Self Guided Walking Holidays & Cycling Holidays

Neil Lapping: Chief Adventure Officer

Areas of expertise: Delivering Adventure Excellence

I was driven to found Macs Adventure in 2003 by a passion for adventure and active travel. I firmly believe that the very best way to discover a country, its landscape, culture and people is under your own steam.

Whether it's walking, trekking, or biking you will discover insights and have experiences that others simply do not enjoy. It is this philosophy and quest for excellence that underpins every holiday that we offer.

I have travelled extensively in Southern and East Africa, Australasia, Europe and Asia and spend my time walking, climbing, mountain biking and kite-surfing in Scotland and around the world.

Some of my favourite trips include walking the West Highland Way (6 times), climbing Ben Nevis (100+ times), island hopping cycling in Scotland, trekking to Everest Base Camp, walking the Tour du Mont Blanc (and climbing to the top of Mont Blanc, climbing Cotopaxi in Ecuador, via ferrata in the Dolomites, walking the Tour of the Matterhorn, family walking in Zermatt and the val d'Anniviers, skiing in Zermatt, climbing Kilimanjaro, mountain biking the Scottish Coast to Coast and kitesurfing in Cape Town. Yes, adventure travel is a passion!
