A SMALL TEAM OF SPECIALISTS
We are specialists. Adventure International is a small team of adventure specialists, we are destination managers, expedition guides and adventure outfitters.
We are strategically located. With guides, leaders and owners in some of the most incredible locations in the world, living and working in destination countries gives us the ability to deliver exceptional adventures from some of the highest peaks in the Himalaya to the plains of East Africa and the Snow-capped summit of Mt Kilimanjaro where we cut our teeth.
We are passionate about adventure. We are brought together by our passion and love for providing adventure seekers high quality safe adventures in remote locations whilst remaining sustainable, ethical and sensitive to the needs of areas visited.
We are diligent. With elite planning and rigorous safety protocols in place you can be sure you're getting the right team for your expedition, adventure or mountain climb, even in some of the most remote, hostile and challenging settings in the world.
We are adaptive. We provide bespoke, private guided services supported by our intimate knowledge of the destination, terrain and local customs. We don't sell trips we haven't done ourselves.
We are local. We work hand in hand with people from the communities we operate in to deliver first class, private guided expeditions that have meaningful and positive impact in the community through employment, increased knowledge, capacity building, training & development and resource management. True partnerships build Adventures for a Lifetime!
