Happy New Year – Look After Yourself! Christmas is done and the New Year is upon us. So how was 2022 and what will 2023 bring for us all? like so many others that I’ve heard from, I am sat here trying to writing this after being completely wiped out with a bug over the Xmas period. To say “bug” is not really doing it justice, On the sickness scale its more like one up from man flu and that is saying something. During this period, I have also found myself rewriting this blog 4 or 5 times, These attempts

Everest Base Camp Trek and Back. Is the Everest Base Camp Trek and Back and easy hike? I had read and heard a lot of accounts and most said the trek is easy, but the altitude makes it difficult. I can see what they mean, but in my opinion the altitude is part of the trek so therefore it’s not easy. However, the trek is achievable for most hikers, who have a good level of walking fitness and strong sense of determination, because the trek will ask questions of you! The Planning Personally, I believe it’s good to take on

School Challenges One facet of our job that I really enjoy, is working with teenagers on what could be their first journey into the outdoor adventure world, watching them grow as they take on varying challenges the wild throws at them. There really is something about a challenge in the outdoors, which is a real leveler amongst teenagers. In today’s world we are all to use to having things instantly, at the touch of a button and if we do have to wait, we tend to get bored and move on to an easier or quicker path. The great outdoors

Tour de Shane 2022 Pembrokeshire Sportive Well after 3 years of planning and 2 years of deferrals, it was nice to get the Tour de Shane Pembrokeshire Sportive done. First of all, a massive thank you to all the competitors that stayed with us and turned up on Saturday to take part. The sun came out, the wind dropped, and conditions were near perfect. It was a pleasure to get to chat to so many of you and I thank you for your kind words and feedback, all of which made the wait and worry all worth it. A massive

The Blue Monster Swim 2022 Abereiddy Saturday 17th of September saw us host our end of season swim, The Blue Monster Swim at Abereiddy Bay. On the surface all looked well, but as you got about 500m offshore, the swell picked up, making it unadvisable to swim to the extremity of the bay! So we had to shorten the course and make it a two lap event, with an Aussie exit in-between laps. This gave us a 1.5mile course. Which in the conditions seemed plenty. The general feedback was – it was hard, but hard is good! It was a

Something a Bit Different Adventure Race Pembrokeshire Whilst sitting on the beach all summer long, watching our coasteerers and kayakers do their thing and constantly saying to our visitor friends, “The toilets are over there, yes the white building in the corner, look there, it’s the only building, no it’s not a house it’s the toilets” And then, in the quiet moments, reminiscing about the Whitesands Challenge and the good old days! It got me thinking!! What challenge can we do here at Abereiddy. Well Obviously, the Abereiddy Challenge! Now normally when we do such a thing, I’ll get a

Wellness and Resilience in the Outdoors The Covid years have seen more and more people heading for the outdoors, looking to escape the four walls that have been surrounding us physically and mentally. Last year we saw this first hand with the amount of staycation tourists flooding Pembrokeshire and the high demand for our activities such as Coasteering and Kayaking.  2022 has seen us at MUUK-Adventures, take this concept another step forward. We have used the experience and knowledge that we have, to put an educational package together to promote wellness and resilience in the Outdoors. We are delighted that

Ras Dewi Sant 2022 Well on the 3rd attempt we managed to get Ras Dewi Sant back to the St David’s Day weekend. With us having the usual 3 week lead up anxiety of playing Russian roulette with the West Wales storm season! We dodged a bullet this year and what a glorious day for running it was. A cold wind, not to be underestimated and a bit boggy in parts but lets not be too fussy. We do want to thank all of the runners for showing patience over the past few years, It’s been a difficult and frustrating
