Wilderness Trails

Wilderness Trail

Aberkyn Wilderness Trails are learning experiences in nature.

Allow nature to re–open your senses. Revisit your aspirations. Where are you today? Where do you want to go next? Grow, personally and professionally. All in the great outdoors.


What & How

We run trails for individuals, teams and large leadership groups. Trails last between 3–5 days, and are suitable for people of all fitness levels.

Individual leaders 

Multi–client leadership development programs offer a space to reflect on purpose, connect with peers and convert insights into action

Intact teams

Nature–based top team programs build trust, alignment and commitment as an integral part of a top team leadership journey

Large leadership groups

Our multiple cohort approach for top 30 – 300 executives accelerates sustainable business transformation on a wider scale

Trail Principles


We tend to overcomplicate the world and our work. Nature’s simplicity puts your challenges into perspective. 


There’s power in silence. It creates space for intuition. It helps you see, think and feel things differently. Solutions emerge without effort.


Break out of your comfort zone, in a challenging, and safe, environment. 


Feel your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects connect. Use this connection to become a better leader.

  • A quiet mind
  • A strong connection to your body
  • All your senses re–opened
  • Deep reflection on your experiences so far, and where you want to go next
  • Heightened sense of clarity
  • New perspectives from your fellow travellers
  • New centering skills, such as meditation

…and all in a condensed time frame.

Wilderness trails take place in remote and secluded nature areas. All–continent, all–season.

The optimal trail destination depends on your needs and wishes. Shall we explore together? You are warmly invited to contact us.

If you have a particular location in mind, we can arrange a bespoke trail. From Bhutan and the Himalayas to the Rockies and Patagonia, the choice is yours.

Each trail is led by Aberkyn wilderness facilitators and certified wilderness guides. 

Your facilitators and guides are trained to keep you safe and help you get the most out of the experience.
