Charlie Walker speaker

Charlie Walker

London, UK

Fresh talent on the exploration scene

Cycled 43,000 miles through Europe, Africa and Asia

Named "Blogger of the Year" by the Association of Independent Tour Operators (2013)

Charlie Walker is a British adventurer, travel writer and keynote speaker. After a stint on a national newspaper, he spent 4.5 years cycling 43,000 miles through 60 countries in Europe, Asia and Africa, the equivalent of twice around the world.

A fresh talent on the adventurer scene, Charlie has walked 1,000 miles solo across the Gobi desert and ridden a horse 600 miles through the Mongolian steppe. In 2014 he descended a little known tributary of the Congo river dodging crocodiles, hippos and rapids along the way.

His expeditions are a combination of physical endeavour, cultural discovery and existential exploration. He has survived an ill-equipped winter in Tibet, lived through an Ethiopian mob attack and cycled across the Sahara twice. However, his biggest challenges have been within himself; he believes that when one sets themselves a seemingly impossible task, the most important question is not how to stick at it but why.

He was voted “Blogger of the Year” in 2013 by the Association of Independent Tour Operators, and his writing and photography has appeared in numerous papers and magazines including The Times, The Daily Express, Wanderlust and Sidetracked. Charlie is currently writing his first book, sharing his remarkable experiences of the trials and tribulations of exploration.

Our Comment

"During his expeditions, Charlie's ethos was to embrace opportunism, travel the world on a shoestring and challenge himself both physically and mentally. Sharing the lessons learnt from these inspirational journeys, his tailored talks are imbued with dry humour and plenty of anecdotes about overcoming adversity."
