Charlie Krarup

Managing Director at Adventure Base

Registration from: 11:45am

Lunch: 12:30pm

Charlie Krarup, managing director of Adventure Base, joined us in April to tell us how "life is better when you spend time in the mountains."

Event Roundup

The NCBC audience was captivated by Charlie, as he told us how his travel business, based in Chamonix in the French Alps, takes ordinary people on extraordinary adventures. Clients including Sir Richard Branson and Princess Beatrice have scaled the heights of Mont Blanc on bespoke charity or corporate mountain expeditions.

So why do they put themselves through the pain and harsh reality of the mountains? Well, it’s simple...

The opportunity to be part of something truly memorable. Great people, on an amazing adventure of a lifetime. It’s like running a business... The blood, sweat and tears are worth it and any mistakes along the way make reaching the summit even more rewarding.
