Secret Adventures bring you unusual and off grid adventures in London and beyond. These adventures are designed to generate a sense of exploration and wonder.
We like water, we like fire and we like to explore. Adventures so far have included swimming over to a secret island to wild camp around a fire, kayaking at night under Tower Bridge and Husky sledding in the arctic circle.
“It filled me with giddy child like excitement. You have nothing to lose but your urban hang ups” The Guardian on The Secret Island.
A community of adventurous souls who like to explore new places, meet new people, and lead a life less ordinary.

“It was like returning from Narnia. It was a bit of a risk. And in that, I rediscovered what I’d first loved about London” Huffington Post on The Secret Concert
We also organise and fund some very special adventures in partnership with local charities to help children escape the city. So, come on an adventure, have a great time and help fund some children’s adventures too.
Previous children’s adventures have included canoe adventures on the River Wye camping in tipis, canal boat adventures and camping adventures on a farm.
“These adventures are life-transforming for vulnerable children” Peter Callis. Youth Worker.
