Thinking of a self-supported trip of a lifetime or the ultimate travel challenge? Planning to drive a black cab around the world to raise funds for charity or to break a world record to cycle as far as you can in 7 days? Or maybe you came up with a mad plan in the pub for an epic expedition and now have to follow it through…

Whilst there is an excellent array of organised adventure travel tours available, more and more people are now planning their own personal adventures. Whether it be by vehicle, bicycle, motorcycle, horseback, walking etc… these often include travelling on your own or as a couple / small group.

This specialist seminar is aimed at people who want to gain a better understanding about creating their own adventure, including the challenges and pitfalls that might be encountered and how to best deal with them. How do you prepare for such a trip? What questions should you be asking yourself? How do you get the most out of the experience once on the trip? An expert panel of world renowned expedition planners with years of on-ground experience in many different and varied forms of travel will offer guidance on preparation and logistics to ensure you get the most out of a self-organised adventure.
