Plenty of activities to keep everyone happy but mixed up with enough time to relax. Fabulous weather and swimming off the boat everyday was a real treat for the kids. Everynight we docked in great ports to explore on foot. The boat was fantastic, really comfy and felt really safe for the kids. Great staff and food. Really amazing trip and didn't really want it to end!

I recently did the 6 day Larapinta Trail and it was brilliant. Much more challenging than I had imagined due to the rocky paths and constant need for focus on every step. The guides were exceptional, the food superb and transport and campsites all comfortable and well maintained. The trail itself was amazing... views, wildflowers, birds, lizards, insects. Overall a very healing trip as the tracks demand presence and to be 'in the moment'. Thank you W.E. - what a wonderful holiday

The tour leader and porters/drivers were extremely professional, insightful into Madagascar and the the local communities. This tour was absolutely fantastic and we have already booked through World Expeditions to do Nepal next year!

Our first view of Machu Picchu in the distance, after we had walked for 4 days was truly remarkable. We felt so much a part of the spectacular landscape rather than just another pack of tourists. The camping on the trek was comfortable, lovely warm bedding and the meals excellent. Other accommodation was perfect, especially in the Sacred Valley and Amazon basin - both were luxurious and in stunning locations (but also eco friendly). Knowledgeable guides gave us so much history and local information. An exceptional trip I would highly recommend to any reasonably fit person.

Stepping out of the jungle and through the Inca ruins of Llactapata seeing all of Machu Picchu in the distance with the 'happy mountain' right behind it looking like a solar eclipse is truly awe inspiring.

Stride Review

Founded in 1975, World Expeditions offers unique adventure travel itineraries around the world. They have a strong commitment to responsible travel and helping local communities.

What Makes World Expeditions Stand Out?

World Expeditions video

They have a strong emphasis on, and commitment to, sustainable travel and responsible tourism. They have several ways they focus on maintaining as small a carbon footprint as possible, including contributing to local communities through their award winning “Community Project Travel Program.”

Those wanting to participate in this program will spend four to five days of their tour helping make a difference by volunteering in various ways to improve the lives of those living in remote and poor communities.

They also have a local employment policy, and high standards of training ensuring that employees and guides greet travelers with unparalleled enthusiasm and experience.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling With World Expeditions?

Those wanting to support a sustainable and responsible travel style will enjoy a trip with World Expeditions. The average age on a World Expeditions tour is between 40-65, primarily women, groups of friends, couples, and solo travelers.

A large portion of their tours have an element of “roughing it”. If you’re looking for a luxurious experience this probably won’t be it, but the itineraries are creative and all inclusive, with high quality ground services - designed for adventurous travelers who have high expectations.

If you are new to outdoor travel, or looking for something less hard core and more experiential - World Expeditions has many options to choose from covering a wide range of physical levels and activities. And if you’re an experienced trekker looking for a challenge, they offer this as well!

Top Destinations

They offer more than 500 adventure-focused itineraries around the world. For their community efforts they focus on remote areas and small local villages.

Trekking in Nepal with World Expeditions

World Expeditions offers more than 500 adventure-focused itineraries to all continents. They began as a Himalayan Trekking company and it is still their most popular destination, claiming the largest collection of itineraries in the Himalayas, exclusive campsites, and unmatched sustainable initiatives.

In their own words “adventure travel is about pushing personal boundaries and taking on challenges. It’s constantly evolving. New trips, new destinations, new ways of experiencing destinations are all a part of what World Expeditions is all about.”

World Expeditions Travel Style

All of their group departures are fully supported with an expertly trained local group leader and a team of staff including a driver, cook, kitchen staff and porters to carry all the gear. Their commitment to responsible and community driven travel means plenty of local people are given meaningful employment.

Private transportation is used on their trips, and quality accommodations are carefully chosen for their ambience, heritage, and location. The pace of itineraries varies greatly, and the World Expeditions team can help travelers choose the best option according to their needs.

Why Choose a Tour with World Expeditions?

From small group active adventures to expeditions to cycling and walking tours to cultural journeys, World Expeditions prove you can be a responsible traveler wherever you go.

Trips with World Expeditions are all inclusive and represent exceptional value - with no hidden extras. They avoid having local payments and what they don’t include provides the flexibility to enjoy more of the local flavors. A ‘no single supplement’ policy is another example of their commitment to offering great value-for-money travel.

Dolomites with World Expeditions

One of their core values is to “attract people who have high expectations of their travel experiences.” Travelers with World Expeditions are treated to full meal service on their trekking adventures, as part of the trip price. This includes access to a full time cook and kitchen assistant who prepare creative menus and carefully manage the hygiene standard.

Whether it’s an exploratory expedition with a world class guide or experiencing a destination differently, World Expeditions is always looking for innovative ways for our clients to experience a destination.
