About Badger Adventures
Badger Adventures is a family business based in the Lake District. Ritchie Evans, (Chief Badger) the driving force behind us, leads trips all over the world and here in the UK. He’s managed successful Duke of Edinburgh programmes, all over the UK
Ritchie has also lead successful trips over mountain ranges, across deserts, through jungles and to high altitude. Not only does he enjoy what he does but he loves it too! And he wants to share his passion of our planet with you by experiencing the outdoors for yourself. We want to ensure when you take on a Badger Adventure that you will be commencing on an adventure of a lifetime, with long lasting, inspiring memories. We can make this an even more unique journey by keeping group numbers low (if you choose) offering you a more intimate trip. While making all this happen we put procedures in place to maintain your safety and to preserve the environment.
So if you’re up for an adventure, and want the adventure brought out of you, let us tailor a trip to suit your needs.
Badger Adventures, pride ourselves on High Quality Programs, and believe in quality training, from good knowledgeable instructors, with good coaching, so that Badger Adventures are preventing situations rather trying to cure them. These all build into our thorough Safety Procedures, that Badger instructors adhere to, and groups get the maximum out of their experience with Badger adventures.
I am a full-time instructor living in the glorious Lake District with my husband, James and our looney dog Flint. I have walked in various places around the world and seen many beautiful locations but love living and working in the mountains of Snowdonia and the Lake District. I have been hillwalking all of my life thanks to my Mum & Dad who share a passion for the outdoors, my adventures in the Alps started when I was 6 months old and have continued ever since. There is nothing better than taking time to be in the mountains whether it be on a cold crisp snowy day or a beautiful sunny warm evening, on the bike or on foot. Come along on one of our adventures and have some laughs in the mountains and create fun memories in amazing places.
I was introduced to the great outdoors at an early age by an inspirational teacher called Colin Tucker, and it’s a passion that has stuck with me all my life. I have been involved with canoeing, skiing, climbing, sailing and mountaineering. My journey has taken me to many varied locations over the globe, but these
days I find myself enjoying more of the home-grown gems in the UK in areas such as North Wales, Scotland and the Lake District. So, armed with the zest for the outdoors, my ‘better half’ Ceri and I have moved lock stock and a happy dog called Flint to the Lake District to hopefully help others enjoy the great outdoors and find their own adventures.
Our ethos is to be environmentally and culturally conscious at all times. The standards, principles and responsibilities of all our instructors are to respect, protect and preserve our planet. We expect all our adventurers to abide to the same rules allowing us to take lifelong memories away with us but leaving only our footsteps behind.
