Aberystwyth to Cardigan next week. Yay!

"I love to climb hills and be by the sea, but there is simply nothing as wonderful as spending time in amongst the trees. This snap was taken in Feshiebridge up in the Cairngorms, Scotland." Awesome photo by our Iger of the week @splodz!

Time to meet our new Instagrammer of the week...Well hello! I’m @Splodz, one of Ordnance Survey’s #GetOutside Champions, and I’m all about spending my spare time in the great outdoors. I like to think I’m pretty normal; I’m no mountaineer, fitness fanatic or professional adventurer, but I do love to hike and camp and go on road trips as often as I can in between the normal business of day to day life. I’m super excited to share a few of my favourite memories of outdoors adventures I’ve had here in Great Britain this week. Here I am looking over the North York Moors Railway from Skelton Tower.

#GetOutside and practice your navigation skills like @0nzski. Lots of advice at os.uk/nmrw if you want to get started

The last photo from our fantastic Instagrammer of the week and #GetOutside Champion David from @pottyadventures. Make sure you follow him for bags of inspiration on family adventures. "No matter the weather or the season we’ll get outside as a family to explore the true beauty that the UK has to offer and to ease the stress of day-to-day life. When you’re lakeside, enjoying a flask of hot chocolate, surrounded by snowy peaks; it’s amazing how quickly you can all forget about the pressures of modern day life."

Who has walking behind a waterfall on their #GetOutside bucket list? Ticked that one off @trekkingtraveller! ・・・

Now this is a handy addition to a trig pillar! How often have you fancied a rest after climbing a hill? #Repost @rom1_fruk a lovely Summer sunset on top of Burrow Hill in Somerset. .

Weekend #GetOutside goals via Instagrammer of the week @pottyadventures: "With a pack on my back and surrounded by the mountains and lakes of the Lake District, there’s very few places I’d rather be."

Happy weekend everyone. If you’re heading to #BristolBalloonFiesta, we’ll keep our fingers crossed for good weather and stunning displays. We love this stunning photo over Clifton and the suspension bridge by @bristolblueballoon - up, up and away!
We get some pretty spectacular views from the balloon 🎈
