Well, believe it or not, it started off in 2007 in a library in a small coastal town called Cahersiveen in County Kerry, Ireland. While searching through a variety of library books for ideas on a groovy company name, I looked up for inspiration, a drop of motivation and probably more in truth as a distraction, I noticed an array of nicely drawn alphabet letters that represented a word e.g A for Apple, B for …..BANG!!! and there it was…. not the Big Bang, but nonetheless the creation of our first adventure company, Mor Active Tours. (Wild N Happy comes along further in our story... so keep reading) First of all, you might ask what and why Mór Active Tours? Well, it stands for Mountain Ocean River Active which best describes the adventures we are passionate about and secondly Mór Active in our Gaelic language means BIG Active.
Mor Active Tours primary focus was day tour experiences and so we set about creating a variety of day tour adventure hubs throughout Ireland. Once they were completed and functioning to our desired level, then the final icing on the cake was to unveil these adventure hubs, ready and waiting, to the wider international community who would like to avail of experience multi day tour, self drive tours and private tour experiences. Simple, but there is always a but….so jump to 2015!
It became very evident through our market research that Mor Active Tours gave the impression to our potential clientele that we were about to bring them kayaking down a wild river or gently pushing them off a cliff thus frightening the pants off people. So, we decided to create a softer brand image for a wider market that still worked in tandem with Mor Active Tours and in keeping with our lust for exploring, experiencing and giving back to the world.
Hey presto, out popped Wild N Happy, a brand new company (a child in my eyes), screaming with excitement and ready for adventuring.
From our humble beginnings in a library in 2007 to now, it is hard to believe what we have created and to be honest I couldn’t be prouder. It has been down to a lot of hard work, pulling my hair (I have plenty of it so I haven’t gone bald yet) at times and most importantly of all, you the people, who have joined us on our incredible journey. I know we wouldn’t be where we are today without your kindness, enthusiasm, feedback and wonderful tour reviews. It gives me hope and energy that we are continuing to move in the right direction with our strong values towards responsible travel and having a dedicated team of friendly and enthusiastic people to help you plan your dream adventure around this beautiful world.
