Justine CurgenvenA huge congratulation goes to Justine Curgenven who was just named as one of the UK's Top 20 Adventures by the Telegraph! And the only kayaker to boot!

When it comes to adventure, Britain really does rule. From the last great firsts of the previous century to modern exploration, we're at the forefront. But, who are the greatest living adventurers in the country? Some may be household names, while others have achieved incredible feats but not the fame. Our main criteria? Those who have made genuine firsts or pioneering journeys.

Curgenven is one of the world's top sea kayakers. In 2007, she successfully paddled 1,700 miles around New Zealand's South Island.
