Phil Boorman

Active Adventures Travel Specialist

For most of Phil's working life he's tried his very best to avoid getting a normal job. It didn't take him long to figure out exactly how he could straddle the fence between earning an income and exploring the world. The result was Active Adventures! Phil is a co-founder of Active and when he's not putting together new trips and custom itineraries for people, you'll find him in his whitewater kayak, paddling some of New Zealand's best whitewater. According to his wife, he's FANATICAL about kayaking, travel and adventure in general, which makes him rather hard to live with, but the ideal person to put together a trip that will suit you down to the ground!

Active's first Himalaya trek

“This is my third trip with Active. The Machapuchare trek was the most awesome that I have been on. It was very special being Active's first Himalaya trip, and having Phil as our guide. I am now looking forward to my next Active Adventure.”
