EC Stories London - Inflated Ambitions: Rafting in Afghanistan
As part of our commitment to the #AdventureRevolution, we host regular social events where a speaker from the EC community shares their latest adventure with us. Come along to meet like-minded people and get inspired! Currently in London and Bristol, we hope to be able to spread to more cities in the future. Everyone is welcome but tickets must be bought in advance from In 2015, Jonathan Rider and Edmund Le Brun rafted down the Oxus River in Afghanistan from its source in the Pamir Mountains to the border with Tajikistan. Having never rafted before the trip, Jonathan and Edmund’s talk hopes to show that, despite its difficulties, Afghanistan is a country with enormous potential for adventure. With the threat of a road from China being built through these mountains, this talk will also provide a brief – perhaps final – glimpse of a pristine landscape at an important crossroads in its history. They hope to shine a light on the history, people and animals who inhabit this wild landscape, and ask what impact a road could have on this fragile environment’s future.

What we're about

Public Group

Join adventures with likeminded people: from kayaking, surfing and wild swimming weekends to ski & watersports holidays and overseas expeditions.

We have groups all around Britain so all our events fill up and will run. We don't use Meetup much so don't be put off if there are small numbers here we get an average of 20 people on each weekend (max 24).

If you've not come on an EC event yet, they're very informal and friendly. We've got singles, couples and sets of friends coming along, adventure professionals and complete beginners - what we all share is the desire for more adventure

FYI our main website ( has much more information on us and the adventures we offer: (


NB We've only use MeetUp a little so if an event 'looks' empty here, its not, all our weekends and events sell out well in advance - check out our main website to book
