Whether it’s trekking through the Himalayas in Nepal, cycling from Vietnam to Cambodia or even a one day hike up Ben Nevis – we’ve done it. Our challenge events have helped raise in excess of £20 million for a range of charities, nationwide.
Our passion for challenge events runs deep – we love what we do. We create and deliver adventure challenges that enable people to achieve their goals.
Global Adventure Challenges is made up of people who love adventure and the great outdoors! From our dedicated office staff in Chester, to our inspiration event crew – we’ve all been out and experienced our events – and there is no greater feeling than to helping you guys to experience adventure too! We pride ourselves on delivering high-quality challenges with high-quality customer service to match.
Here at Global Adventure Challenges we are one big community. We have dedicated Facebook Groups for each of our challenges, so you can get chatting to fellow participants prior to departure. We also have individual trekking and cycling groups, so that you can share training tips, challenge experiences and ask advice from past participants!

We care about the countries we visit. For all of our overseas challenges we work with small, local ground handlers who employ local guides, ensuring all local staff are given a fair wage.
We have also teamed up with Climate Care to encourage all participants to offset the carbon emitted from taking flights as part of their charity challenge. To find out how much you should offset, click here - https://climatecare.org/calculator.
We are also proud to support National Trails, following their guide to event organisers for our UK challenges. For every challenge that takes place on a National Trail, we donate £1 per participant towards the maintenance of the trail.
The safety and security of our participants, leaders and event support crew is our number one priority. All of our challenges have been tried and tested and are fully risk assessed.
We only ever use paid professionals – we never rely on volunteers. This ensures we have full control over every element of our challenge. All of our Challenge Leaders are trained in Outdoor Emergency Rescue Care First Aid and are equipped with full comprehensive medical kits. We also have UK doctors join us on most of our challenges. Furthermore, for every challenge, there is a dedicated 24-hour emergency contact within the UK.
