If this hobby interests you then this blog might be what you are looking for.”  READ MORE

[Mahindra adventure]

Mahindra Adventure is a unique experiential marketing unit of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. It started with our first off-road outing in 1996 when we started with a couple of events a year. With the inception of Mahindra Adventure in 2011, we truly began perfecting the art of getting lost. Since then every year, we’ve been giving people trips of a lifetime, be it the single-day off-road adventure – Great Escape or the multi-day expeditions to the most beautiful places in India and abroad.

We pioneered “the arrive and drive” concept and to help us bring you the Mahindra experience, we maintain a fleet of over 100 vehicles stationed all over the country. With over 7 expeditions spanning the length and breadth of the country, there’s no driving holiday worth its salt that we haven’t covered. Tour the Himalayas with the Monastery Escape or take the paths less known at the Spiti Escape. Get treated like maharajas in royal Rajasthan with the Royal Escape or cross borders by road in the TriNation Escape. If fun is on your mind, the Authentic Goa is just for you. If exploring is your mantra, try the Authentic NorthEast. And if dirt is your game, the Great Escape and Off-Road Trophy are your fix. There’s something for everyone !”      Select your adventure HERE

Their goal was to document their journey up more than 150K vertical feet of rock, ice, and glaciated technical terrain from New Mexico to Alaska. They have had Goal Zero products with them almost since the beginning and we have been proud to power their journey.  Follow their journey HERE

Discover SCOTLAND for yourself

Discover SCOTLAND for yourself

[Matador Network]

“When you think of Scotland, what immediately comes to mind? Fairytale castles? Maybe that famous tartan fabric? Literary titans? The renowned universities? You’d be right about all that; however, there’s a lot more to Scotland than what makes it into pop culture.

In fact, we recently went to Scotland and unearthed a startling secret. This country is home to some of Europe’s most epic outdoor adventures. Sure, Edinburgh’s a blast and you’ve gotta do the castle tours, but what really blew us away was the endless outdoor activities: mountain biking lush woodlands, fishing storybook waters, ziplining forest canopies, and tons more. Check out this well-kept secret, and you may never think of Scotland the same way again.” Read more HERE
