What are we all about?

Vespucci Adventures are made for people who want to do something more with their days than just stay indoors. People who know there’s more to life than phones and emails, people who want that buzz you get from spending a day outside, reconnecting with the world around you. But also to inspire and empower people who may not know these adventures are right on their doorsteps by making their escape as easy and accessible as possible. We want the go-getting, fresh-air-loving, tree-hugging wanderers of the world to pick up their maps and rediscover the great outdoors.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO…

The Vespucci Story

Vespucci Adventures evolved from our passion for long distance walking and cycling. Day to day worries fall by the wayside, the spirit being freed by the shared experience and sense of challenge. We want to inspire a new generation to follow in our footsteps by giving you all you need to get out there and to put together your own adventure.

Our Values

When it comes to curated walks, rides and other adventures, we want to be the independent source of ideas and inspiration that you can trust to deliver the experience you were expecting. The descriptions of our walks, rides and other adventures will be honest and balanced. We want you to pick those that are right for you. Wherever possible, walks, rides and other adventures will be accessible by public transport. Through inspiration and curation, we aspire to empower you to put together an adventure that you would not otherwise have done, that leaves you with a sense of achievement, wanting more and ready to recommend Vespucci Adventures to your friends.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY…

Looking after our key ingredient, nature.

“At Vespucci Adventures we are committed to making sure our products and events are sourced as responsibly as possible. Our maps and guides are both designed and produced here in the UK. The paper that we use comes from FCS forests. Wood products from FCS forests are not only renewable, but from forests that are managed responsibly.”

Alex, Our Founder.

Our Partners

Fjällräven hail from the small town of Örnsjöldsvik in Sweden, a place where mountains and forest meet the sea. Fjällräven is an outdoor clothing and equipment company that’s committed to making nature more accessible for everyone.

We became a partner of Ordnance Survey from the get-go, we share a common goal of striving to get the people of the UK outside. We are super proud to be recognised as one of their Premium Route Partners – quite simply we couldn’t do what we do without them.
