Updated: List of current British adventurers


A question I get a lot is where did I get the inspiration to drop everything and set off on this crazy 18,000km solo run through the Americas. After thinking long and hard it became very apparent – I am British and British people LOVE exploring – always have and hopefully always will. I started thinking about all the adventurers that I follow and am inspired by and it dawned on me they are so many current ones who are doing incredible things. That led me to realise that there are probably loads we never hear about.

So despite the fact I have quite a lot on my plate at the moment I thought I would try and compile a list of current British adventurers and see what it looked like. If you would like to suggest some more then please email me their name, website and twitter page. My email is jamieramsay@live.co.uk.

Below is where I have got to – lets try and get a definitive list together!

    Hi Jamie,

    I think you should add Robin Hanbury-Tenison to your list… everyone can find and support him here at http://www.robinsbooks.co.uk doing incredible feats in this, his 80th year, having co-founded the unique Survival International charity.

    Not only that, but he’s also very handsome and a thoroughly nice guy of course!

    As are you I suspect!
