He is also able to offer rock climbing on single pitch crags around the UK. As a British Canoe Union coach he can teach and lead canoeing on lakes and rivers. Ian is a registered provider of the National Navigation Award Scheme, and Rescue Emergency Care (REC) first aid courses. As a registered Gold Duke of Edinburgh Assessor he can assess and supervise expeditions on foot and water. Ian is also passionate about the environment he works in and so teaches Leave No Trace outdoor ethics on all his days out.
His passion for the Outdoors finds him walking, climbing and canoeing around the UK and overseas. He regularly leads groups of young people and adults overseas to destinations such as the Alps, Morocco and Iceland. His qualifications and experience help him to provide you with some great adventures in the outdoors.
Melanie has lived in the Lake District and Cumbria for 20 years. She has raised her family here and so knows what makes a great day out for all the family. Her love for the area and its history and culture has led her to find many hidden treasures around the area. She is a qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guide for Cumbria and a Member of the Institute of Tourist Guides. Through living in and around the Lake District and her studies to become a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, Melanie is able to organise and guide a wide range of interesting and informative tours to suit all interests.
As a keen outdoor enthusiast she also helps run and support many of our outdoor adventures as well as offering some fantastic walking tours of her own. Melanie is keen to share her passion for the area and help you discover the hidden gems and places off the beaten track that your guide book might not tell you about.
Tay is our dog and can often be found out and about on one of our adventures or tours. He loves to spend time on the mountains or in a boat and is very friendly! So if you love dogs then let us know and he will be happy to come and join you on your next adventure with us!
Eden Outdoor Adventures also from time to time call upon the help of our friends to help deliver our activities. We choose these people for their qualifications and experience and their ability to provide you with the same high quality day out as we would ourselves. This way we are able to offer a wider range of dates or activities such as multi pitch climbing and scrambling as well as calling upon their expert local knowledge.
So let us give you a fantastic outdoor adventure or guided tour or perhaps help you learn a new skill? Whatever you choose, Eden Outdoor Adventures will provide that personal touch which makes our days out so special!
