Explorers Connect

Powering the Adventure Revolution


Welcome to Explorers Connect - the community of 28,000 people who like to explore new places, try new experiences, meet new people and live more adventurously

Explorer & campaigner, Belinda Kirk established Explorers Connect as a not-for-profit organisation to help people live more adventurously. The modern world has become too easy, too averse to challenge and too disconnected from nature and this is having a negative effect on our physical and mental health. What we need is an #AdventureRevolution

"I’ve seen adventure change people’s lives and it changed mine, by giving inspiration, building confidence and creativity and bringing people together. The Explorers Connect community believes in making the most of life; together we are making a real difference and having fun." - Belinda Kirk

At Explorers Connect we want to make it easy for you to have more adventures. Come on your own or bring your friends. Everyone is welcome!

"I'm right behind the guys at Explorers Connect - there's an explorer in us all and with this fast growing and friendly community, there's real scope for us all to participate, to inspire and to be inspired - to push some boundaries!” - Sir Ranulph Fiennes

“Explorers Connect helps aspiring adventurers to make significant steps towards their dreams – and we all need a little help sometimes!  It is about sharing skills, knowledge and resources with like-minded folk and making the world both smaller and bigger!” - Bear Grylls
