On a mission to unearth the best local guides, hosts, & places to stay: Much Better Adventures is the online travel booking platform making it easier to live a more adventure-rich life. Now with a tribe of over 20,000 & sales of over £10m, they are poised to expand their reach & capture the market.
We started Much Better Adventures with a mission to unearth the world’s best local guides, hosts, and places to stay. We want to help more people discover the amazing experiences they offer, while helping passionate small businesses make a great living doing what they love, funnelling money into local economies and incentivising conservation.
Today, an idea has become a movement. We’re a fast growing tribe of over 20,000 like-minded people.
Together we've skied, hiked, kayaked, cycled, rafted, sup'd, sailed and dog sledded around the world, and generated over £10m in sales for local businesses.

The repeat metric is the key indicator of a product and service that fits the market, and we believe gives us a really strong loyal base to grow from.
We're moving from an era of mass tourism to mass-niche tourism. In an experience-hungry world, everyone is an adventurer seeking to do more with their free time. We assess the global spend on adventure, active and nature travel worldwide to be over £455bn, and to be growing 65%/year, with the UK along spending £18bn/year.
We believe that there is no established online platform dedicated to serving this market, yet.
