Life at our all new Skypark Macs HQ

7 Mar , 2017  

What’s the best way to discover the world? Travel is changing, and as independent adventure travel specialists we offer immersive cultural experiences in the form of active holidays for people who are interested in the world around them.

At Macs Adventure, we firmly believe human-powered travel is the best way to see and discover the world around you.

In December 2016, Macs Adventure moved to Skypark in Glasgow, and we are simply delighted to have one of the most dynamic and interesting offices in Glasgow.

Sometimes you need time away from your desk to hang about!

The unique and travel-themed office is a bespoke solution developed by Julia Grant Interior Design and SJS Property Services, and it is an embodiment of the values Macs Adventure stand for and we can’t thank everyone who has made this move possible enough.

You’ll find us at:

2nd Floor

Skypark 5

45 Finnieston Street

Glasgow G3 8JU

The fun and practical new office features details like a map-inspired moss wall, a quiet room for focused working, a large kitchen with a herb garden and wine storage fridge for after-work events, modular furniture and whiteboard walls for interactive meetings.

Safe and fun bike storage!

There is bike storage, a large picture wall with photos from happy customers on trips with Macs Adventure, and stylish meeting rooms in a contemporary design, all named after the company values: Be Adventurous; Stay Active; It’s Personal; Have Fun; and Give a Shit.

Have fun

Our company values are reflected throughout the office

More of those values we hold dear.

“We’ve invested in making our office space a creative and collaborative hub for all our business activities,” says Neil Lapping. “We love the quiet spaces, noisy spaces, bike spaces, write-able walls, carefully planned AV and IT tech, and a design theme which brings the outdoors indoors and reflects all of our company values.”

Room for collaboration

Room for collaboration

Team culture is a hugely important part of life at the active, outdoorsy Macs Adventure. The team spend their free time hiking, biking, climbing, running and socialising, and they have an active culture club organising events like pancake breakfast, team lunches, regular quizzes in the office, book club, running club and much more. When moving to Skypark, the proximity to Kelvingrove park, gyms and health centers, and the many high quality cafés, restaurants and bars was one of the main attractions.

Casual working spaces

Making meetings a bit more casual!

Tea break time

Time out for tea (and cake, of course)

Macs Adventure sell active holidays to adventurous people who are interested in the world around them. We truly love and care about what we do.

Our kitchen space doubles as a meeting and collaborative working space.

I have been a member of the Macs Adventure team since March 2013, and since joining my travel wish-list has developed ten-fold! Glasgow is my home, and a wonderful city to live in, however I love nothing more than enjoying the access to the Scottish countryside on my doorstep.
