Meet the Founder

Paul is an ex-geography teacher turned adventure enabler with a huge passion for the environment and all things wild. Born and raised in the north of Scotland, Paul has travelled widely from Australia to Borneo and has recently turned his focus to exploring closer to home.

Faced with the spiralling financial cost and environmental damage caused by international travel Paul decided to start an adventure company that champions domestic ‘backyard adventures’ right here in the UK. And so Rare was born.

If you want to contact Paul directly please email Rare Escapes at and he’ll get back to you ASAP.

You can also follow Paul on Instagram or Linkedin.
