Trips & Challenges

I am Charlie Wardle, 49 years old and now live close to Nottingham having previously lived near the North Wales Coast and not too far from the Snowdonia mountains! I love the outdoors and especially hiking, scrambling and climbing in any hills and mountains. Since 2008 I have organised, managed, led and guided over 10,000 people on hundreds of trips and challenges involving hills and mountains, mainly across the UK but also some overseas adventures too and I'm a qualified Mountain Leader (ML).

In addition, I write books, develop programs, deliver talks, run workshops and courses plus personally coach people on a wide range of Health & Wellbeing topics.

In November 2021 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Head & Neck cancer and have since had intensive radiotherapy & chemotherapy plus major surgery. I'm not as fit as I used to be as a result but still lead on most hikes and trips!

With the Outdoor Adventures & Challenges the aim is to offer a variety of different trips and experiences for people to join me, whether that’s an open group for anyone, a private group of friends or a corporate trip. I have rated the different options to show the ‘ease or difficulty’ level of the trip or challenge and there is a calendar of events to show what we offer. Additionally you can ask me to set up your own bespoke trip or challenge.

The main priority on any trip is safety but in addition I will try my best to make the experience friendly, fun, enjoyable and well organised. I am sure you will love any adventure you do with me and will want to do more and more!
