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 help you chose the adventure that’s right for you, we use a comprehensive grading system on each one of our trips, identifying the level of difficulty, and containing a ‘when to go’ chart highlighting the best time of year to visit the destination.
Itinerary design makes a big difference to your experiences in any country, and it is important that the itinerary is thought out thoroughly to maximise your trip. Each of our journeys is carefully designed to take in all of the very best treks and attractions of that particular destination. Responsible Adventures makes sure all our trips are set at an appropriate pace, all accommodation is charming and well-located, and all our trekkers enjoy introductions to fascinating local people. We offer off-the-path hidden villages, secret footpaths, and special little cafes - everything that only an “insider” could know about.
Even though some of our trips go to very remote places and occasionally include camping, we make sure you enjoy plenty of home comforts. On the camping treks, you have camp staff at your service at all times, and camp amenities like dining tents and hot coffee or tea, brought to your tent each morning. Supplementary snacks are also available during the walk.
All people who travel with us are active, enthusiastic and share a great curiosity about the world of travel. They’re all people who love to set off on a great hike, take in the local scenery and attractions, learn new things, and meet local people. Most people who join our trips are already very well-traveled, and some of which have traveled with Responsible Adventures before. We cater for all types of people, friends, couples, singles, etc ... our wonderful trip leaders add to the atmosphere in the group, and join in with evenings of laughter and conversation over a good meal, and our trekkers often move onto becoming lifelong friends.
Our area managers specialize, and possess a wealth of knowledge about all of our destinations. They pride themselves on being able to answer all your questions and help you choose a trip that’s right for you. We provide daily itineraries for each trip, which contain helpful preparation information. We are also more than happy to put you in contact with some of our previous adventurers, so you can ask them about their experiences. The area manager is usually your single point of contact, taking care of everything from trip details, to providing you basic information about clothing, visas and any necessary immunizations you need for visiting the destination. We will also provide a reading list to spark your imagination for the journey ahead. In a nutshell, we take of every little detail, and all you need to do is pack your bags, and set off for the adventure of a lifetime.
As Responsible Adventures plays a small part in the world’s largest industry - tourism - we are sensitive to the impacts extensive amounts of travel would have on the places we visit. We are extremely committed to our environmental responsibility; we provide low-impact tourism, and actively support a number of conservation and cultural groups. We strongly believe that responsible tourism can be an extraordinary tool to connect people from different backgrounds, countries and cultures, and also go a long way in supporting local businesses and communities.
At Responsible Adventures, we take the utmost care with every aspect of your trip. We take into consideration the altitude of the trek, hygienic food preparation within the camp, and we ensure that every safety and security issue is addressed. Travelling with a company as experienced as we are also adds a strong element of safety and security to all our journeys, and throughout the years we have ensured that emergencies are extremely rare.
