The exciting line-up for the annual expedition planning symposium,
, has just been announced. This unique weekend – at which up to 200 members of the public get the opportunity to talk to over
50 experts
representing every facet of the expedition world – takes place between Friday 23rd and Sunday 25th November at the
Royal Geographical Society
in London.
Jason Lewis
, who recently completed a 13 year human powered voyage around the world, will kick things off with an
illustrated talk
about his odyssey on Friday night with expedition founder
Stevie Smith
.Advice on planning your expedition dominates Saturday’s proceedings: everything from raising money to choosing equipment will be covered. Sunday includes workshops dedicated to field research and communicating your discoveries.

Whether you’re travelling by foot, vehicle, bike, ski, canoe or even horseback to the poles, jungles, deserts, mountains, rivers or oceans, Explore will be able to help you turn your expedition dream into reality.

If you’re not sure what expedition you want to do, you can even sign up for a free ‘Inspire Me!’ session on Saturday morning. This is the perfect opportunity to kick some ideas around one-on-one with an experienced expeditioner.

Why not take a quick peek at the

preliminary programme
? And if you want a flavour of what to expect during the weekend, check out an excerpt from the
that was made about the 30th anniversary of Explore last year. You can register

to book your place.

For the second year running, I’m in the privileged position of sitting on the panel for cycling expeditions. So if you are attending, do come up and say hello.
