Three thrilling tales of adventure in one exclusive gift-pack!
Available this week only, here's your chance to get your hands on three very different adventure travel films from three of the UK's best independent adventure filmmakers — and at a ridiculously discounted price you won't find anywhere else.
We'd like to suggest, of course, that this gift-pack would make a 'unique and memorable Christmas present' for friends and family. But we also know that you'll likely be 'borrowing' them back, come January... (We've all done it!)
Janapar: Love on a Bike
First in line is Tom Allen's Janapar: Love on a Bike, the award-winning story of a 3½ year bicycle journey across three continents with a rather unexpected love story running through it. Not just for vicarious adventurers, Tom's touching tale is absolutely one for all the family (with the occasional bit of bad language, mind).
Janapar has now played at more than 30 film festivals around the world, from Austria to Australia, as well as at screenings all over the UK.
Into The Empty Quarter
Second up is Into The Empty Quarter, Alastair Humphreys' and Leon McCarron's gruelling yet highly entertaining 1,000-mile slog across the Empty Quarter desert of Oman and the UAE. Following in the footsteps of Wilfred Thesiger, the pair take a real do-it-yourself approach to desert travel, building a four-wheeled cart to carry their supplies. As well as being tested to their physical limits, they find that Arabia has changed beyond recognition since Thesiger's original journey in this stunningly-shot and skilfully edited film.
Just back from the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival, the pair continue to tour the world with Into The Empty Quarter today.
Last but not least is Mondo Sahara, the latest opus from the undisputed overlord of DIY adventure travel film in the UK, Austin Vince, whose annual Adventure Travel Film Festival is one of the most talked-about events in the UK adventure calendar. Featuring a stunning original live soundtrack, this slapstick take on a road-trip movie follows Austin and a cast of fellow fun-loving adventure motorcycle travellers as they ride out of Europe into Africa's Sahara Desert, drifting far from civilization in search of unridden trails.
Not only that, but Austin's dedication to sharing the secrets of DIY motorcycle adventuring — both through the film and in the full colour 32-page booklet included with the DVD — will be sure to have you reaching for the nearest atlas by the time the credits roll.
This 3-pack DVD bundle is available now at the exclusive price of £19 + P&P.
That's a massive 54% discount compared to buying the three DVDs individually, and you'll only pay once for postage!
This offer is a direct collaboration between the filmmakers themselves. There's no middleman creaming off a profit. By taking action on this offer, you won't just be getting an unbeatable deal, you'll be directly supporting Tom, Alastair, Leon and Austin to continue creating inspiring adventure films.
Important: This is such a ridiculously good deal that we can barely afford to run it! As such, we'll be taking orders for one week only. You can place your order any time from Monday 17th November until midnight on Sunday 23rd November — but after that, this page will disappear forever.
Don't miss out!
Order now to avoid disappointment. Sales end at midnight on Sunday November 23rd (or when we run out of DVDs, whichever happens soonest).
This offer is available to UK customers this week only. It won't be coming back!
As a special incentive for Christmas, I'm offering cheap-as-chips deals on my two new DVDs - Into The Empty Quarter and Walking Home From Mongolia (for more info, click on the highlighted names.)
If you fancy sharing a bit of adventure this Christmas, then these shows might be just the ticket. They're equally a pretty good stocking filler for 'the person who has everything' (you know who you are...)
I'm happy to put in some personalised Christmas greetings too, in an effort to spread Christmas cheer and make this a one-stop present-sorting shop!
Here's what's on offer:
For UK customers only, there is a free HD download!
For those of you further afield, you can still buy the DVD here for £9.99 + postage, although time is running out to get delivery in time for Christmas, so please do so very soon!
Postage will be added on at checkout.

Some praise for Into The Empty Quarter:
A beautifully shot film of a bravely executed journey. Brings Thesiger’s journey bang up to date — laughs, tears and all. The most pointless adventure I’ve ever had the pleasure of following.
- Tom Allen, award-winning film-maker
Beautifully honest, funny and riddled with grit.
- Dave Cornthwaite, Adventurer
Congrats on an amazing and challenging expedition, and for sharing it so effectively through the film. I swear I could almost feel the grit and sand!
- Roz Savage, World Record Breaking Ocean Rower
Very much enjoyed 'into the empty quarter’ an engaging and inspiring old school british adventure - nice work!
