See and Do more

Whether you’re camping on your own or with a group, it’s always good to have an open mind and try something different. We asked our team of experts how you can find yourself having a new experience.

Ask a Local

Locals are a great source of information. When I'm paddling along, I always talk to the locals and find out new locations, things to see, and get information about the area. Local knowledge is powerful.

Go by the Book

I’ve never used a climbing app, but we always have guidebooks with us. Even if you have an idea of how to get somewhere, it's really unlikely you'll remember every single route on that cliff. What you can do is take photos of routes from guidebooks with your phone so you can have a digital version, and if you're doing a big route, it can take up less space.

Get off the Trail

Explore around your route – once I noticed a big blank space on the map near where I was paddling that turned out to be a massive, disused quarry. I got out and investigated and it was just incredible. I think it was a nature reserve; there was no one around, I don't know if I was actually allowed to be there!

Cook Real Food

By Kieran Creevy

Having a great meal outside can be transformative. A good meal at home or in a restaurant tastes brilliant. A simple sandwich on the side of a hill tastes like gourmet food. So if you can cook a really good meal outside, it stays with you for years and years.

Don’t Do It All

By Leo Thomas

A friend told me: “always leave something to come back for”. Not something material, but don't try to photograph everything while you're out there. Leave something that makes you want to return.

Forage Locally

Never assume that you have to eat everything that comes out of a packet. You can't carry eggs in a rucksack, but you're not usually stuck in the Arctic or 5,000 metres in the Himalayas. Even up there, you're still going through villages. Rather than buying seven packs of freeze-dried meals, put a little bit of money into the local economy and buy a half-dozen eggs from someone.
