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.

In this special bonus episode, Kit interviews Wendy van Lieshout, CEO of Active Adventures, about the merger with Austin Adventures.  Plus, we discuss travel today in the post vaccine world of covid. 

In addition to the merger, we discuss possible vaccine passports, why using a tour company may be more important than ever, and general insights about travel in this crazy new world.

The merger of these two great adventure travel companies creates some cool shared features:

  • Incredible local guides who have in-depth knowledge of every destination and years (if not decades) of experience 
  • Small group sizes - average of 12-18 travellers per trip with two guides.  
  • One-of-a-kind experiences, away from the crowds 
  • All-inclusive, multi-day, fully guided, multi-activity adventures in the most stunning adventure travel destinations around the world [now over 100!!!]
  • Authentic, personalized service - taking care of every detail, so guests can just relax and enjoy their holiday 
  • Hand-picked accommodation in amazing locations 
  • Great food is part of the adventure and experience 

“We were created in different countries, yet our companies have very similar stories. Each business is like a family – now we’ve just created one bigger family!” Dan Austin, Founder of US-based Austin Adventures
