The Adventures

We're The Adventurists.

We’re fighting to make the world less boring.

Our planet used to slap us about the face-cheeks with iron fists of adventure every day.  Maps had edges to walk off. Men feared the monsters that lurked in the deep. Whole continents lay undiscovered.

But now, the entire surface of the Earth has been scanned by satellites and shovelled into your mobile phone, tagged with twattery about which restaurant serves the best mocha-latte-frappeshite.

Getting lost and in trouble is no longer an occupational hazard of walking to the market. It is an art-form. One we strive to perfect.

We live to find ways to make the world a bit more difficult. To bring chaos into our over-sanitised lives.  To create adventures where you don’t know what will happen tomorrow or if you’ll even make it.

Because we think there’s no greater moment than those seconds as you leap into an abyss of uncertainty and disaster.

  • Mongol Rally

    10,000 miles in a shit car your gran would be embarrassed by. The original and greatest adventure on the planet.

    Show me the Rally
  • Rickshaw Run

    Take on the world in a marginally glorified lawnmower. The ultimate 3 wheeled chaos generator.

    Tell me more
  • Monkey Run

    Stupidity perfected. Monkey bikes are pretty stupid. But they reach a whole new level of glory when you stick them in the middle of some of the toughest terrain on our good Earth.

    The Monkey What?
  • Mongol Derby

    Take on the steppe on the World famous Mongol Derby - the longest and toughest horse race on Earth. A multi-horse race where each horse only covers less than 40km but the riders take on 1000.

    The sky is calling you. 1000 km of aerial gauntlet is laid down each year.

£8 million for charity so far...

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 a 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.

The Institute of Adventure Research

We hand our research and development over to the unreasonably grand sounding I.O.A.R. Basically it’s a loose band of dickheads flapping about the corners of the earth in search of chaos and adventure.

Led by Adventurists founder Mr Tom and chief guinea pig Mr Buddy, it’s a little hard to fathom what’s coming next. In fact it’s often quite hard to tell what’s already happened. But it’s safe to assume it was in some way stupid.
