Matt Atkinson, best known for playing Thomas on The Bold and the Beautiful, has a large social media following and loves to share pictures of his adventures with fans on Instagram.

Most recently, Matt visited Florida and showed his adventurous side as a keen traveller by taking to the water in a canoe.

Here is everything we know about Matt’s love of travelling and the wilderness, what he is up to next, and his friendship (and nightmare camping experience) with his cast mate Scott Clifton…

Matt Atkinson heads to Florida

B&B star Matt has shared a series of pictures from his latest adventure with fans on Instagram. The actor can be seen trying his hand at canoeing with friends in Florida, according to the tagged location.

Matt captioned the pictures, which included a selfie of him wearing a bucket hat and smiling: “I learned that wearing a canoe on your head is best done capsized. Otherwise, its an oar-deal.”

This is not Matt’s only trip this month, as the star also shared snaps from Boston and Arizona on his Instagram page. Fans know that Matt is a keen traveler, so this doesn’t come as a surprise.

Cast mate Scott Clifton shares Matt’s love of adventure

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Matt and his B&B cast mate Scott Clifton spoke about their mutual love of camping and the wilderness. Scott explained that the two of them share a “snooty elitism” when it comes to camping, and judge others who use the word camping “in vain,” when they didn’t properly rough it.

The actors went on a couple of camping trips together, and Matt said of their friendship: “What worked out very well in that circumstance is when you go on an adventure with someone who is as game for the adventure as you are. You can go on an adventure with people and you can say, “Oh, we’re going to go camping,” and things start going wrong and a lot of people can get upset. I’ve had so many things go wrong in my life, especially when it comes to camping.”

In fact, on one of their trips, a lot did go wrong. The camp site was shut, they struggled to find a place to stay, and the two actors battled wind and heavy snow!

Matt set to appear on Bold Live

Matt and Scott are both set to appear on Bold Live on August 26 at 7pm ET/4pm PT. The digital talk show, which you can catch on YouTube here, allows fans to call in and speak to the cast members and is hosted by The Bold and the Beautiful supervising producer, Casey Kasprzyk.

The description reads: “Bold Live is also the only talk show in which soap fans can watch a show producer and cast member, talking shop–discussing intimate details about what just happened behind the scenes, or on set that week–directly from Television City Studios production offices and stars’ Dressing Rooms.”
