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.
Special departure trips allow our supporters to explore remote and interesting places in the world, while also raising money for our causes. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 our 2020 programme has been postponed. Details for 2021/22 will be unveiled once international travel becomes possible once more.
As well as organising trips ourselves, we also work with partners to provide access to a number of fund-raising challenges both at home here in the UK and abroad. These give you the opportunity for a lifechanging experience while raising vital funds for our projects. A few examples below:
London to Paris Bike Ride
Giants Causeway, UK
Hadrian’s Wall, UK
Ben Nevis, UK
Camino de Santiago Trek, Spain
Inca Trail, Peru

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.
Rob was joined at Lukla by a group of supporters all of whom fund-raised for EAE. They continued up to the Khumbu Ice-flow and Everest Base Camp.
