For decades many of our team forged their own unique pathways in the fast-changing outdoor industry. Today this collective creativity, pooled expertise and fearless determination help us to create KENDAL MOUNTAIN – a business based on modern values, respect, care, and inclusivity and diversity – all fuelled by a common spirit of adventure that enables us to stage the world’s premier cultural event for the ‘outdoor’ sector.

We work with pioneering and leading brands, the world's top adventurers alongside driven creatives, to share all things 'outdoor' across our multi-platform channels.

Our motto and mantra is ‘Share the Adventure’ – we do believe adventures are most definitely better when shared!


Each year after the Festival, we packaged up the spirit of ‘Kendal’ - as we genuinely love taking our stories on the road! Whether across the UK or internationally, our audiences return each year to enjoy incredible film curations and remarkable guest speakers.


The ultimate social gathering for all those who love the outdoors – taking place at the gateway to The Lake District National Park each November.


Pure inspiration on-demand, 24/7. Catch our incredible adventure content when and where it suits you best!
