Take part in the challenge of a lifetime

Open challenges

Imagine celebrating your next birthday by conquering a summit, commemorating your anniversary at the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu, or marking your retirement by joining a dog sledding trip in the Arctic Circle. With a wide selection of challenges around the world, there is something to suit everyone. You could also take part in a challenge closer to home, the UK is full of spectacular scenery for you to discover, including UNESCO world heritage sites and world famous cities. Find out more about UK challenges.

Open Challenges offer you the chance to take part in a huge variety of activities in the UK and overseas, whilst raising vital funds for the Brooke. We work with professional tour operators who offer challenges at varying difficulty levels and prices.
