Sophie BALLAGH

Sophie is an Outdoor Professional hailing from the land of adventure itself - New Zealand. She has been engaged in key roles in designing and implementing outdoor education programmes and in preparing for and leading wilderness expeditions. These have seen her exploring an array of settings across the globe, from the rugged Svalbard in the North, to the jungles of Thailand in the East, to the wild coasts of British Columbia in the West, to the frigid Antarctica in the South With a Diploma in Outdoor Leadership and Management as a solid grounding, Sophie has a vast set of outdoor-related skills that allows her to confidently, safely and efficiently guide in a range of pursuits and across a range of environments. She has a vibrant outlook on life that is infectious and lends itself with her natural instincts to teach and share knowledge. She is never one to say no to a piece (or the whole block) of chocolate, is as happy camped on a rough ledge on a mountain-top as in a proper bed ("Isn’t that a 'proper bed'?" she would ask) and is disdainful of rubbery mushrooms and pesky possums.

Ewan BLYTH

Born in Tasmania, Ewan spent his childhood exploring the vast wilderness of his home and instilling in him a deep and primordial love of the outdoors. Not content with his first career as a Design Consultant following completion of his Honours Degree in Civil Engineering, Ewan has spent the last decade working as an Outdoor Professional, travelling to the far reaches of the planet to ply his skills. With experience from the tropics to the polar regions and much in between, Ewan has a depth of experience in roles ranging from Sea Kayak Instructor to Small Boat Captain to General Naturalist, Lecturer, Trainer and Assessor to name but a few. He has a profound liking for spreadsheets, hearty servings of spicy dahl and very good wine (generally well beyond his budget) but attempts at all costs to evade noisy cities, reality tv and greasy food from grubby bain-maires.

TOGETHER

Together, we bring a true passion for exploration, self-discovery and living a life that embraces all that we have and all that we are.Our strengths in life and in the outdoors are highly complementary and have seen us build a partnership of solid technical skills and knowledge, sound risk management and calculated decision-making. Through these shared and combined values, we have worked together and have tackled numerous adventures together in many corners of the globe, always as a solid team, in even the most demanding of scenarios.
Let us share Nature’s gifts and our passion for them with you…

Your's in adventure!
