At Responsible Adventures our focus is in combining excellent logistical preparation with companionable and highly skilled leaders/guides, to offer you trekking expeditions that are completed in style. Our reputation is based on the number of well-run trekking expeditions we have completed and the fact is proven by the number of clients who keep coming back to adventure with us.

Our extensive experience and scientific approach minimizes unnecessary hardship, giving you the benefit of a more certain outcome. If you share a love for the mountains and remote places and want to achieve your exploratory goals in an environment with the most dedicated team, then we welcome you to join a Responsible Adventures' trekking expedition.

To further help you choose the very best adventure, we use a comprehensive Grading System, which identifies an individual trip's level of difficulty and enables you to easily compare the difficulty of two or more trips. Additionally, our When to Go chart shows you the best time of year to visit each destination.

We Offer Hand-Crafted and Artfully Designed Itineraries

Itinerary design, done well, is an art form, and it makes all of the difference to your experience. Each of our journeys is carefully designed to capture the very best of that particular destination. You travel at an appropriate pace, stay in the most charming, well-located inns or most spectacular camping sites, enjoy introductions to fascinating local people, and make discoveries of off-the-beaten-path gems--hidden villages, secret footpaths, special little cafes--that only an "insider" could know about.

No Matter How Remote the Destination, We Bring the Good Life

Even though some of our trips go to very remote places and include camping, we make sure you enjoy plenty of home comforts. On the camping treks, you have a full camp staff at your service and camp amenities like dining tents and hot coffee or tea, brought to your tent each morning and supplementary snacks during the walk.

Small Group Travel Means Traveling with Friends

Who goes on our trips? Friends, couples, singles-all people who are active, enthusiastic, and share a great curiosity about the world. They love to set off on a great hike, learn new things, and meet local people. Most folks who join our trips are already very well-traveled, and many have traveled with us before. Our wonderful Trip Leaders add to the convivial atmosphere, as do evenings of laughter and conversation over a good meal with fellow trip members who often become lifelong friends.

We Handle All Your Travel Details

Our Area Managers specialize in a particular part of the world and they possess a wealth of knowledge about our destinations. That means they can answer your questions frankly and promptly and help you choose a trip that's right for you. The Detailed Daily Itinerary for each trip provides helpful preparation information, and we are happy to put you in contact with previous trip members who have been on the trip you're interested in so you can ask them about their experience. When you sign up, which you can do by phone with a credit card deposit, the Area Manager is usually your single point of contact, taking care of trip details, air ticketing and trip extensions, and providing you with specifics on everything from clothing to visas to immunizations. We also provide a reading list to spark your imagination for the journey ahead. In short, we take care of every detail so you can just pack your duffel and set off on the adventure of a lifetime. In the field, this high level of service continues in the good hands of our world-class Trip Leaders.

We Travel Responsibly

As Responsible Adventures plays its small part in the world's largest industry--tourism--we are sensitive to the effects of travel on the places we visit. Our commitment to ecologically responsible, low-impact tourism goes back a very long time, and we actively support conservation and cultural groups. We firmly believe that responsible tourism can be an extraordinary tool to connect people across borders and cultures.

Your Safety Is Our Most Important Charge

Our Trip Leaders and support staff take the utmost care with every aspect of your trip, from altitude-related concerns to ensuring hygienic food preparation in camp. Of course, emergencies are extremely rare, but traveling with a company as experienced as we are adds a strong element of safety and security to all journeys.
