Adventureline’s founder Martin Hunt was born in Dartmoor National Park in Devon and has always been a passionate explorer of both his local haunts and also much further afield. Skills of natural observation and a sense of adventure were handed down to him by his parents Harry and Cathie, who loved walking in Dartmoor National Park and along the spectacular Devon and Cornwall coasts. Over many years, Martin has acquired an immense knowledge of all things natural and some rather more esoteric. Melding Nature, History and Story Telling into an art, Martin was destined to become a nature guide and a conservationist.
Over the last three decades, Martin has been involved with a charity close to his heart – “Surfers Against Sewage” www.sas.org.uk (of which he is an honorary consultant). This organisation seeks to cleanse the environment of sewage and even more urgently, the modern curse of plastic; to preserve natural habitats and save unique sites from destruction, so that they may be appreciated by all and used for educational and leisure activities.
Martin’s aim has always been to enable as many people as possible to appreciate, love and protect the one and only home we all inhabit.
His balanced perception of “Life on Earth” has given him a purpose, for he realises just how delicate the dividing line between survival and extinction actually is. He may possess serious intent, but he deals with it lightly…
For 30 years now, Adventureline’s guided walking and exploration holidays have proved popular with adventurers of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. Informally, yet with skill and humour, Martin and his friends and colleagues reveal the complex relationships of landscapes, people and their history, flora and fauna in his beautiful home county of Cornwall (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and in many other enchanting environments in the UK and further abroad in Europe, N Africa, Asia – and even Iceland.
The results are unique walking holiday experiences, amongst excellent company – which refresh both body and mind.
Adventureline has been highly acclaimed on many travel programmes on British, American and German television, on radio and in newspapers and magazines worldwide. We always bring the local landscape alive, connecting you with all aspects of nature and wildlife, history, local cultures and traditions – and of course, all the unique regional gastronomic specialities, which form an integral part of all our tours.
