Welcome to the Active Travel Adventures podcast where you'll find inspiration to lead a bigger life through adventure travel.

On each show we explore exciting multi-day active vacations from around the world where you have to MOVE!  You'll have to hike, bike, paddle, horseback ride (sometimes in combination) to propel yourself to the next destination.

If you're tired of typical vacations and are looking for a more authentic experience by exploring the landscapes and meeting the locals on your vacation, then this is your podcast!

All adventures will be doable for someone reasonably fit (I'm a 58 year old woman and I have to be able to do them).

Be sure to visit to see photos and get more details, plus you can download the FREE Travel Planners for each destination!  These handy summaries summarize the tips and provide all sorts of helpful links to help you plan your trip.  You get them automatically if you subscribe to the newsletter.

The best way to see Scotland’s bucolic countryside is on foot! 

Savor Scotland’s most popular long distance trail, the West Highland Way!  This 96 mile trail starts in Glasgow and finishes in Scotland’s adventure capital, Fort William. Kit even walked the Kelvin Way from Glasgow to the start of the trail in Milngavie.

Stay in medieval villages each night and walk the rambling countryside trail, often along Loch Lommond, during the day.  It’s magical AND doable for any fit person!  Walking holidays allow for a more immersive experience plus they are often less expensive than traditional vacations.

Learn how to hike it, what to expect and how to plan your adventure.

You can listen to the podcast episode, see photos and get more information about walking the West Highland Way at the website and even download a FREE Travel Planner!
