The Shropshire Hills is a magical place, if you get lost there you’ll truly find yourself. 🙂

The Great Outsiders (that’s us) will provide all the (high quality) gear necessary; from sleeping bags to stoves, and tents to backpacks (Our secret weapon are our expensive, insanely comfortable sleeping pads.) We will also provide all your expedition food, including a hearty, hot meal at camp.
