Little Trekkers Ambassadors

We must have the best customers in the World. They have been telling us for years about all the great things they get out and do with their families and we thought it was about time the World knew about it. This is not a ‘Places to go with the kids’ resource in a traditional sense. There’s lots of good websites out there already that can tell you the opening times and entry costs into the many hundreds of attractions that there are across the country.

This is about real experiences, in real places, by real families who get out there in this magnificent country of ours and do stuff. Great stuff! Stuff that you will look back on and remember for the rest of your life. Places that you may never have thought to go, things that you may never have thought to do. Told by those who have been there and done it, and want to pass it on to inspire other families to do the same. These are our Little Trekkers Ambassadors. They lead the way ….

On your bike...

On your bike...

You could argue that the town we live in (Bourg d'Oisans) is not just the gateway to the Ecrins National Park, (an impressive enough claim to fame)..... but also the biggest cog in the world of road cycling, in, well, the world!

The most important camping trip of the year

The most important camping trip of the year

Undoubtedly we all have key dates and events and destinations in our outdoor adventure program (if you plan, like me, too much sometimes). For us THE key event of the year is the PMC - the pre-midge-camp. Or even more the L-PMC, the last-pre-midge-camp. You cannot set a date for it, because you do not know when the dreaded little monsters of the Highlands start to emerge, but from early spring onward you are acutely aware that you must not waste any opportunity for camping or you might find yourself one day with loads of itching regrets!

Going it alone

Going it alone

Dom has been super busy at work recently which has meant it’s just been me and the kids most weekends. To start off we played it safe, with some local dog walks and trips to all the lovely castles we have on our doorstop, but this didn’t really cut it with James and Sophie, they were soon yearning for something a little bit more exciting.

Cows, Hills & More Sunshine

Cows, Hills & More Sunshine

Continuing our half term in the Lake District after the bank holiday with friends we moved around quite a bit. Allonby for a coastal fix for both toddler and dog (pebble throwing and sea swimming), Whinlatter for some mountain biking (Jamie), Derwent Water for some road biking (me), Keswick for a quick walk up Latrigg for the views and Pooley Bridge for some more walking alongside water in a conveniently ‘on the way home’ location.

Let's go camping

Let's go camping

Camping is one of those things, like foreign holidays, skiing, kayaking and hiking, that some parents might find a bit daunting to try with young kids. To be honest, doing any of these things with kids takes a lot more effort than going without – but the rewards can be great.

Munro Bagging

James has been really getting into his walking recently and given the choice he’ll usually pick a day in the hills as his activity of choice. He has been steadily knocking off a few munro’s (though not quick enough for his liking!). Whilst getting out and doing the actual walking is pretty easy given he’s so keen, it’s the logistics of it all that seem to be the difficult part for us.
