The Explorers Club – The Most Prestigious Adventurers In The World

Have a thirst for travel that goes beyond the norm? If so then this might just be the club for you.

The Explorers Club is a made up of passionate travelers and adventurers from around the world. Over 100 years old, this elite group encourages explorations of land, sea, air and space and promotes research and education in physical, natural and biological sciences.

A good portion of the 20th century’s most important discoveries were made by Explorers Club members. Sir Edmund Hillary - the first man to climb to the summit of Everest and Neil Armstrong - the first man on the moon are just a few of the names you might recognize.

Members of the club are connected by their common desire and interest in discovering the unknown and their specialities are extremely diverse. From undersea explorations, desert trekkers and animal enthusiasts to mountain climbers, astronauts and multi continent cyclists, their adventures span the globe.
