Check out this quick highlights vid from our 2023 festival for a taster of what to expect at the Armchair Adventure Festival 2024! Music by the magnificent Echo Town!
ADVENTURE FOR ALL
In 2020, we were the world’s first 100% live virtual adventure festival, connecting more than 40,000 armchair adventurers from around the world at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, we're an in-person celebration of adventure travel a-top a beautiful Cornish hill in Mount Edgcumbe Country Park. Join us and expect talks from world leading adventurers, adventurous activities to get involved in and fantastic live music.
"One of the Top 10 Wild Festivals for 2022"
AAF founders Matt and Reece, hold the unique Guinness World Record for the longest ever journey by scooter and sidecar. In total, they travelled 34,000 miles through 35 countries and 5 continents all by scooter and sidecar.
THE SIDECAR GUYS
Most activities at the Armchair Adventure Festival are included in the ticket price. We do have to charge a small fee for some of the activities but we subsidise these to make it as affordable as possible. Below are a selection of available activities.
DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT....
Congrats on a mega weekend I thought it was brilliantly run with mega guest speakers. Catch you next year...
Had an amazing time at The Armchair Adventure Festival. The venue, speakers, vendors and crowd were all fantastic. It was a cracking weekend full of laughs and good times.
Huge thanks to both Matt and Reece for making this festival look so effortless! We know you worked your socks off! Beautifully put together, fabulous venue and awesome speakers and bands. Can't wait for next year and more inspiring stories.
The first live The Armchair Adventure Festival was a brilliant weekend of speakers, music, activities and lots of great people.
ADVENTURE FOR GOOD
We believe in using our platform for good causes. That’s why in two years we have raised over £13,500 for charity through our events. At the Armchair Adventure Festival 2021 our charity partner was Unseen UK, an anti-slavery charity based in the South West while we also donated £1000 to Secure Forests CIC who were able to purchase an 'acoustic sensor' that would help protect the rain forest in Belize.
We’re also conscious about the impact adventure travel has on the environment and because we know our festival will inspire many more people to travel internationally, we’re pledging to plant a tree for every ticket we sell. In 2021 we planted 500 trees.
