What they specialise in

The Uncommon Adventures philosophy is to encourage positive wilderness experiences, which in turn lead to a personal investment in their survival. To help clients realize their dreams while cultivating the preservation of the world. They apply their craft through activities that are fun, self-propelled, and offer various degrees of physical challenge, from mild to wild. All experience levels are encouraged to join these trips - they enjoy sharing skills taught by the very best instructors available.

They do not strive to be a large tour company offering "cookie cutter" experiences to all corners of the world. Their focus is to offer excellence in a few very special locations that they know well, or they partner with local guides for the best local knowledge coupled with their own high standards. Uncommon Adventures does not offer "seen that done that" kinds of experiences, but rather programs that are instructional in nature. Clients will walk away with new skills.

Who they are for

"We live in a highly developed nation, with very specialized jobs, packed schedules and to-do lists that rival the roll in the bathroom. It is the beginning of the 21st century and we have never been more divorced from the planet that gives us life. I've developed these programs to address a screaming need for us all to get our hands dirty, our feet wet and breathe the musky aroma of earth back into our lungs. Put down that cell phone, go off-line, get out of the race...come outside and play" - Michael Gray, Director
