How We Got Started
Up 4 Adventure UK is the creation of managing directors Jay and Mike. They first met whilst working for an outdoor centre on the Isle of Man and have been working closely together ever since. With a combined background of over 20 years’ experience working in the outdoors industry, they are ideally placed to offer safe and exciting outdoor adventures. They have led expeditions in Costa Rica, Oman, Sweden, Norway, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, France and of course, extensively throughout the UK.
Sharing a passion for the outdoors and adventurous expeditions Jay and Mike launched Up 4 Adventure UK with the hope of sharing their passion and knowledge on adventures that take people away from the ordinary and help them uncover their own love of the outdoors, all in a few days!
