We are...

… The Adventurists. The ointment for that itch in the back of your brain telling you to set fire to your clothes and run screaming down the streets of our cities. The modern world is… well it can be a bit shit. When did you last have to run away from a lion while trying to buy a cabbage in a supermarket?

Mobile phones are constantly shovelling pointless facts into our eyeballs, making sure we know exactly where we are all the time. Telling us where we can get the latest double-sugar-fuck-a-chino in the most convenient way possible. We don’t need convenience, we need chaos.

Humans need adventure. We evolved in a world that was trying to eat us and without it, we lose perspective. Since some other git has already filled in all the edges of the maps we have to try that little bit harder to find it

And that is something we might be able to help with. We spend our hours planning and scheming to create a whole new breed of adventure to help us fight to make the world less boring.

£8 Million for charity

That’s what we, in our obviously rather humble way, like to call saving the World. A bit.

We sat down at Adventurists Towers and pondered what we could do that would actually save the world a bit. Then it hit us like a well-polished brogue to the nuts: “we must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck…and can also breathe.”  Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them.  It’s not just about carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent.

So Adventurists, we shall fix it. We shall save them all.”

After what was actually a very long and detailed investigation we discovered an organisation that was already doing rather a good job protecting more rainforest than the UN and all other nation states on earth – Cool Earth.  They are quite literally saving the world.  Hats off to them.

The marvellous teams across our adventures try to raise at least £1,000 for charity, half for Cool Earth as our official charity, and half for their charity of choice. This goes directly to the organisations they’re supporting so everyone knows all their pennies are going to a great cause.
