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 33 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.

We specialize in custom journeys, handcrafted with your dreams in mind. Check out our Custom Shop and be in touch - we're more than happy to put together an itinerary proposal just for you!

Time for Nepal Travel

Watching sunrise over the Himalayas with a new "local guide" & friend


Undoubtedly you have heard news of the devastating earthquake and subsequent aftershocks that rocked Nepal this spring. In the aftermath of the disaster we were able to gather donations and funds and have since traveled to Nepal to support our many friends, family and beloved staff. While there, we learned the infrastructure was rapidly healing and when we asked how else we could help we were told again and again, more than aid, donations and assistance they want to get back to normal and to work.

We told them we would do everything we can and this adventure is a part of that! USAID, the US State Department, National Geographic & Lonely Planet have all banded together to suggest that if you want to Help Nepal Heal - Fall 2015 is the time to GO to Nepal!
