Lisa Drewe

I am the author of ‘’Islandeering: adventures around the edge of Britain’s hidden islands’’ and have written about the islands of Britain for many outdoor magazines and national newspapers. My passion is human-powered exploration of the wild places around our coastline and sharing this through books, articles, blogs and the website Islandeering.com, so that others can do the same.
My research over the last 10 years has meant walking, scrambling, running, kayaking, biking over 4,000 kilometres and climbing 75,000 vertical metres around the outside edge of islands and exploring them inland from top to bottom.
I am very keen to give back and help as many others as possible to get outdoors and explore what we have on our doorstep. Here’s how:

  • Very proud to be a GetOutside Champ for Ordnance Survey and together we are talking about Blue Space, recognizing all of the hundreds of different forms of water in the UK, how to access it and the mental and physical benefits of being on, in, next to and under it in the UK. Join our community group on Facebook
  • Chair of the global charity, Whale and Dolphin Conservation who powerfully protect these amazing creatures and their marine homes around the world and
  • Board Director and instructor for British Nordic Walking, getting people outdoors and benefitting from this amazing all body workout, whilst having a good natter and laugh.
