Adam Shand - Founder.


Adam found a passion for the mountains as a child, fuelled by completing his Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

He served in the RAF as a Firefighter, gaining valuable leadership and managerial skills. Since leaving the RAF Adam has enjoyed many adventures and is a qualified Mountain Leader. Adam is working towards his Rock Climbing Instructor qualification with his eyes set on Winter Mountain Leader and Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor in the near future.

His enthusiasm for the outdoors started in the Mourne Mountains of Northern Ireland and has since spread across the globe. 

Trekking has allowed Adam to find peace and inner-calm, through the use of mindfulness and yoga techniques. It is this that has driven him to start Namaste Mountaineering. He is able to share his approachable, dependable and calm personality to restore your mind and take you on an adventure.
