Bigger Isn't Always Better

Micro Adventures

The Term MicroAdventure…

was made common by British adventurer and author Alastair Humphreys and is defined as an overnight outdoor adventure that is “small and achievable, for normal people with real lives”.  (Wiki)

“Micro Adventures are adventures that are close to home, cheap, simple, short, and yet very effective.  A Micro Adventure has the spirit (and therefore the benefits) of a big adventure.

It’s just all condensed into a weekend away, or even a midweek escape from the office. Even people living in big cities are not very far away from small pockets of wilderness.”   – Alastair Humphreys
