A vacation is a reward that hard working people give themselves and we understand how precious this time is whether you are a student, professional, tradesman or businessperson. At Responsible Adventures, we work just as hard to provide unique experiences so that you are guaranteed an unforgettable memory of your vacation in the Himalayan destinations of Bhutan, Nepal, India or Tibet.
We have separated ourselves from the mainstream tour operators, providing a more creative and trend setting service to make our trekkers feel extra special. Our founder has handpicked and trained all team members and our employees are passionate and dedicated to their profession. At Responsible Adventures, our focus is on combining excellent logistical preparation with companionable and highly skilled leaders and guides to offer you trekking tours that are a cut above the rest. Our reputation is based on the number of well-run trekking adventures we have organized, and the quality of our experiences has been proven by the number of clients who keep returning to us.
Our extensive experience and meticulous approach means that unnecessary hardship is minimized. To help you choose the adventure that is right for you, we use a comprehensive grading system for each trip to identify its level of difficulty and provide a ‘When to Go’ chart highlighting the best time of year to visit your chosen destination.
The itinerary design makes a big difference to your experiences in any country, and it is crucial that it is planned thoroughly to make the most of your trip. Each of our journeys is carefully designed to take in all of the very best treks and attractions of your chosen destination. Responsible Adventures makes sure that all trips are set at an appropriate pace, accommodation is charming and well-located and that our trekkers enjoy introductions to fascinating local people. We offer opportunities to explore hidden villages, secret footpaths, and unique little cafes – all those locations that only an ‘insider’ could know. We have changed some itineraries to avoid crowded places when possible, taking you to places others do not and in the process bring income to villages off the beaten track. We guarantee that you will notice the difference in our service throughout your trekking experience.
We Handle All Your Travel Details
Our area managers are specialists who possess a wealth of knowledge about all our destinations. They pride themselves on being able to answer all your questions and help you choose a trip that is right for you. The area manager assigned to you is usually your single point of contact, taking care of everything from your trip details to providing you with necessary information about clothing, visas and any required immunizations you may need for your chosen destination. We provide you with daily itineraries for each trip, which contain useful information to help you prepare. We will even offer a reading list to spark your imagination in preparation for the journey ahead.
In a nutshell, we take care of every little detail, and all you need to do is pack your bags and set off for the adventure of a lifetime. We are also more than happy to put you in contact with some of our previous adventurers, so that you can ask them about their experiences.
