Go Get Adventure's Founder

Go Get Adventure was founded by Rob Walker in 2010 after an idea he had while kayaking in the Lake District, UK.

Rob explains,

I was just walking back to the car after paddling a great river in the Lake District with a friend, when the idea came to me. I thought, “wouldn't it be great if all the best adventure activity providers could be found easily in one place”. After a quick look online to see if my idea already existed, I set to work designing this site and developing the idea.

Rob has been interested in a variety of outdoor activities from a young age, when he was involved with a Scout group in Somerset. He then studied Outdoor Education at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, during which time he also began his career working as an Outdoor Activity Instructor with Acorn Adventure. After College, Rob travelled to Australia where he spent his time surfing, kayaking and working as a kayaking guide and instructor.

After arriving back in the UK, he studied for a degree in Outdoor Leadership in the Lake District, where he also spent a lot of time white water kayaking, and rock climbing and building a real passion for the adventure sports.

After graduating, Rob worked at Low Mill Outdoor Centre for two and a half years, before going part time to develop Go Get Adventure.

Rob's idea has now grown into a dynamic and comprehensive web site, where Adventure Seekers can find locations and providers for their next adventure.

So why don't you - Go Get Adventure
