About the award

With this award we celebrate the most inspiring adventurers of our time. And you can help decide which of the nominees will win!

Via bike, camera, kayak, or even barefoot, the nominees of this year's award find their own unique path to adventure. They face new challenges and experience unforgettable moments. Whether they are crossing an entire country sans shoes, making first descents down wild waterways, or discovering another world far from their own from behind a camera lens, the adventurers of the 21st century are characterized by their curiosity, their courage, and their gift for sharing their personal experiences with us. These are stories that touch us and inspire us to seek and find our own adventures!

The 21st Century Adventurer Award is endowed with 10,000 Euro in prize money, which is given to the winner to help fund their next expedition.
