Meadow hikes and waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales

We arrived in the tiny village of Muker ready to do a hike in Swaledale, a gorgeous valley. The village, like all of them in the Yorkshire Dales was picture perfect; every building looked the same, built with grey stones and decorated with pretty flower boxes. Before we started we headed to the toilets but…

Secret infinity pools, boating and castles in Northern Wales

Social media has been smothered with videos of people swimming in a ‘secret infinity pool’ in Snowdonia. The location is kept a secret but it’s easy enough to find if you watch the videos and scan google earth. Seeing as we swim in wild locations pretty much every day we figured we’d see what all…

Hiking and wild swimming in Dartmoor National Park | Cornwall

Our first stop in Dartmoor National Park was a hike to Black Tor and the Meldon Reservoir. The weather was very iffy and it didn’t take long for the rain to catch up with us. We hid under some trees but the rain was so heavy we were hardly getting any protection. We decided that…

It was all going well until we were confronted with a rather intimidating section where the road suddenly headed up the side of a mountain via a couple of switchbacks. So we slowly proceeded up…

The High One | Mount Denali 

The Parks Highway headed through dense forest and our mountain vistas vanished. We were surrounded by trees and lakes, smack bang in Alaska’s lake country. Some lakes were clear and inviting while others looked like mother natures tea; heavily brewed with fallen leaves. We checked out the tourist village of Talkeetna where the main road…

Swimming with dolphins in the wild | Hawaii

There’s something very special about swimming with dolphins in the wild; they decide if they swim with you, they’re not kept in a horrible glass tank and passed from one tourists to another or forced to perform tricks for food. In the wild they come and go as they please, they hunt their own food…
