School for Explorers 

In a recent article in the Independent, Robert Twigger points out that watching too much television can give the idea that there is nowhere left in the world to explore. You can easily get the impression in one evening, writes Twigger, that you have gone right round the globe. Or even twice, if they're repeating Michael Palin.

However, Robert Twigger passionately believes that exploration is far from being dead and eloquently illustrates what a small percentage of the planet has actually been visited and documented; arguing that the growth in adventure tourism is responsible for a surge in DIY exploration.

To answer this growing interest, he has co-founded the Explorer School, where adventurers are offered a unique travel experience, combining learning with a genuine expedition to little visited and unrecorded parts of the world. The aim being to equip individuals with the skills necessary to organise their own trips.
