Urban Challenger is an app/card deck with engaging travel challenges and hands-on activities for exploring cities in a fun and novel way. Take on a challenge and get tidbits, maps and useful links in the app along the way.
You can still keep up a fitness regime while travelling, so do up your laces and take part in some of our urban races! Why walk around the city when you can climb, cycle, or swim? Athlete
It’s the faces we see and the conversations we have that we remember most from our time on the road. Want to break the ice and get to know the people around you while having fun?
Take a risk, no matter how small, and you’ll get something back… even if it’s just an adrenalin rush! To win these challenges you will need all your chutzpah. Do you have what it takes?
If you wander into the unknown, you never know where you’ll end up... but for this character, that’s the point! These challenges will show you a new city hidden within the one you know.
Take a trip back in time to find out what life was like in the city. Who says history is the stuff of the past? Our scavenger hunts will help you track down pieces of it in the present.
Opportunities to get creative can be found anywhere if you know where to look. In these challenges, you’ll let your inner muse guide you through the city. Go on: express yourself!
When the real world vanishes at the end of each day, we remake the night in the shapes of our dreams. To this character, every celebration can be a revelation… so, party on!
Go into the green with this character and you’ll find the best places in town to let your soul breathe. When was the last time that you dove into a lake or sat by a bonfire?
Get a taste for the local cuisine, learning how to prepare some of its specialties as you go. Send your sense of taste and smell on a round-the-world adventure!
Each challenge starts with a mission briefing which gives useful information.
We’ll take you through the challenge step by step. Each step will give you tips and tricks to help you get the most out of doing the challenge.
Here you’ll find all the information that you might need along the way: tidbits, useful links and maps.
Our challenges will help you find hidden sights and landmarks that are far from the tourist trail.
“We had literally never had so much fun exploring a city.”

“A great range of activities. I’d never have thought of half of them on my own so it’s a good thing someone else did!”
“Urban Challenger drops you right in the thick of the action. I loved it!”
