How to play…

– First you need to download the App
– Secondly start scoring Points and work your way to the top of the Leaderboard. Here's how.


Tap the + icon on the App to add your adventures, or use our  'Add an Adventure' Desktop site. For every adventure you successfully add to the App you earn Points and Patches. You also earn bonus points every time someone checks into, or likes, your adventure. Read our 7 tips for adding adventure success to maximise your chances. 

2. completE adventures on the App

Each adventure on the app has been given a points score. The best place to start is to tap the Map Pin Icon to find adventures near you.

To claim your points you need to check-in to the adventure using your mobile device. You can check-in to a self–guided adventure, even if they are not in cellular reception, providing your device has GPS functionality by completing an ‘offline check-in’. For Guided tours, check-in is automatic on the day the tour starts.

3. Get credit for your past adventures 

If there’s an adventure on the app that you have already done then send us some pictures and we’ll credit you the points for that adventure. Take a look around the app, search on places you have travelled, or tap the Map Pin Icon to find adventures near you. If there’s any you’ve done just tap ‘I’ve done this’ and follow the prompts.

4. build up a strong tribe (friends, followers and heroes)

Every time someone follows you on the app you earn bonus points. It pays to tell your friends about the Adventure Junky app and get them join your tribe, by following you. Remember you only appear on the Leaderboard if you have a profile picture, so make sure that’s the first thing you do when you sign into the App.


We will award bonus points for all sorts of random reasons such as a particularly amazing adventures added or a cool profile picture. The more active you are on the app, the more likely you will be of earning random bonus points.
