Why Cookson?

Adventure is in our DNA

For us, it’s more than an interest. More than a passion. It’s a state of mind, born from a founder who has been there and done it.

Before he founded Cookson Adventures, Henry escaped the familiar, swapping the rat race for the remarkable…

Racing 360 miles to the Magnetic North Pole. And winning. Kite-skiing 1,100 miles to the Pole of Inaccessibility just to find a statue of Lenin left there in 1958. Learning his trade as a guide in Alaska and Africa.

All achieved because of a few key values. Curiosity. A touch of irreverence. Daring to be different.

It started with Henry and lives on through Cookson Adventures.

Experiences shaped by you

Likes. Dislikes. Passions. Curiosities. We want to know it all.

We don’t start with someone else’s itinerary. Or an off-the-shelf route.

We start with a blank sheet of paper, creating a unique adventure based entirely around you.

We end with an incomparable experience that challenges the most seasoned traveller.

Expert knowledge makes it possible

Archaeologists. Astronomers. Anthropologists. Marine biologists. The list goes on.

It’s amazing what can be achieved when people come together.

We know it takes a team of world experts to satisfy a truly curious mind.

Whether it’s being the first to take a submersible to Antarctica or spotting blue whales in the Pacific, together with our network of experts, we outsmart obstacles and turn boundaries into opportunities.

Finding the new. Every single day.

There’s always something new to discover. New ways of doing things.

It’s an appetite that never dies. A feeling that never gets old.

Every day, our travel specialists go in search of something different, gaining access to the world’s most elusive locations and experiences.

10 years and counting…

Year after year, our knowledge becomes broader and deeper. More doors are opened.

It’s how for over a decade, we continue to give our clients experiences unlike anything they’ve experienced before.
