Our logo, values and vision
Our logo encompasses these values and our vision
We have create a logo which is full of metaphor and meaning. It reflects our roots, our values and what we strive to achieve. Our logo sums up Inward Adventures in one short explanation.
The Green Puzzle Piece and the Globe:
These are Links back to a life as a Royal Marines Commando.
The colour green is taken from the Coveted Green Beret. A symbol which is earned through hard work and the application of a set of values and an ethos to create a dedicated and professional individual.
The Commando spirit learnt from the Royal Marines remain central to Inward Adventures’ own values and vision, and it is this spirit that guides our work in supporting you and your Adventure.
The globe, particular the Eastern hemisphere, is taken from the cap badge of the Royal Marines. Inward Adventures includes this in the logo as inspiration for locations to travel to, explore and have an Adventure in. Adventures can be found anywhere you choose to have one, from the deepest ocean to the highest mountain to your own back yard, you choose to be the Adventure anywhere in the world!
The Blue Puzzle Piece and the river and mountains:
we know that colours can mean different things to people.
In our model of the world blue is a cool and relaxed colour.
The blue puzzle piece is included to represent the calm and relaxed spaces and feelings we can experience during an adventure, be it enjoying the amazing views from the top of a hill to floating peacefully on a calm gentle river to being mindful in a beautiful woodland safely enjoying the experience with likeminded, relaxed people and staff.
Rivers and mountains have been used as metaphores for thousands of years and can represent the journeys, challenges and achievements we all experience.
Your Adventures could provide exciting challenges, reflective moments, powerful lessons and amazing achievements!
We can enjoy these spaces and times together in a mixture of terrain and environment, safe and supported.
The Orange Puzzle Piece and the fire:
In our model of the world Orange represents the high energy emotions we can feel during our adventure, such as excitement or adrenaline.
It can also remind us of warmth, comfort and safety when we spend time with others in amazing places having amazing Adventures.
Since its creation fire has been a symbol of safety, light and warmth. A fire place has been used for meeting and greeting, sharing stories and lessons and investing in others time and development. We aim to create a space and environment which is as safe and supportive as it possibly can be and to focus on supporting your time and development so you can be the very best version of yourself that you can be, and you can go on to share your amazing stories and experiences with others. Come and write and be your story with us around our fire.
The Red Puzzle Piece and the strap line,
“You Are The Adventure”!
This piece is to represent you. To us the red represents the negative emotions we can experience when we feel overwhelmed.
I wonder what colour you would choose?
The last puzzle piece, and our strap line, go together. Inward Adventures can’t sell you anything because you are the product.
You are the product of all of your own experiences right up to this moment, you have travelled a unique journey, one that no one can ever judge, and you have been on an adventure since your very first day.
What we offer is a space and time for you to come and experience your Adventure and learn more about yourself, which you can then take back and apply to your other challenges.
Red could represent high level energy, something powerful, which is something you can be even more of!
You are the adventure so come and be it in the amazing places we can take you to in the outdoors. Learn with us, develop with us and lets all be an amazing adventure together!
Our values are based on those taught to all Royal Marines from day one of training. The ethos aims to encourage and promote the very best from someone, both physically and mentally and steers people to become and be the very best they can be.
Inward Adventures always strives to do the very best it can do for everyone we come in to contact with, be it the end user, an employer, an organisation or company, we will do our everything in our power to ensue what we deliver and how we deliver it, is the very best we can.

Self - Discipline:
There are always easy options, conversations we would rather not have, or lessons which may be seem tough to learn. We will strive to stay on the right path, assess all the options and take the most useful. We will have the difficult conversations and learn the tough lessons to be the very best we can be to support you to be the very best you can be.
Everyone we meet has a model of the world and we fully understand it may be different to our own.We will respect the rights, ideas, opinions, abilities and models of the world we come in to contact with and aim to encompass, include and support everyone regardless.
We are all confronted with times where we are put under pressure and feel out of our depth. Inward Adventures will always acknowledge this and maintain an intention to do what is right for everyone. We will work hard, face fears and support you in facing and overcoming your own. We believe we are all stronger than we let ourselves believe.
