Outdoor Explore is turning four!

In August 2014 my years of kayaking experience, coaching, guiding meeting amazing people, being inspired by true legends I have tried to put together and Outdoor Explore was launched.

To inspire, all ages, all ability level explorers to go kayaking. Simple ‘mission’ realloluntey, but so worth it. Now, few years have gone and nearly 5000 people trusted us so far.

I am supported by an amazing, growing team and keep exploring not only by boats by also on foot and bike as well. In Scotland and beyond.

Still love it…

Kayaking in Perth

We have tried our best not only to take people out to see some amazing places, experience real Scotland, it’s nature and heritage. We also always care how we doing it – hence small groups, affecting the environment as little as possible, taking part in many conservation projects, volunteering and helping to promote Scotland as a great destination to others…

Working closely with Visit Scotland, Wild Scotland and many more business collaborations we share and care about the place we live, explore, admire.

So join us, Birthday Celebrations next Saturday, 11th of August, some cool, unique things to do:
