Kirsty Wood

Kirsty has always loved travelling, having spent many family trips away as a child. One of her fondest memories was getting her first taste of adventure white water rafting while in France. This sparked a love for exciting activities and led to travels further afield including Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

She believes there is no quicker way to bond with others than experiencing exciting activities and working together in an adventurous setting. Navigating rapids, kayaking alongside each other over bumpy waves and snorkelling with an array of marine life are the types of shared experiences that really bring a group together.

Kirsty loves experiencing destinations in a way that a typical tourist wouldn’t and really enjoys that Activities Abroad source local suppliers in order to get the insider knowledge – avoiding the tourist traps and finding the hidden gems.
