Abbie Barnes, award-winning Presenter, Filmmaker, Adventurer, during the Abbie Bikes Britain Challenge in 2021. 2000 miles via every national park in the UK


Abbie runs one of the leading outdoor channels on YouTube and as such there is something for everyone! From day walking adventures and feature-length documentaries following footpaths and trails around the world, hiking tips, gear reviews, wild foods and foraging ideas, mindfulness activities, wee canoeing trips, and much more. 

One of the goals of Spend More Time In The WILD is to build a solid resource of films documenting hikes around the world in order to leave the viewer not just inspired, but empowered through education and knowledge, almost like a visual guidebook.


Abbie's videos should leave you with enough information to know whether a trek is for you, relating to the time the hike will take based upon distance and strenuosity, the facilities available, best season to walk, and perhaps most importantly, how you can give back to the lands and communities you have travelled through. 

Do take your time looking around at the various playlists available.

New videos are uploaded every other Monday.
