Over 30 Years of Working to Perfect the Art of Adventure Travel!

What is the Art of Adventure Travel?

Each place in the world has its own rhythms, flavor, and magic. Clearly, some places have more magic than others. And a few places seem to have gotten the lion’s share, especially in terms of the landscapes and the people who inhabit them. The trips on this site are journeys in some of these most magical of places, from treks in Patagonia and the Himalaya, to tiger safaris in India, and cultural tours throughout Bhutan, Nepal and India.

In the last 32 years we’ve worked to understand the rhythms and secrets of these corners of the world and we enjoy helping you do the same. We like to share the parts of the world, people and experiences that have pushed us to believe in the Art of Adventure Travel. We’ve been refining this type of travel since 1982, and would love to share the journey with you this year.

A 2014 Heli-Trekking Special Departure:

Windswept Clouds over Ama Dabblam

This heli-trekking adventure co-led by ATC founder, Steve Conlon and Everest Sumitter (and Everest Legacy), Jamling Tenzing, will take you trekking through the Khumbu, up to and above the gate way of Mt. Everest to the rarely traveled Ama Dablam base camp.

November is the ideal time for views, and you'll get them both while trekking but none will rival the views from the helicopter exit after the trek! It is sure to be an adventure of a lifetime!

Interested? Check out the trip page, request the full itinerary, read Jamling's blog or feel free to be in touch with any questions that we can be helpful with!
