Conquering The Mighty Jebel Toubkal In Winter

Attempting a climb of Mount Toubkal in Morocco is a challenge at the best of times, but scaling it in winter was another thing altogether. Conditions were atrocious on our climb, making it one of the most difficult and challenging climbs we’ve ever taken on.

Stranded In A Saharan Sandstorm

Our time in Morocco was full of adventure, and there were some nervous faces in our jeep when we were caught out in a Saharan sandstorm. Enveloped in the darkness, we switched the engine off and considered our options as the sand roared around us. Find out how we finally made it back to our camp!

Eating Sheep Head In The Sahara Desert, Morocco

Living with berbers in the Sahara desert was an incredible experience, watching as they went about their daily lives. As guests in their home, we were treated to a local delicacy on our last night, a freshly prepared sheep head, with all the trimmings. This was one of our biggest challenges!

Camel Trekking Under The Stars, India

A camel trek into the desert was always something we wanted to do, so we jumped at the chance in Northern India. What followed was a day of bumpy trekking, a night under the stars with only a blanket and a million beetles to keep us company!

Exploring Semuc Champey Caves By Candlelight, Guatemala

Peering into the darkness ahead of us, our guide handed us a candle each and ushered us forwards. Kitted out in our swimming costumes, we had been told to expect darkness, various obstacles to climb and swimming, welcome to candle lit caving, Guatemala style!

Deep Boarding In Bocas Del Toro, Panama

“If you want to go deeper, tilt the board downwards. If you want to go to the surface, tilt it upwards. And try not to let go!” Sage words of advice from our guide as we had our first taste of deep boarding off the coast of Bocas del Toro, Panama!

Sand Dune Surfing, Peru

Picture the scene: somewhere in the Peruvian desert, the blisteringly hot, small oasis town of Huacachina surrounded by huge sand dunes beckoned us to spend a few days. We had come to do two things: relax, and attempt some sand dune surfing!

Our Polar Plunge In Antarctica! [VIDEO]

‘This is totally stupid’ we thought to ourselves as we stood on the volcanic brown sand beach of deception island, our bare feet cold in the sand. Two minutes earlier, we’d made our decision, we were going to do the polar plunge, a breathtaking run into the icy waters of Antarctica!

Camping On Antarctica (Without A Tent!)

Our adventure to Antarctica is still one of our favourites, and an absolute highlight of our time there was spending a night camping on the white continent, without a tent! It was an unbelievable experience, made all the more exciting when we were woken by two whales, feeding in the middle of the night.
