In what has been an evolving and challenging time globally, we have decided to postpone our Adventure Sponsorship program. 

Our priority is your wellbeing. We want everyone to stay healthy and safe, and at the moment this means observing ongoing developments in travel restrictions and keeping a respectful distance from one another. We understand this is disappointing, but we look forward to resuming the program as soon as we can. 

Kind Regards,

The Kathmandu Team

What is the Summit Club Adventure Sponsorship Program?

At Kathmandu, we aim to inspire and equip the adventurer in all of us.

By providing you with Kathmandu gear  from clothes and shoes right through to bags and accessories  an Adventure Sponsorship helps you to challenge yourself to an outdoor adventure or project that has a positive impact. 

Summit Club Adventure Sponsorship

Our documentary series, Finding Frontiers, tells the stories of those who live and breathe purpose-driven adventure – from one man’s crossing of Greenland’s vast ice cap by foot to the youngest woman to have run the 4 Deserts Grand Slam. Take a glimpse into their worlds and find inspiration for your next adventure.
