It’s a new year, which means new adventures. And if you’re like us, you’re looking to plan your next adventure! When it comes to picking a destination, however, it can get tricky. That’s why we’re hosting a number of talks with Earth’s Edge, Ireland’s premier adventure travel company, to inspire your next destination!
Since 2007, Earth’s Edge has provided expeditions in some of the most notable locations world-wide. They are the only company in the world to provide an international guide and doctor on all expeditions while ensuring that group sizes stay
small to reduce environmental impact.
Coming up in January, we are hosting the following information evenings. Each talk starts in our South Great George’s Street store at 7:30 pm sharp with a slide presentation on the subject at hand, a question and answer session, some tips on the type of gear and kit needed and what’s more, all attendees get a 15% discount on the night!
