New trips for 2019

Our BIG adventures are getting BIGGER

We love seeking out paths less travelled in the world's most intriguing destinations; finding new ways to explore old favourites; refining our classics; and continuing to offer innovative itineraries every year. In 2019, we're welcoming a new range of active adventures, cultural journeys and exploratory expeditions.

BIG Adventures. Small Footprint. Since our first trek in Nepal in 1975, leaving minimal impact in the places we visit by travelling under your own steam has been at the very heart of our travel philosophy.  We pride ourselves in offering authentic adventure travel experiences. Many of our high quality adventures begin where everyone else's ends, providing travellers with an opportunity to truly disconnect for a while and appreciate the magic of the world's wildest landscapes and most intriguing cultures.  Where will your next BIG adventure be?

Since we first laced up our hiking boots and hit the Himalayan trails in 1975, our itineraries have evolved and now span every continent, many of which start where everyone else's end. We haven’t slowed down since. As we have evolved, so too have our Thoughtful Travel initiatives, supported by some of the world’s most experienced and respected adventurers.

Spark your wanderlust across seven continents and make 2019 a year to remember. Check out our new small group tours and expeditions for 2019 below.
