WHY WORK WITH US?

We have worked with hundreds of businesses to provide innovative solutions to engage their employees, develop better teams, demonstrate corporate responsibility, and support their charity partnerships. All while introducing participants to amazing experiences in new locations and raising £60 million in the process for more than 2000 worthwhile causes. Our challenges include treks, bike rides, mountain climbs, kayaking, dog sledding, skiing and sledge hauling. They take place throughout the UK and across the world, from the North Pole to the South Pole, tackling rivers, jungles, deserts, rainforests, volcanoes and glaciers in the process. From one day to three weeks in duration, and difficulty levels from challenging to extreme, we are sure to have something to meet your requirements and inspire your employees.

Exclusive Charity Challenges

exclusive challenges

An exclusive challenge is where we operate a challenge exclusively for your company. It could be one of our existing challenges on a date to suit you, or it could be a tailor-made challenge. That means the itinerary, dates, level of difficulty, duration, and accommodation type are all dictated by your brief to us. In order to book an exclusive challenge, you will be asked to commit to a minimum number of participants (dependent on the challenge and destination).

charity PARTNERS

We currently work with over 2000 UK and Irish registered charities. Some of our challenges are operated exclusively in aid of one particular charity, but where you see the words “in aid of any charity”, you can raise funds for any cause that you feel passionate about, as long as they are a UK or Irish registered charity, and they authorise you to fundraise in their name.

We will help to get the authorisation for you to fundraise, so choose from one of the many charities on our database, or if you don’t find them listed, you can give us some contact details when you book and we’ll get in touch with them about becoming a charity partner.
