Our ethos

I believe in the limitlessness of our human potential and the incredible strength, power and tenacity of women. I know that women are capable of more than they could ever imagine, and that believing it, makes it so. At Teachagirltofish we want to create an environment in which women can reconnect with nature and rekindle their sense of inner power so that they can step forward anywhere, confidently and without fear, to be the best they can be.

The highest physical and spiritual experiences of my life have always been in far flung beautiful places – the sheer exhilaration of swimming a flooding river, the heart stopping beauty of hiking across a mountain on a full moon night, watching the sun rise on the calm sea after a night paddle – in all that silence and beauty, a strong sense of being self-sufficient, strong, proud, and above all grateful to be in this beautiful world is always near.

It is that sweet feeling of health and well-being – when one lives so close to the earth, and the open air and the sea, that I want women to experience when they come on our trips – a sense of being wildly alive, of well-being, self-reliance and self- confidence, and a sense of gratitude for how amazing the world is and how privileged we are to be a part of it.

Our adventures are about accessing the extraordinary… and to do we must sometimes sacrifice the allure and sedations of comfort. On our hiking, biking and kayaking holidays we wild camp, because we want to strip away the things that remove us from having an exhilarating experience. If you have been on one of our holidays you will know that a gentle sea swim at dawn and brewing morning coffee over an open fire is an unbeatable way to start the day. What make our journeys different and special are that they will reconnect you with nature and gently tune your body to the rhythms of the sun rising and setting sun over the sea, to the rise and fall of the tides and the wax and wane of the moon. It is the best therapy in the world.

Teachagirltofish is about reawakening you to the wonder and joy of being alive, and to put the kind of smile on your face that keeps on beaming long after you have left our sunny shores. In a small way you leave the adventure changed, and we always hope for the better…

Hoping to meet you soon on one of our trips!
