Some of the most inspiring explorers from around the world

About the Top Explorer List

The Top Explorer List honours inspiring and accomplished explorers, adventurers, and athletes. They come from a variety of countries and disciplines. Being a Top Explorer is a recognition of achievement and comes with benefits such as additional exposure and recommendations to our sponsors and their own curated Explorer Profile.

What is needed to be a Top Explorer?

While all Top Explorers have achieved extraordinary goals, from climbing the highest mountains, rowing all oceans, or running across continents, a key evaluation component is the ability of the explorers to inspire others.

What is the benefit of being a Top Explorer?

Top Explorers can also benefit from additional exposure towards and consideration by our partners and further sponsors that seek out inspiring ambassadors. 
We often get approached by sponsors, who seek for talented adventurers to work with. The Top Explorers are the ones we recommend and support in creating partnerships.

Furthermore, their official placement on the Top Explorer List can be used in their communication, and marketing as a batch of recognition and achievement. 

What are the Explorer Profiles?

As a Top Explorer, you will get an Explorer Profile, which will be run and maintained by the World Explorers Collective.
These profiles can be used by the Explorers to showcase achievements, media appearances, promote upcoming adventures and show high-quality images.

I like to have an Explorer Profile as well. Can anyone get a profile?

Currently, Explorer Profiles are restricted to Top Explorers, however, it is possible to apply to be on the Top Explorer List and with that get an Explorer Profile.
