Charley is an actor turned adventurer. His memorable journeys with Ewan McGregor, Long Way Round, Long Way Down and By Any Means with Russ Malkin, changed the public's perspective, revealing someone who is not only in touch with nature but a philanthropist and daredevil.

Long Way Round featured a three-and-a-half month, 19,000 mile journey on specially adapted BMW bikes included awareness-raising visits to UNICEF projects and monuments such as the Mask of Sorrow in Magadan and Mount Rushmore.

In 2007, he started another journey with McGregor: this time taking part in Long Way Down, a trip from John o' Groats in Scotland, to Cape Town, South Africa. 


In 2008, Charley Boorman started By Any Means, which has taken him all around the world starting in his home town in County Wicklow, Ireland and ending in Sydney, Australia. He set out to complete the journey "by any means" using local transportation appropriate to the area being travelled, on 22 July 2008. He travelled the world on various forms of transportation using air travel only when necessary, accompanied by producer Russ Malkin, and cameraman Paul Mungeam, nicknamed Mungo.


In 2009, Charley announced on his Twitter page that a sequel, tentatively named By Any Means 2 but later named Right to the Edge: Sydney to Tokyo By Any Means was in the works. This took Charley and the team from Sydney to Tokyo via the Pacific Rim. The Manly Daily newspaper issued an open invitation for fellow motorcyclists to join him on this first leg from Freshwater Park on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, leaving at 10:00 am on Monday 18 May 2009, heading up to the Central Coast of New South Wales. The newspaper reported approximately 1,500 riders took part.


With his highly engaging style and fascinating stories, Charley is guaranteed to capture the interest of any audience; he even completed a six week UK and Ireland tour in 2010.
