We have been running adventurous, challenging trips all over the world since 1994, they come in many varieties - trekking, cycling, multi-activity and sailing. Whether at high or low altitudes, in mountains, desert or jungle, you can rest assured that you will have a real adventure and help others at the same time. It will be tough at times, but that's what makes it so worthwhile and memorable!
These are trips designed by us to be challenging and to push your limits. They are not holidays! They involve preparation in terms of fundraising and improving fitness. As well as the incredibly rewarding feeling of completing the challenge you have set yourself, you also know that your efforts are helping the charity you are raising money for. They are for anyone wanting to raise money for any charity, whether it’s a large national organisation or your local hospice or trust. You will meet others on your trip who are raising money for many different charities.
We grade our trips over 5 levels of difficulty, with 1 being challenging and 5 being extreme. A challenging graded trip will have long days of physical activity over varied terrain, with a good level of fitness required, while an extreme challenge will involve high altitudes, tough terrain and extremes of temperatures and will demand high levels of stamina and perseverance. Look out for these symbols throughout the website:-
Perhaps you've always wanted to see Machu Picchu, the Great Wall of China or Angkor Wat. Or you have always wanted to cycle from Land's End to John O' Groats, or London to Paris, but never turned that ambition into a reality? With Discover Adventure you can do that, and ensure the charity of your choice benefits from your efforts.
Our Open Challenges are designed to be flexible, because we know that people have different time commitments, and different budgets. You can either choose to fundraise a specified target amount, or fund your own trip costs and raise whatever you can.
Whatever you choose, you can be sure that your trip will be professionally-run, very rewarding and - very importantly - great fun!
These are trips we design and run for particular charities - we act as a tour operator, pulling all aspects of the challenge together tailoring what we do to the requirements of the charity. You can sign up for any bespoke challenge featured on our website but you will have to raise the specified fundraising amount stated by the charity and only fundraisers supporting the charity will be on the trip.
