Vivien Day

Vivien, known as Viv, grew up in the Shetland Isles and this gave her the first taste of wild weather and space to run over heather clad hills.  Sadly there was a lack of mountains but this was fixed when the family moved back to England.  Viv has always loved exploring the wilder parts of the UK but is still drawn back to the beautiful National Parks.

Further afield, after 16 months exploring New Zealand and Australia she turned everything around and as she knew that being outdoors was the only way to be and so the path leading to the end of 20+ years in the food manufacturing industry began.

This was the springboard for Viv to gain her International Mountaineering Leader qualification and discovering how beautiful the Pyrenees and the Alps are with the summer flowers and the winter snows.

Viv loves leading expeditions abroad and have led several student expeditions to Nepal and Africa. My favourite part of taking a group into the great outdoors is to help them achieve their goals and to show them the beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna we have all around us.

As part of my qualification I have to undertake regular Continuing Professional Development Training and First Aid qualifications.

I would be delighted to pass on my energy and enthusiasm to you on a hike.

Viv and her husband, Jason, (also an IML and one of our leaders) are based in the UK, but spend a significant amount of each year abroad living the dream and helping other people enjoy a life of adventure.
