..the list goes on.
However, all of this emanates from Anthony’s love of adventure, and it’s this passion which he passes on to all our travellers.
Indeed, he passes that energy and enthusiasm onto the rest of the team, who are all at the cutting edge of the adventure travel industry.
In recent years Ant has specialised in directing international training courses and programmes around the world. This includes The Outdoor Instructor Academy in the UK, International guide training in Nepal and he is the sole licensed training provider for Rescue 3 International in Bhutan. He is currently employed as a training consultant to tourism boards and travel operators and advises on adventure tourism and travel with a wealth of knowledge and experience as an operator, guide and trainer.
