Michelle Hughes

Adventure guide, reiki master, mother—all sides of Michelle Hughes are united in a passion for her native Ireland, particularly the west coast where she lives with her family. For Michelle, all roads lead outside, whether teaching navigational skills in the hills and wilderness areas or running, walking, or sea kayaking. Her passion for adventure began at the age of 20, with an overland trip from London to Kathmandu on a double-decker bus. She’s also a lover of Celtic folklore and translates Celtic stories for travelers into a deeper understanding of the Irish landscape—accompanied by a traditional tune or song, when the occasion calls for it.
