Impossible adventures, made possible.
Large Minority exists to provide you with the best gosh-darned adventure challenges in the world! From driving tuk-tuks across Sri Lanka and Cambodia to navigating Colombia’s Amazon River in a canoe and island hoping in the Philippines, we make the surreal, real. We’ve put in the hard graft and organised everything for you. All you have to do is turn up, get in and drive. Checking a map every now and then is encouraged, but ultimately optional.
“Everyone I tell about my time on the Cambo Challenge, even those who have been to Cambodia, are jealous of it. It’s quite literally the adventure of a lifetime.” Lianne Dawes
During the days, you’ll be set checkpoints to reach and challenges to complete, and it’s up to you and your teammates to come up with the best way to get shit done. Think The Amazing Race, minus the TV cameras and annoying presenters. During the evenings, whether you’re camping next to a remote lake or nestling in to a boutique hotel, you’ll be toasting your success and swapping the day’s stories with your fellow adventurers. And boy, will there be stories.
“I’ve been travelling for over 40 years, and the Lanka Challenge is far and away the most incredible and rewarding trip I’ve ever done. The most admirable aspect was the ‘light touch’ achieved – never bossy or prescriptive, just gentle guidance and warning.” Ross Letten
Our trips are adventure challenges. They’ll challenge you mentally and physically, but there’ll be enough help and support along the way to get you over the line. And the best part? Our challenges are designed to benefit the countries we visit. We make sure our trips give more to the locals than they take, so you can rest assured that your kickass adventure is having a direct, positive impact on the communities you’ll pass through.
We believe that adventure should be combined with comfort. So after a full day of dirty driving or sailing we pamper you from time to time at some of the finest boutique hotels and resorts. We also build from scratch incredible campsites at national parks (toilets and showers included) and for your convenience include your breakfasts and dinners throughout the adventure challenges.
