World Expeditions

World Expeditions has been pioneering innovative and responsible small group adventure holidays to the world’s most fascinating destinations since we began in Nepal as Australian Himalayan Expeditions in 1975.

Today, we offer over 400 worldwide small group€tive adventures and expeditions, cycling and walking tours and more relaxed cultural journeys. Each itinerary has several scheduled departure dates throughout the season.

Supported by some of the world’s most experienced and respected adventurers, World Expeditions has helped shape the adventure travel industry standards since its inception almost four decades ago.

Our virtually all-inclusive, no hidden extras pricing policy combined with longer (read ‘safer’ on altitude treks), creative itineraries and the use of quality ground services attract people who have high expectations of their travel experiences.

World Expeditions is seriously committed to true sustainability. Our experience has shown us the positive conservation outcomes when travel is managed for sustainability. It is a long-term vision that can deliver true sustainability, and with the participation of all our clients and business partners the challenge is being met and€hieved.

Our philanthropic program ensures we give something back. Our Community Project Travel program is a unique philanthropy program that we have operated since 2005, functioning entirely as a not-for profit division of our company. The program offers purposeful adventures for everyday travellers, where the main objective is to improve the lives of other people, or the environment, in a meaningful and sustainable way.

Independently owned, World Expeditions is a truly global company with offices in London, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, as well as Auckland, Ottawa and Montreal. Our brands include UTracks (affordable€tive short-breaks€ross Europe), Tasmanian Expeditions (adventure holidays in Australia’s apple isle), World Youth Adventures (specialist school group advenrtures) & Adventure South (guided cycling & hiking holidays in New Zealand).
