Take the Summer Solstice Microadventure Challenge with Alastair Humphreys

Posted on 02/06/2017


You know that outdoor trip you’ve been planning for ages but keep putting off? Now you’ve got no excuses.

ViewRanger has teamed up with microadventure king Alastair Humphreys to create a month-long Summer Solstice Microadventure Challenge encouraging people all around the world to get out of their comfort zone, head outdoors and explore somewhere new – and we want YOU to join us.

Read all about the challenge here: www.viewranger.com/microadventure

We aren’t talking about epic outdoor trips that costs thousands of pounds and take months of planning. We’re talking about microadventures - fun, short, local and cheap trips you can squeeze into weekday evenings or a few hours on a weekend afternoon. Grab a few mates, walk up a hill, swim in a river, sleep under the stars - do whatever you want, wherever you want. We just want you to get outdoors between June 10th and July 9th, then tell us all about it.

Win great prizes

The most exciting and original microadventures – chosen by Alastair Humphreys – will win prizes from top outdoor brands including Haglofs, Alpkit, CASIO and CAT. To be in with a chance of winning, simply take a photograph of your microadventure using ViewRanger Skyline augmented reality, then share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #microadventure between June 10th and July 9th.

The competition is open to anyone in the world, and you can post entries as many times as you like. The final categories for prizes have yet to be decided – that part is up to you and how creative you are with your microadventure. It could be the most epic sleeping spot, most creative outdoor meal, or best spot to hang a hammock - so come up with an amazing idea, then share your experience with us. You can keep track of your own submissions and what other people are doing on this page, and Alastair will pick the prize winners after the competition closing date on July 9th.
