Recently returned from my second trip booked with TP, a surf and yoga adventure in Morocco! Had an amazing time, guides and food was excellent, went with a friend who I met on a previous trip, and also made many new friends! Love the community feel these adventures provide. Really looking forward to Trail Pursuit Cornwall this June !! 🏃🏻‍♀️🌊😁

Went on the Norway trip in August. Super well-organised and unique. Ed, who runs Trail Pursuit is great and very down to earth which adds to the enjoyment of the trip. The guide we had, David, was also amazing. The views were stunning (weather permitting) and it was all round, a great trip. I'd go on another trip in the future.

I took part in the Croatia multisport activity week with my husband and son (19) and daughter (21). The week was fantastic. Ed and Vana and the extra guides for kayaking were professional, friendly and very helpful. The variety of activities - kayaking, running, cycling, hiking - kept the week challenging and interesting. Croatia was beautiful and the other people on the trip made the whole week a really good bonding experience. Can't recommend enough.

Back in June 2022 I had the privilege of being part of the first 'team' to live the Norway experience. Having found the courage to travel by myself, I found it utterly fantastic from start to finish. Yes, it had its moments of challenge but this helped to make it such an amazing experience. Such a stunning location and well thought out loop above/within the majestic fjord. One of the best experiences I've ever had! As for the 'team' they were all such amazing people and it was a pleasure to share the experience with them, thank you!
