Expeditions & Challenges
Explorers Against Extinction charity expeditions recreate the journeys of explorers and adventurers. All profit from these trips, as well as fund-raising by the participants supports Explorers Against Extinction projects.
Unfortunately due to Covid-19 our 2020 expedition programme has been postponed. Details for 2022 will be unveiled once international travel becomes possible once more.
UK-based Charity Challenges
As well as organising expeditions to remote places in the world, we also work with a specialist partner, Global Adventure Challenges, to provide access to a number of exciting fund-raising activities here in the UK and beyond.
These give you the opportunity for a lifechanging experience while raising vital funds for our projects. Activities range in duration from short weekend/overnight challenges to extended treks and cycles. Each trip is clearly graded as challenging, tough or extreme.

Details: In February – March 2020 EAE trustee Robert Ferguson trekked to Everest Base Camp, following the route taken by the 1953 British Everest Expedition that successfully reached the summit. This entailed walking from the Kathmandu Valley to Everest, a journey of some 200 miles through some of the most spectacular terrain in the world. Every step was ascent or descent. He completed the trek using only equipment available at the time.
