Would you pack a bag and go wherever we asked you to? Would you give up modern comforts for weeks at a time? Would you say ‘yes’ to things you’ve never said ‘yes’ to before?
Welcome to The Greatest Adventure on Earth, a 3-year global scavenger hunt designed to bring you to the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring places on the planet.
Each year, you’ll visit a different continent, completing mental and physical challenges as you search for clues that slowly reveal a hidden route to the $1 million prize.
Along the way, you’ll explore new cities and countries, sample local cuisine and culture, and immerse yourself in natural and historic points of interest. And that’s just the beginning.
The call to adventure is the point in a person’s life when they are first given notice that everything is going to change, whether they know it or not.
Cairo or Casablanca? Denpasar or Dubrovnik? Medellín or Montreal? The Greatest Adventure on Earth could take you anywhere. To unravel the mystery, you’ll need to solve a series of cryptic puzzles. Once your destination has been revealed, you’ll plan and book your travel.
During your 2-3 week trip, you’ll explore new cities and countries, sample local cuisine and culture, and immerse yourself in natural and historic points of interest. Each experience will be paired with physical and mental challenges you’ll need to complete in order to move forward.
Along the way, you’ll collect clues that are vital to the hunt. Some will disclose new destinations you must travel to. Others will reveal secret side missions that lead to incredible prizes. At the conclusion of each trip, you’ll receive a special artifact that will be instrumental in your search for $1 million.
The $1 million prize will not be found until year 3, but there is plenty of treasure to uncover along the way — $100,000 worth in year 1, and $250,000 worth in year 2. Secret side missions will also reveal themselves when you least expect them. Of course, the real treasure is the journey itself.
The cradle of humanity. A kaleidoscope of lush
jungles, sprawling deserts, rugged mountains, and vibrant cities. It’s impossible to sum up Africa in a few short sentences, but if it’s
authentic adventure you seek, look no further. From night safaris on the Serengeti to overland treks to the Skeleton Coast, there is no shortage of stories to write yourself into.
The cradle of civilization. A sprawling supercontinent harboring 70% of the world’s population. Eurasia is a land of contrasts—it is both classical and modern, secular and spiritual, enduring and ever-changing. If it’s history you crave, you’re in the right place(s). From medieval bourgs in Bosnia to sacred ashrams in India, there are infinite ways to time travel.
The cradle of discovery. An ongoing experiment in human possibility and progress. The Americas remain, in many ways, the final frontier. Leave the magnetic megacities behind, and you will still find yourself in raw, unspoiled wilderness. From the labyrinthine canyons of the American West to the cloud forests of The Andes, there are boundless opportunities to lose yourself.
World travel is an invaluable experience, but it comes at a cost. That’s why you’ll be participating in hands-on environmental projects each year. They are designed to offset your carbon emissions, and to give back to the communities we are privileged enough to visit.
You will join efforts to bring renewable energy to remote villages and communities, creating jobs and improving livelihoods by providing clean, green power to homes and workplaces.
You will join efforts to recover single use plastic from beaches and waterways, tackling the scourge of ocean plastic while reinvigorating tourism in communities that rely on it.
You will join efforts to plant and preserve trees vital to the Amazonian ecosystem, safeguarding endangered wildlife and protecting indigenous communities that call it home.
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
A la carte or all in? There are advantages to commitment, but we invite you to choose your own adventure(s).
