A micro-expedition into the great outdoors led by ex-Special Forces soldiers An invigorating hike through spectacular countryside with outstanding views The chance to experience the thrill of wild swimming An evening socialising, unwinding and sleeping under the stars 24 hours away from the hustle and grind of urban life Expert advice on kit and preparation for your adventure A unique opportunity to learn outdoor skills from experienced leaders The opportunity to connect with other like minded adventurers What Is A Microadventure? The concept of a microadventure was coined by the British explorer Al Humphreys as an antidote to our busy urbanised lives, by escaping into the simplicity and wilderness of the great outdoors. A microadventure is short and simple yet still exciting, challenging and rewarding. Our aim is to remove the barriers to experiencing the thrill of nature! No one to go with? Not a problem, you’ll meet plenty of friendly people. Don’t know where to go? We'll find great locations and give you a time and place to meet us. No idea on kit? We’ll tell you what you need and where to get it. Microadventures are the perfect way to learn new skills, connect with great people, give your mind and body a break and reboot the soul. Meet The Team - Simon & John Both former Royal Marine Commandos, our journey started in 2009 whilst serving with UK Special Forces. Working in a job that placed huge demands on the body and mind, and where second place could result serious injury or death, sparked a deep interest in human performance. Now our passion is sharing the lessons we have learned with as many people as possible, to help everyone achieve the best health they can. Drawing from expertise gained during our military careers we are also dedicated to creating bespoke, high quality training & experience packages that are fun and enriching. Between us we have traveled and worked across the globe, from patrolling under humid jungle canopies in Malaysia, climbing the High Tatras in Slovakia, to skiing the icy snowfields of Norway. FAQs Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event? You must be at least 18 years old to attend this microadventure. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? The meeting point is Wendover Train Station (HP22 6BT), a 50 minute direct train from London Marylebone. Alternatively you can drive and park at the station car park or nearby streets. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email: [email protected] What happens when we wild camp? The beautiful thing is it's completely unique every time depending on who comes along and what they bring! We have had fine wine tasting, sparklers, games, story telling and so on! You are welcome to bring drinks and anything you think will make the evening more fun! I don't have any kit, what should I do? You only need the most basic kit for wild camping. When you sign up we will send you a list of everything you need (it's not much!). You probably have some of it already, or perhaps you can borrow some, and we'll find you the cheapest way to get the rest. The great thing is once you have it you can go on unlimited adventures What if I don't have anyone to come with? Not a problem! You'll be in good company as plenty of people come on their own. Our microadventures are a great way to meet people and make new friends! Groups are obviously welcome too! Is food provided? No, you'll need to bring 24 hours worth of food, a lunch, dinner, breakfast and snacks if you would like them. We will cover everything to bring food wise in the emails we send you. Can I bring my dog? Well behaved dogs that socialise well with other dogs are welcome!

CONDÉ NAST TRAVELLER INVITES YOU TO AN EVENING WITH ALDO KANE, IN ASSOCIATION WITH RADISSON COLLECTION.  JOIN THE DAREDEVIL EXPLORER AT LONDON’S MAY FAIR HOTEL TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HIS ADVENTURES FOR THE MOST INTREPID TELEVISION SHOWS. There are some extreme outdoor types who do one thing very well, but then tend to do it over and over again, whether it’s walking across deserts or ascending precariously difficult mountain peaks. Aldo Kane, however, doesn’t fit into this category. The Scottish-born traveller served in the Royal Marines for a decade, seeing action in Iraq and the Middle East, before setting up his own gung-ho outfit to work with TV and movie teams in high-risk locations. He has guided a film crew with unflappable panache into an erupting volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo (and out again), negotiated with twitchy-fingered drug lords in South America, raced against Ed Stafford through the Borneo mangrove swamps, and accompanied naturalist Steve Backshall into uncharted territory, from the Arctic mountainscapes of Greenland to the Surinamese jungle. In a scientific experiment for the BBC’s Horizon series he was locked in an abandoned nuclear bunker for 10 days – a novel way in which to digitally detox – and in 2016 he set two world records rowing across the Atlantic Ocean. The May Fair, a Radisson Collection hotel, is just the sort of place you’d want to return to after a hairy experience in the wild. Located in the heart of London, it was opened by King George V in 1927 and now includes a beautiful spa and outdoor terrace bar, as well as the May Fair Kitchen restaurant serving Spanish-Italian small plates.                                                        6.30PM–8.30PM MONDAY 4 MARCH 2019                  THE DANZIGER SUITE AT THE MAY FAIR HOTEL, STRATTON STREET, LONDON W1J 8LT                        Tickets are £35 per person and include Champagne on arrival and a goodie bag. CONDÉ NAST TRAVELLER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO POSTPONE THE EVENT IF RENDERED NECESSARY BY ANY UNAVOIDABLE CAUSE. TICKETS WILL BE FULLY REFUNDED IN SUCH CASES. PARTICIPANTS MUST BE 18 OR OLDER.
