The competition, which is more of a rally than a flat out race around the world, has attracted great travelers from over 55 countries to date, and takes place annually now each spring over a 23-day period. The Global Scavenger Hunt takes an exclusive group of 15-two person teams on A Blind Date with the World™—because competitors do not know which 10 countries they will be visiting—having them upon arrival unravel cryptic clues and hints along with solving riddles that lead them to complete a series of culturally-oriented and highly participatory scavenges that earns them points. The team that accumulates the most points over the three-week, eight-leg rally-like event, is eventually crowned The World's Greatest Travelers.

When is the Global Scavenger Hunt?

For three thrill-packed weeks between April 13-May 5, 2018, 15 two person Teams are invited to go around-the-world and across 10 countries in The Global Scavenger Hunt.

Then entry fee to participate is $12500 per person that includes all international airfare, 23-nights in wonderful hotels, 40%+ meals..and great event-related travel goody bags. 
The 2017 winners will defend their title in 2018 for free...and you could also travel for free by helping others with the Great Escape Foundation.

The Event Set Up

Teams arrive on the same pre-booked plane to each new exotic destination and are efficiently met by pre-arranged VIP transportation and taken to their First Class luxury accommodations. Teams are given the opportunity to freshen up and replenish before they start each new rally leg.

Teams are then given a localized scavenger hunt booklet of novel, exciting, interesting, fun, inspiring and highly-interactive things to do...we call in complete during their 48-96 hour stay in each rally spot.

Teams then strategize and formulate a plan about how to do the fun and gratifying scavenges that they want to do, and that will earn their team points for completing tasks. At the end of each leg (rally point), teams meet and swap wildly heroic travel stories before being given their airline tickets to the next secret destination-hence A Blind Date with the World. And so begins another leg...every Global Scavenger Hunt event to date has visited at least 10 countries.
