It started with a raging river, a kayak and a passion. Now more than 17 years since first really taking to whitewater, Ben has now kayaked and explored some of the finest rivers on the planet. Not content with keeping these amazing trips to himself he established AdventureX in 2005 so that he could share these adventures and experiences with others. Since then life has been a hectic but very rewarding mix of organising and running kayaking, rafting, mountain biking and trekking trips to a host of Worldwide destinations.
