Whether it is climbing a mountain in the Alps, skiing in Colorado or going for a hike just 30 minutes away from home, adventure-seekers can find what they are looking for on Explore-Share, a Belgian startup transforming into one of the largest online booking platforms for guided outdoor adventures.

Founded in 2015, the startup has so far gained more than 10k listings in over 70 countries. Its marketplace is turning adventure tourism into an online industry, allowing its users to book unique experiences anywhere in the world in just a few clicks, from their phones.

Tours booked through the platform vary substantially in style, activity and duration – from classics like the ascent of Mont Blanc, to climbing famous volcanoes like Cotopaxi in Ecuador, to guided freeride skiing holidays in the best resorts in the US and via ferrata in the Alps and the Dolomites.

After successfully closing an investment round of €1 million funded by private investors in Belgium, Explore-Share is now ready to embark on the second stage of its development. These fresh funds will allow the company to continue expanding its guide community and listings, invest in new marketing channels and further develop the platform to help guides in their daily management of clients & bookings.
