Welcome

Welcome to the adventure!

The Armchair Adventure Festival is the world’s first all-live virtual adventure festival! Throughout 2020 we hosted two festivals and five film nights featuring the world’s most adventurous people. Over 5,000 of you joined us for the live, virtual events and in doing so you raised over £12,500 for charity. Our next event is The Armchair Adventure Bootcamp! With workshops on everything from funding to photography, it’s a crash course on how to make that dream trip a reality, and how to capture the memories when you go.

Take me to Bootcamp!

    Lisa and Simon first went out to ride around the world in May of 2003 and have since ridden an insane 500,00 miles! They have helped to define adventure motorcycling as we know it! They are professional adventurers who will be sharing their skills with us. They'll be doing a masterclass in photography, a workshop in cooking on the road and a presentation about their 17 years in the saddle.

    Karl Bushby

    Karl is attempting to complete the longest walk in history. He left the UK in 1998 and has been walking home ever since. So far, Karl has walked from from the very southern most point of South America, all the way to Turkmenistan. He has walked every single step of the way, including through the 'impenetrable' Darian Gap (at a time when it was controlled by the FARC) and across the pack ice from Alaska to Russia! So he has very literally walked the entire way!! Karl will be drawing on his experience from crossing the pack-ice, hacking his way through the impenetrable Darien Gap, to teach us about planning for these places and the general preparation for extreme enviroments.

    Kinga Tanajewska

    Kinga's been 'On Her Bike' since 2017 when she quit her job in Australia and set off to ride around the world on a motorbike.  Her current trip is called the 'Are we there yet?' tour because she doesn't know where it will end! She joined us to chat about her adventurers at one of our film nights back in 2020 when she was stuck in Poland, but has since managed to get back on the road and is now making her way through Africa! Having been on the road since 2017 the obvious, million dollar question is how does she afford it? Well, we're going to find out as she'll be delivering a workshop on 'making money on your adventures'!  It's one you definitely don't want to miss and for anyone who has ambitions to travel and make money to keep you going this will be the ideal workshop for you!
