James Levelle


Many of us dream of adventure. James Levelle goes out into the wild and does adventure for real. James then turns his journeys into charismatic documentary television.

In September 2016 he found himself in Rio de Janeiro with nothing but a backpack and a video camera – without a penny in his pocket, no phone, no credit card, no money at all. Seventy two days later, after crossing six countries and travelling ten thousand kilometers he’d made it all the way to the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

His story is an inspiring tale of the kindness of strangers, of spontaneity, and of how to survive in life by improvising as you go. The entire brilliant epic journey was broadcast on Discovery Channel as Free Ride.

James Levelle Free Ride - adventurer speaker

James is director of the acclaimed Eco Crime Investigators for National Geographic, going undercover in China and Tibet to expose the international criminal trade in tiger skins and bone, and in SE Asia to lay bare the terrible ecological damage caused by the illegal logging industry.

James has climbed mountains with Bear Grylls and survived Siberia’s frozen wilds with Ed Stafford. And now James’s speaking is increasingly in demand. His inspiring stories explore the power of human relationships, overcoming adversity, the lessons we can learn from nature, and how a spirit of adventure has the potential to transform the way we see our world.
