For adventure travellers of every genre
The game brings together adventure travellers of every genre – from hikers to bikers, climbers to divers, sailors to snowboarders and wildlife watchers to wing suiters – on the same playing field, and pits them against one another in friendly rivalry. The goal: to determine the Earth’s Number 1 Adventure Junky.
An initial 500+ adventures, from almost every country and culture have been hand-picked by the Adventure Junky team for their authenticity, sustainability and uniqueness of experience. Add to that a rapidly growing number of adventures drawn from players and destination partners. Adventures range from the softer, such as a Patagonia winery safari or foraging in the Sweden wilderness, to the extreme of summiting the seven volcanoes of Guatemala or a Favela tour in Rio.
Jämtland Härjedalen in a unique position
“Jämtland Härjedalen and the Nordic countries are in a unique position to be the European brand leader for adventure travel and a global force in this rapidly expanding market. The depth and authenticity of these experiences is unparalleled. Owning this space will require cross-border cooperation and marketing which focusses on strengths, rather than trying to be all things to all people. Adventure Junky is the ideal platform to launch such an approach, create real impact, economically and efficiently. This is an exciting initiative with significant potential,” says Nigel Malone, Director, Adventure Junky.
