The Macs Adventure Culture
We’re an adventurous business with an ambitious vision. We aim to triple the size of the business by 2026. We want to do this the right way and have set ourselves another important goal of achieving B Corp status within 2 years.
Our culture reflects these ambitions. We’re a fast-paced organisation and we like to have fun along the way. We’re looking for people who can grow with Macs and join us on our journey. It’s not the easy route; we’re looking for people who enjoy challenges, love learning and want to make an impact and relate to our core values:
Love the journey: A Macs trip is all about the journey, not the destination. We accept our business will grow and change.
Take a different path: We devise creative solutions to problems, find new ways of doing things, and trust colleagues who are doing so too.
Tread thoughtfully: We are considerate, empathetic and try to put ourselves in our customers’, suppliers’, and each other’s shoes.
Go the extra mile: We imagine the best feedback we can get and set out to earn it. We take ownership and accountability. We step up and help our teammates when they need us.

Macs Adventure was founded in a small flat in Glasgow's West End by Neil Lapping. The idea was simple and felt brilliant: offer an alternative to huge coach tours and traditional walking holidays.
Self-guided walking launched
After much trial and error, a new range of self-guided walking holidays was launched. It turns out that our customers want the sense of achievement that comes with an active walking holiday and so were on our way!
The Macs team grows
It wasn't long before an office in Glasgow was needed to house our growing team to organise our growing range of trips!
Overseas trips launched
With self-guided walking trips in the UK proving extremely popular, new trips in Europe and beyond were launched to give even more choice to our active customers looking for their next Macs Adventure.
Germany office opens
After many years working at Macs, our wonderful Alex Zewe launched our sister company Abenteuer Wege, which employs over 50 people in our office in Saarbrucken, helping German and European adventurers discover the joy of self-guided active travel.
US office opens
Due to growing demand from the US market looking to discover the benefits of Macs self-guided active travel in the UK, Europe and beyond, Macs Adventure opened an office in the US. The team is growing fast and we have over 20 "Macs Adventurers" in Denver organising trips for their fellow Americans and Canadians!
We now employ over 150 "Macs Adventurers" between the UK, US and Germany, and have over 30,000 customer experiencing a self-guided Macs Adventure every year!
Where we're going - The Macs Vision
We are changing the way people experience active travel. By 2026, we'll be a digital-first, profitable B Corp, powered by a passionate team of walking and cycling enthusiasts. We will triple the size of the business, enabling more than 100,000 customers from around the world to experience, and advocate, our unique brand of self-guided active travel.
