Explorers Connect

Powering the Adventure Revolution

Who Attends Our Adventures?

If you've never come on an EC Adventure before, they're informal, friendly and great fun.

We generally have singles, couples and small sets of friends coming along, from complete beginners to adventure professionals. What we all share is a love for adventure. Ages tend to range between mid 20s and mid 40s but anyone over 18yrs old and young at heart is welcome. Don't worry about coming on your own, most people do, so there are likely to be others who are attending their first event alone too. Adventure is a great way of meeting like-minded people 

What adventures do we organise ourselves?

Regular social evenings where an Explorer is invited to speak about their latest expedition - currently in London and Bristol

Regular evening and midweek adventures in London and Bristol 

A wide variety of adventure weekends around the UK

Adventure holidays and expeditions

We take safety very seriously. All activities are assessed and managed by Belinda Kirk, who has 20years of experience leading adventurous activities and has been responsible for the safety of everyone from field scientists and BBC film crews to school children and Gap Year gappers in many of the most remote and dangerous environments on the planet.  This means that all the activities are properly assessed, managed, staffed and insured. Adventure always presents risks but through our experience, training, briefings and careful planning we do our best to minimise these to acceptable levels.

Why do we do it?

We all have a passion for adventure and we love sharing it. Being part of Explorers Connect has already been such an incredibly positive, fun and adventurous experience for all of those who work on the team. We are sincerely proud to have have a positive effect on the lives of the people who join our community, whether its a few more fun nights out in a tent or has lead to a complete life change. Explorers Connect has been around for several years and we hope to spread this love of adventure to others.
