Our story:

Manawa was launched in summer 2016 by a team sharing a common passion for a wide range of sporting and outdoor activities: scuba diving, skydiving, climbing, hiking, surfing...

The idea for the project grew out of their own frustrations as outdoor enthusiasts, tired of searching for hours before finding the right offer, manually comparing different sites, having to book by phone or email, waiting days for confirmation or a reply, and running into language barriers along the way.

Aware that this type of leisure activity was not often bookable online, they decided to help service providers digitise their offers, in order to increase their visibility and, at the same time, simplify the booking experience for travellers.

In just a few years, with a network of over 2,500 professional partners and more than 7,000 activities around the world, Manawa.com has become the benchmark site for booking a first dive in Greece, a canyoning trip in the Ardèche, dog sledding in Quebec or surfing lessons in Biarritz, to name but a few.

Today, Manawa aims to offer curious travellers activities and experiences in every possible environment, through 6 universes:

  • Air (hot-air ballooning, parachuting, paragliding, etc.),
  • Snow (glacier hiking, snowshoeing, ice diving...),
  • Land (climbing, accrobranche, mountain biking...),
  • Water (canyoning, diving, rafting, boat trips...),
  • Urban (rollerblading, skateboarding, escape games, indoor climbing...) and
  • "Crazy" for more unusual experiences (survival courses, shark diving, etc.).

Our team :

  • 45 employees, based in Paris and Marseille.
  • 15 nationalities.
  • A shared passion for outdoor activities and adventure!
