Choose your adventure style

However you like to organise your adventure: whether in a totally tailor made private trip, joining like minded travellers in an open group or maybe taking on a challenge for charity. We can help you arrange and adventure that is perfect for you.

Private groups

If you want a really special adventure why not book a private trip to Kilimanjaro, the Himalaya or Machu Picchu.

What is so great about a private expedition is that we can arrange a trip for you that is totally tailor-made to your requirements. This is perfect for high altitude trekking as it gives you the very best chance of a successful expedition. Read more

Open groups

Although it says private in our name it was not long after we started and people could see the reviews we were getting that they started asking us if would run open group climbs. So now, as well as all our private treks we also operate a full program of open treks throughout the main trekking seasons in both Tanzania and Nepal. Read more

Charity challenge expeditions

Private Expeditions are experts in arranging  trips to climb Kilimanjaro for charity, hike to Everest base camp for charity or tackle the Inca trail. And since we started more climbers and trekkers every year have chosen to organise their charity challenge with us.

What really makes our charity challenge trips exceptionally popular is that as well as all the great features you get on all our climbs, on charity challenges we offer a number of unique benefits. Read more

Corporate challenges

If the standard management development course doesn't appeal and you are looking for something really exciting as a team-building and management development exercise then an expedition with us could fit the bill perfectly. We have loads of experience of organising adventures for companies such as GE and BA and know how to organise your adventure so that everyone has fun safely. Read more

Solo adventurers

We offer two great options for solo adventurers: you are always welcome to join one of our small groups or we will happily arrange a private tailor-made trip just for you.

In our small groups, about half will generally be single travellers so you are almost certain to find yourself in good company. And to help everyone get to know each other we host a google+ event page for all our groups so you can say hello and touch base before you arrive. Read more

And for the really adventurous, go One Step Beyond

Every one of our adventures is designed to take you One Step Beyond your everyday and perhaps even One Step Beyond your normal limits. But if you are looking for something special why not try one of our exclusive One Step Beyond Adventures.

Our One Step Beyond program covers three ranges of tours. Read more
