Be prepared though; cycling for several days in a row (50-75km per day) in this environment is tough, if you're not prepared. The guides and their teams were good. Lots of information and happy to answer most questions. We were a bit pressed for time some days and didn't get as much time to stop and take photos as I would have liked. Overall, well worth it.

Previously a tough one in Bhutan followed by Annapurna in 2017. This trek was the greatest made more memorable by snowfall.

Our guide Dilli was so patient, kind and friendly. He was also very attentive and professional when we showed signs of poor health. The route we took on the Annapurna trek took us through very interesting, different and beautiful terrains. We learnt and saw how locals lived and the Nepalese community are one of the most hospitable and friendly people. The trek can be difficult at times but very rewarding with beautiful scenery. We even managed to spot some wild monkeys on the way up. Overall I would definitely recommend this tour!

No two days were the same: from the cities, to the countryside, the ryokans and the ceremony at the Buddhist temple. Good for the body and the soul!

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.
