Why Yugen

An awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too powerful for words

Back back


Yugen Explore is a UK travel accessory brand created by travellers to inspire others to travel the world. 


Yugen: An awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too powerful for words.

Explore: To leave your comfort zone and travel through an unfamiliar area.




We set up the company to make it as easy as possible for people to find products and information relating to travel. Our goal is to share knowledge and experience gained over the years and build a community of like-minded individuals. 

Through completing worldwide market and consumer research, the products developed are good quality and affordable with the traveller in mind. Our mission is to be a sustainable company offering products that are built to last, with the aim of keeping plastic waste to a minimum and to ensure suppliers meet our ethical standards. You tell us where you’re going and what you want to do and we will recommend kit and links to the relevant websites for things like visas, vaccinations and safety information. 



Our principles at Yugen Explore are Explore, Create, Inspire Share. We want you to travel as often as you can, whether you are with a friend or going solo. Exploring close to home or a gap year around the world, we urge you to travel. There's a massive world out there so travel as little or often as you can and share your stories with the world. 

If you haven't yet then we want you to have your own moments of Yugen, maybe you wont 'find yourself' but you'll awaken something inside that will change you forever.

But if you already have, then we want to hear about it and help to inspire the world. Email us your story at freedom@yugenexplore.com with the subject 'My Yugen moment'.


 Just remember that life begins at the end of your comfort zone. What are you waiting for?
