Paul Seymour, the owner and proprietor of Seymour Adventure Co has been providing adventure and training experiences to the industry since 2003. His ethos is to find the adventurer in you, rather than take you on an adventure.

Paul is a UK trained mountaineer, rock climbing instructor, indoor wall instructor, white water canoe coach, kayak coach, mountain bike instructor and bushcraft trainer and enthusiast. He holds high level awards in each of these subjects. He has been delivering outdoor training, educational experiences and expeditions into the wilderness throughout the past two decades. He has also been on many personal adventures himself in this time, putting him in a position of experience that matches the best in his field.

This pathway has led him through being a principle training provider for the South West Moorland Leader scheme, and associated trainer for Mountain Training courses in rock climbing and indoor climbing. Added to this, his deep knowledge of risk management, we have a fully rounded character for the extreme environments found throughout the mountains and rivers of the United Kingdom.

Never happier than when ascending (or descending) the sea cliffs of the coastline of Cornwall, the mountains of Snowdonia, or the moors and rivers of Dartmoor. He even finds exploring the Cornish tin mines with ropes and torches a grand day out. There’s always somewhere new to discover, and if not then repeating a favourite climb or paddle is always on the cards.

Paul’s style has always been about inclusivity, exploration and togetherness. Every course or experience is constructed around the needs of the client. Excitement and adventure can be found in all environments, it doesn’t have to be the hardest, highest, longest or deepest to create memories. What is important for Paul, is that you leave the experience with knowledge and learning that will help take you on to your own pathway.

So, whatever it is that you seek; learning, training, adventure, excitement or perhaps just an experience then choosing the Seymour Adventure Co experience is a really good place to start.
