-- Fancy mountain biking in the mountains of Afghanistan, rafting the rapids at the base of the infamous K2 Mountain or tackling the white water of South Sudan and Madagascar? All this, and more, is now possible with Secret Compass - the global expeditionary service. The company, founded by two former British Army Officers, is pioneering a range of adventure sport expeditions in some of the remotest and most extreme environments on earth, looking to take the concept of ‘adventure’
to a whole new level.
Former Parachute captain and co-founder Tom Bodkin believes that pioneering adventure sports in these extreme locations will take the adrenaline rush to a whole new level and create a extra dimension to these sports. ‘For many years mountain biking and white water rafting have been confined to relatively well known tourist areas’, says Bodkin, ‘by taking people to incredible remote environments such as the Wakhan Corridor (Afghanistan)
, we aim to combine the inherent thrill of mountain biking with jaw-dropping scenery and an unique cultural experience.’
Secret Compass’s motto is ‘achieve the extraordinary in the world’s wildest places’ and these expeditions make that aim clear. Indeed the ambition is to increase the range of adventure sport expeditions with one exciting plan being the development of ski touring in Central Asia and Latin America; ‘the mountains of Himalayas and the Andes offer a vast range of unexplored ski touring possibilities’
argues Bodkin, himself an avid skier, ‘and this is an area which we are currently looking to develop.’ It is clear that Secret Compass is intent on pushing the boundaries of adventure travel, something which makes them one to watch for the future.
