Lobo Adventures is inspired by the spirit of the wolf.
It is a celebration of our wild, natural, playful, powerful, pack-building, freedom-loving selves. It is not tourism. It is not modest. It is, at the same time, nurturing and excessive. In the words of Henry David Thoreau,
“I went to the woods [the wild] because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived … I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life.”
We have traveled the world and know what makes up a life-changing travel experience. So, each one of our adventures has the following elements: physical challenge, cultural learning, exploration of wild places and spirited growth.
About Susie & Chris
In 2017, Susie Crossland-Dwyer and Chris Dwyer planned and executed a self-guided expedition that would change how they viewed the world, the physical planet and their personal abilities. After nearly two years of preparation, many sacrifices and a multitude of help from community effort, they successfully ran six mountain ultra-marathons on five continents in just under two months. Their Explore the Edges project included over 39,000 miles of flying, roughly 300 miles of mountain running from as far and wide as “The Land of Fire” at the glaciated southern tip of Argentina to the International Appalachian Trail whose mountains traverse the Atlantic Ocean and terminate in Northern Ireland. They bivouacked in Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, and Ireland, creating DIY “races,” inviting the locals to join in, and throwing themselves upon the generosity of strangers & friends who were their hosts.
Inspired by the beauty of the wild places they traversed as well as by the kind and generous spirit of humanity around the globe, Lobo Adventures was born.
Both Susie and Chris are experienced trail runners and coaches with almost 15 years of experience in wellness. In 2010, they founded a boutique fitness studio in Cincinnati, OH called studio s. They continue to own and operate this thriving business with the support of their community. More about Susie's background and credentials.
