Our helpful crew is made up of not only qualified and experienced people, but people who care about what we deliver and the high standards we set ourselves. We all take our responsibility seriously and we are constantly looking to have a positive impact in our sector. We're a close-knit bunch of family and friends who love working together and creating amazing adventures for everyone.

The Boss (Allegedly!)
Darren is first and foremost a father to his son Reggie and when not teaching him to “hold a paddle” he also provides the company with a vision and ensures the mission statement is being met by the awesome band of merry men and women who make it all happen.

His passion for the outdoors stems from his past life in the military and now this stirs his passion for being able to share those experiences with you through his companies Addictive Adventure and Atlas Adventure. He also knows the travel industry really well and builds relationships and networks to find the next amazing thing for you to do. His favourite adventure trips are wild canoe expeditions with his big orange canoe.

Operations Manager
Colin Crockart is our Operations Manager.  Colin oversees all our trips, is the technical advisor in all things outdoor safety related. He quality checks all our trips and instructors for safety and fun, that is if he isn’t running them himself! 

Colin is a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor, Mountain bike guide and a White-Water Canoe, Kayak and SUP coach to name a few capabilities…  He enjoys mountaineering and adventuring around the World, is partial to a bit of sun and can usually be found kite surfing on the South coast of a weekend. He also likes banana pancakes if you ever share a campfire with him! 


Liz bio
Admin Manager
Elizabeth Marshall is our Administration Manager for Atlas Adventure.  Liz is responsible for the smooth running of our HQ. She organises the office, our diaries, oversees your reviews and enquiries and is the friendly voice you’ll hear at the end of the phone if you ever need to contact us.

Liz is a fair-weather cyclist and commutes to work on her bike (if its sunny) and spends time at the weekends keeping her two kids and husband entertained. She’s also a skilled seamstress and cake maker in her spare time. Liz has done most of her dream holidays but still thinks we are mad climbing up cliffs and into dark caves because her next dream destination is sipping cocktails in Thailand whilst watching the kids play in sea.
