Why Human Powered Adventure Matters

As we celebrate the 7th anniversary of The Clymb we wanted to take a moment and honor the many thousands of our members that have travelled with us along the way, whether it’s supporting the best brands in the outdoor industry or exploring the world on extraordinary human-powered adventures. We, more than ever, are committed to continue to offer compelling opportunities for adventure travel where you can explore, make a difference, and have ball.

In that spirit, here’s a little more about WHY we do what we do.rafting

OUR PURPOSE AND PASSION IS TO:

INCREASE THE WELL-BEING OF THE PLANET AND INHABITANTS BY INSPIRING HUMAN POWERED ADVENTURE. It’s our company’s mission, we are committed to helping you get out and explore: from your backyard, to the farthest corners of our amazing planet. We believe in human-powered adventure. Trekking, cycling, kayaking, hiking, rafting, skiing—so many ways to connect, practice a craft, try something new. Ultimately, explore and feel alive.

MAKE ADVENTURE TRAVEL MORE AFFORDABLE. Let’s face it, adventure travel is often way overpriced. The average price per day of our competitors is often $350+. Our average price per day is around $150 or less. We believe that amazing adventures should be available to all. It’s not about being the cheapest, it’s about offering great value. We are committed to negotiating the best possible rates for you in order to lower the financial barrier to GO. New luxury is authenticity and access, not thread count and stars.

SUPPORT LOCAL ECONOMIES. Often in mass tourism, as much as 90% of trip costs go to a corporation operating outside the country visited. Adventure travel is the inverse, and we work hard to ensure that the lion’s share of trip costs go directly to the local economies and people we visit.

BE A FORCE FOR GOOD. We can vote with our dollars and support: sustainability, conservation and the idea of helping great places to visit also be great places to live. By working with smaller, local operators, we ensure that the money is going to local people and companies, who are on the front lines of protecting nature, culture, and place.

LASTLY,

Because, Awesome. This is not our job, it’s our vocation. We are part of a global tribe that believes that we need meaningful travel experiences more than ever and the context that we gain from our experiences makes our lives and that of those around us richer.

Join us. It is within your reach. For in the end, the only regret we will have, is having not gone.

“And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” Pico Iyer
