Micro Adventures by Alastair Humphreys


Adventure – something that’s new and exhilarating, outside your comfort zone. Adventures change you and how you see the world, and all you need is an open mind, bags of enthusiasm and boundless curiosity.


So what’s a micro-adventure? It’s close to home, cheap, simple, short and 100% guaranteed to refresh your life. A micro-adventure takes the spirit of a big adventure and squeezes it into a day or even a few hours.


The point of a micro-adventure is that you don’t need lots of time and money to meet a new challenge. This practical guide is filled with ideas for micro-adventures – for you to experience on your own or with friends and family – and over 150 stunning photographs, plus tips and advice on safety and kit.


Whether it’s sleeping on a hilltop or going for a wild swim, cycling a lap of the Isle of Wight or walking home for Christmas, it’s time you discovered something new about yourself and the world outside your window. Adventure is everywhere, every day and it is up to us to find it.


Grand Adventures by Alastair Humphreys


So what’s a GRAND ADVENTURE – it is the most life-changing, career-enhancing, personality-forging, fun adventure of your life.


Following on from  Micro-adventures, in Grand Adventures Alastair Humphreys shines a spotlight on the real-life things that get in the way: stuff like time, money or your other commitments. Grand Adventures is also crammed with hard-won wisdom from people who have actually been there and done that: by boat and boot, car and kayak, bicycle and motorbike. People who had one epic trip then returned to normal life, or who got bitten so badly by the bug that they devoted their life to the pursuit of adventure. Young people, old people. Men, women. Mates, couples, families. Extraordinary, inspiring people. People like you.

Saving your pennies, overcoming inertia, generating momentum, getting out the front door: if you want it enough, you can do it. Tiny steps to a grand adventure.
