Kit Parks is the brains and the voice behind Active Travel Adventures, an independent podcast about all things adventure vacationing - it's just a coincidence that the name she chose is so close to ours, honest! In each episode Kit interviews a traveller who has recently returned from a trip to a destination Kit's audience has informed her they're keen to learn about. These episodes paint a really clear picture of what it's like to travel to a particular destination, which operators are the leaders in that destination, and what you need to know that you hadn't even thought of! 

Kit has interviewed a handful of our recent guests about trips with Active Adventures, and so we've included those episodes below, for you to listen to and get a great idea of what it's like to travel on those particular trips with us. Enjoy!

Jackie Nourse, Jason Waitkins, and Monica Aranguren all discuss solo travel


“Yes, the Dolomiti landscape is spectacular and this trip brought me right in it! I loved our guides Richard and Paolo, who were highly knowledgeable, fun and exercise machines. The weather was perfect, the food delicious and plentiful, the lodging exceeded my expectations, the work outs were just right, and I had a lovely group with which to share this very memorable journey.”

Stan Jacobson talks with Kit about his 'Annapurna Sanctuary Trek' in the Himalayas

5 Stars x 3

“I rated this as 5 stars, "Excellent, the trip of a lifetime", but actually that is not totally true. It is actually 1 of 3 trips of a life time. The other two were the AA Jaguar Tour and the AA Condor tour. All three were outstanding and each qualified as a "trip of a lifetime". ”

Linda Cohen Dickens talks with Kit about her 'Tour du Mont Blanc' adventure

My Mont Blanc Circuit

“This trip not only provided an upfront tour of one of the most beautiful places in Europe,but with amazing guidance, it pushes you out of your comfort zone both physically and mentally. In addition you make new wonderful friends who encourage you along the way. Almost everyone on our trip had been on multiple Active Adventures before which shows what a wonderful company it is. We started planning our next trip before we flew home.”

Most awesome active adventure

“This trip was perfect, just the right amount of physical exertion, combined with comfortable lodgings and incredible food. Not to mention the mind-boggling scenery, incredible energy of the mountains, and the patience of the guide phillipo, who made it possible for first ever via ferrata climb!! Oh and I loved the bike ride too! Every thing was perfect. ”
