Why We Do What We Do

We're on a mission to help create:

“happier people and a healthier planet through adventure and community”.

Through our trips, you'll see a sunrise that'll blow your mind or perhaps make an adventure buddy for life so you can rediscover that child-like sense of excitement.

We’ll also save you a boatload of time. Did you know it takes on average 40 hours to plan a trip?

And with our gear reviews, you’ll be well equipped, comfy, and safe when you head out into the wild on your own so you can make the most of your time in the outdoors.

Our Story

A few years back, our founder George traded his office desk for the open road. George pedalled over 14,000km from Alaska to Panama wild camping along the way. He met a bear or two, stayed with the Cartel, and came back with stories that had us at the edge of our seats.

He realised that adventure is more of a state of mind than anything. And that you don’t need to quit your job and travel halfway across the world to make the every day more exciting. Adventure is right on your doorstep if you’ll just go looking.

So, Call to Adventure was born.

Keeping it real

Honesty's Our Jam

Every review we put out? We really mean it. No fluff. If we love something, we'll tell you. And if it's a miss, you'll hear about that too.

Our partnership with brands is transparent. Yes, we sometimes earn commissions (this doesn’t cost you anything extra), but our commitment to authentic, unbiased advice remains unshaken.

For the Planet

We're trying to do our bit for Mother Nature. By championing more sustainable gear and travel, we're hoping to leave the world a tad better than we found it.

We’re also a member of 1% for the Planet so we donate 1% of our revenue (not profit) to leading environmental and social programmes. So each booking you make with us or time we earn a little bit of cash from a review, you help make a difference. Nice!

George B

George (our founder) is always on the hunt for new ways to get his latest adventure fix. Uninspired and in search of stoke, George left his job in Finance in The City heading out on an 18-month off-road bike trip from Alaska to Panama. After returning home he set up Call to Adventure on a mission to help create 'happier people and a healthier planet through adventure and community'.

Steph C

Steph loves walking long distances, taking photos along the way, and always making time for coffee and cake. She sometimes runs, but not too far... Through her writing, she loves inspiring others to get outside and live more adventurously.

Emily R

Languages graduate, nature addict and part-time Labrador, Em lives to explore. Having lived in the French Alps, the Lake District and the Canadian Rockies, home has always involved an adventure playground for a back garden with endless opportunities for adventure. If she’s not racing her dog up the fells, hitting the surf or escaping in her camper van, chances are she’ll be writing about the joys of all the above.

Jacob A

A scientist by training and a communicator by trade, Jacob is happiest surrounded by plenty of greenery and perhaps a panoramic view or two. Currently based in Costa Rica, he's certainly in explorer mode!

Charli M

Living for adventure, Charli frequently escapes from her base in the UK and rambles about her travels to other adventurers. She also has a penchant for remote landscapes and crunchy peanut butter.

Nick D

Nick is an outdoor enthusiast and journalist who writes walking columns for Scottish Field and Scotland on Sunday, as well as articles on the outdoors for The Scots Magazine and national newspapers. His first love is the hills but you can also find him on paddleboards, in kayaks and canoes and occasionally camping out wild in the middle of nowhere.

Ash R

Like many adventurous folk, Ash lives a double life. Public health scientist by day, and freelance adventure writer by night. He has written for national newspapers and global outlets such as Red Bull, Outside, and the Financial Times. Ash has a passion for cold weather and arctic travel, such as walking 640km across a frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia a couple of years ago.

Amy S

Amy is a freelance writer based in the Yorkshire countryside. Specialising in travel writing, she discovered a love of all things outdoors while volunteering and camping in beautiful British Columbia. You’ll often find her tramping trails with partner Phil and their rescue pup, Wolfie.

Mark W

Mark Watson is a New Zealand-based photographer and author specialising in landscape, adventure and travel photography. His passion for climbing, cycling and photography have taken him all over New Zealand and many places overseas in search of fresh experiences in the crags, mountains, and among new cultures. His most epic adventure yet was a 4-year, 45,500km journey from Alaska to central Patagonia.
