We spoke to over 100 of the world’s leading adventurers and distilled their experience into
5 crucial themes that are the DNA behind every IGO.

I – CHALLENGE

It has to be demanding.
We evolve through struggle and the euphoria
directly correlates to the toughness of the challenge.
 

II – WILDERNESS

Proper adventure is done in the wild.
On an IGO you will be largely self-sufficient, responsible for your own welfare,
and removed from civilisation for the race duration.
 

III – DIVERSITY

The challenge needs to be varied.
IGO will push you in different ways and demand a wide array of strengths.
Stories are a crucial legacy of adventure and IGO will build a library of them. 
 

IV – CAMARADERIE

People are bound by shared experience: ‘The Dunkirk Spirit’.
Even solo circumnavigations are built upon a crucial team of driven facilitators.
For IGO, teamwork is everything.

V – PHILANTHROPY

We’ll be judged by what we give.
IGO donates a percentage of profits to great causes, awards scholarships
to some truly inspirational people and assists teams in their own fundraising.
