David Love is a UK Adventurer, Mountaineer and Expedition Leader. He’s also an instructor with the Bear Grylls Survival Academy and served as an Officer in the British Army.


Like lots of outdoorsy kids, I discovered my love for adventure at a young age, mainly in the rugged mountains of North Wales and the Lakes. At the age of 18, and despite having no prior experience of Mountaineering, I decided to make a solo and unguided ascent of Mont Blanc; a journey that igniting my lifelong flame for adventure.

Before joining the British Army, I spent every spare minute [and penny!] on gaining extensive experience in all of the UK’s mountainous regions and qualified as a Mountain Leader and Expedition Coordinator for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  I’ve now undertaken numerous expeditions across the world, both by land and sea, and travelled to some of the world’s most volatile countries, including Afghanistan, North & South Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Mali and other vast swathes of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.

Having now climbed throughout the European Alps, I’ve also been lucky enough to make multiple unguided ascents of some of Europe’s most iconic peaks including the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and the Eiger!

In early 2017, I made a solo winter traverse of the Transylvanian Alps to reach the summit the highest mountain in Romania; a journey that involved permanent sub-zero temperatures, unplanned emergency snow holes and a very close encounter with a mountain bear!  I also led an expedition to rediscover the location of the Lost Memorial of Gebeit; a missing Colonial-era monument in the remote fringes of the Sahara Desert, lost from the history books for over 60 years!

However, my true passion for the outdoors is firmly rooted in the hills and mountains of the UK, where I now spend much of my time volunteering and leading young people in some of the country’s most challenging environments with the aim of inspiring the next generation to discover their own spirit of adventure.
