A Living Alive experience is unlike any other. An undefinable combination of a holiday, a workshop, a retreat, and an adventure – we offer a departure from mainstream adventure travel towards a more thoughtful outdoor experience.

Working with individuals, groups and organisations; Living Alive experiences combine our love for hiking, wild swimming, great food, campfires and sleeping out under the stars, with plenty of space for personal reflection, meaningful conversation, and time to take in the bigger picture.

We believe that quality time in wild places, sparked with some gentle facilitation, can be a power for good in the world.

Our commitment is to help people reconnect to what matters most, by crafting soulful experiences that make you feel clearer, connected and more alive.
