Lions wanted for hazardous journey, small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success.
*Inspired by Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition in 1914
Whilst an IGO is in no way as extreme as Shackleton's 1914 expedition across Antarctica, sometimes the journey will have hazards. It’s definitely not always cold and you won’t be away for months, there is very little danger and we sincerely hope that you will return safely. One thing that does ring true is that you will be honoured and recognised for all of your success!
We are IGO Adventures, tearing up routines, unplugging the digital world and giving you a purpose to reconnect with nature creating a community akin. We are not stuffy and we try not to travel ‘traditionally’. We want you to explore the world in a way that makes sense and above all - look after it! You’re probably reading this because you feel the same… If the answer is yes then please keep reading.
We are offering a small number of individuals the opportunity to host our expeditions in our ongoing mission to adventure with purpose. We invite you to join us in our mission to inspire people to thrive as humans in the wild, supporting global networks of independents who bring home the bacon doing what they love and most importantly to guide every footstep to a higher purpose.
We have trips all over the globe. Perhaps you have a preference or you’re just looking to pin the tail on the donkey. Either way we’d love to hear from you.
