Spotty Dog!

Have you ever dreamed of gliding across the Arctic tundra pulled by a team of huskies or skiing up the frozen Zanzkar River through the realm of the Snow Leopard? Have you imagined the sensation of breaking through the cloud-line whilst climbing one of the great peaks of the Himalaya or of treading in the footsteps of WW2 pilots along the escape routes of the Chemin de la Liberté?

Whether it’s free riding motorbikes across the vast expanses of the Gobi desert or exploring the tribal areas of Nagaland, Warthog specialises in Off Grid Adventures to some of the most remote and undiscovered locations in the world. Our ethos may be off grid but there’s little of the world that’s off limits. As for the spotty dog, you’ll just have to join one of our adventures to see what that’s all about.

John Howie

John founded Warthog in 1989 after a 12 year walkabout that took him through Australia, Africa, Asia and South America. Working in the Bush, on drilling rigs and in various security roles, he followed the Nile south through Egypt and the Sudan and eventually to Madagascar. He explored Central America and the Baja California and having survived a number of civil wars and coup d’etas  in various African and South American countries he settled into the family Cider business in East Sussex where he headed up Export Sales and Marketing for 8 years. The Cider trade and then Warthog were combined with some 30 odd years in the Territorial Army and Army Reserves, where he’s led over 50 Adventurous Training expeditions all over the World.

In addition to a host of military mountaineering qualifications (rock climbing instructor, ice climbing and alpine leader, ski mountaineering instructor; avalanche demolitions at the Swiss Army School of Mountain Warfare),  John is also a BASI Nordic ski Instructor, International Mtn Ldr and has a number of military and civilian wilderness medical first aid qualifications. He is a recreational diver and rides a Triumph Thunderbird in his home mountains of the Pyrenees.

His experience and depth of knowledge of our planet and his love of the wild has lent itself to creating a thriving and very personal Adventure Outfitter operation.

Charlie Perring

Having spent twenty-five years working in the sports and entertainment industry, Charlie became a partner in Warthog in 2013 to oversee the commercial, operational and marketing elements of the business whilst supporting the increasing charity and corporate activity that Warthog manages.

A keen adventurer with a hankering to explore the more remote locations of the globe, Charlie can be found both at HQ and out in the field as an Expedition Leader for Warthog’s Off-Grid Moto Tours, Nordic Ski Tours and Charity Challenges.

The last few years have seen him immerse himself in a ‘literal’ steep learning curve, accompanying expeditions to Stok Kangri, Mt Toubkal, Pico Aneto, the Arctic Circle, the Gobi desert, Kazakhstan, Bolivia, Vietnam/Cambodia, the Hardangervidda and more recently on the Eiger Trilogy recce.

Charlie holds a wilderness medic first aid qualification and rides a restored Royal Enfield Bullet, when he can get it working!
