Kuoni launches adventure hub to 'keep spirit of travel alive'

Kuoni has launched a new adventure hub to 'keep the spirit of worldwide travel alive' during lockdown.

Created in partnership with Hodder & Stoughton publishing, the hub features work by TV presenters and explorers Simon Reeve, Levison Wood and Megan Hine, who are  sharing the stories from their books about their adventures around the world.

People will be able to download free chapters from their books, listen to podcasts on soundcloud and view short video clips.

Simon Reeve, who has made television programmes around the globe from Australia to the Indian Ocean, is a long-time ambassador for Kuoni and recorded a special message for hub viewers.

Simon has shared some of the stories from his life in his book Step-by-Step and the adventure hub allows people to read or listen to some of the most memorable moments of his career.   

Levison Wood, whose latest adventure Walking With Elephants, trekking alongside elephants on their annual migration across Botswana, is showing on Channel 4 and detailed in his new book The Last Giants, shares insight from his epic expeditions walking in the Himalayas, the Americas and Arabia.   

Megan Hine shares insight about acting as consultant for private individuals and on television shows around the world including Bear Grylls: Mission Survive and Running Wild and her experience taking television crews to extreme and beautiful places they didn't even know existed.

Kuoni CEO Derek Jones said: "We may not be able to travel right now, but we want to continue to inspire people to have adventures when it's safe to travel again.

"Over the years Simon Reeve has become a great friend to us at Kuoni and a well-known face on our television screens, sharing the light and shade of destinations around the world.  

"Along with Levison Wood and Megan Hine, we're sharing some of their stories which will we hope will bring some adventure to our life in lockdown."
