Everytime you purchase a policy through Evergreen we donate up to 25% of our earnings back to nature, wildlife and animal charities. Partnering with Large Minority is a natural fit for us and between us we can raise much needed funds to support the tree planting project in Sri Lanka.
Large Minority offers you adventurous, team-based competitive group travel experiences that give back. In addition to having the time of your life on our adventure challenges, you’ll be contributing to the lives of locals and the environment. 10% of every dollar we get goes straight back to our flagship charity projects in the countries we visit.
How do our Adventure Challenges work?
During the days, you’ll be set checkpoints to reach and challenges to complete, and it’s up to you and your teammates to come up with the best way to get stuff done. Think of our Adventure Challenges as a down-to-earth version of The Amazing Race. During the evenings, you’ll be toasting your success and swapping the day’s stories with your fellow adventurers from all over globe. And boy, will there be stories.
“Everyone I tell about my time on the Cambo Challenge, even those who have been to Cambodia, are jealous of it. It’s quite literally the adventure of a lifetime.” Lianne Dawes
The Challenges are broken up into various legs. Each team gets a road map and a daily navigational sheet, which they’ll use to get from A to B each day. The winning team isn’t necessarily the team that finishes first, it’s the one that accumulates the most Challenge points. How do you get points? By nailing various challenges, we set you along the way. That means that racing is not really encouraged. In fact it’s actively discouraged. There’s no need to set a new speed record. We’ll provide support when you need it, but essentially you’ll be in charge of your own adventure.
“I’ve been travelling for over 40 years, and the Lanka Challenge is far and away the most incredible and rewarding trip I’ve ever done. The most admirable aspect was the ‘light touch’ achieved – never bossy or prescriptive, just gentle guidance and warning.” Ross Letten
We believe that adventure should be combined with some comfort so we like to mix up our accommodation. After a full day of dirty adventures we treat you (from time to time) to some amazing boutique hotels. We also build from scratch incredible campsites at national parks and temples, and for your convenience include your breakfasts and dinners throughout our adventure challenges.
We take your safety seriously, so we organize all of the Challenge logistics & legal stuff (i.e support team, ambulance or medic, mechanics, luggage trucks, permits, etc.) We also include emergency & medical travel insurance for the duration of the Challenge.
Do you have what it takes?
There are plenty of reasons to get up from that couch and embark on an adventure. Active holidays give you the opportunity to reinvigorate yourself and view life from a brand new perspective. All at once, you can challenge yourself, improve your physical and mental health while feeding that hungry sense of wanderlust.
Adventure travel teaches you how to deal with the unexpected, to adapt to various situations, and upon returning home again, you’ll have a profound sense of achievement. When you go on a genuinely life-changing trip, you don’t come back the same person. You’re usually stronger, more confident, and are rocking a pretty excellent tan. It sounds like a cliché, but it’s true: when you venture out, good things happen. That’s what life-changing adventure challenges are all about. Do you have what it takes?
