About Me

Hi, I’m Adam Brown, a born & bred Yorkshireman in my mid-40s. I moved to New Zealand in 2009 to study for Environmental Science qualifications & have remained here ever since. I’ve mainly worked in the biosecurity & conservation fields all over NZ, usually on islands & in remote places.

My interest in hiking started over 30 years ago, as a teenager doing Duke of Edinburgh Award expeditions. I soon started hiking recognized trails such as the Coast to Coast & West Highland Way, before heading overseas on adventures, such as the Camino de Santiago. Much of my free time is spent exploring New Zealand’s back country, especially hiking through mountains & forests. In 2019/20 I walked the length of New Zealand’s two main islands, a 3000+km journey on Te Araroa (TA). It was a fantastic experience & whet my appetite for additional long distance walks!
