The story

The inspiration for Adventure Honey came during a wild 24 hours in the Middle East. Having witnessed the extreme poverty amongst tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan, Adventure Honey founder Chris Ball set off on a mission to kayak the length of the Dead Sea – south to north.

After a long day paddling hyper-saline water in 50+ degree heat, Chris hit the northern tip of the Dead Sea in darkness. As he pulled the kayak out of the water, night suddenly turned to day as a flare lit the night sky. Ahead were 20 M-16s aggressively pointed at Chris’ head. Behind these lethal weapons were 20 angry Israeli commandos ready to take out a suspected terrorist threat!

In 24 hours, there’d been two sparks of inspiration:

  • Help people in extreme poverty.
  • Help people discover wild adventures (legally!)

Mission: For every person that answers the call to go outside their comfort zone and realise where awesome happens, we hear you. For every person who wants to be a part of the solution to the problems of the world, we hear you.
