Envago: The First Marketplace for Adventure Travel is Here!
Envago is a free adventure travel app that allows those seeking adventures to search by category of adventure (Air, Earth, Water, Rock & Ice or Volunteer), listed activities or by map to access a range of providers meeting their needs. Adventure Planners can become verified within the app, then create a profile, events and adventures for people to buy.
“The Envago app will change the way we access and experience adventure” said Envago’s founder Lujaina Kharusi. “I want people to have choice and opportunity, whether they are seeking their next adventure or looking to utilise their passion, talent and experience to become verified as a planner with Envago. Our app is putting those small, independent planners on the map, and giving adventurers around the globe access to once in a lifetime experiences.”
