Some trips are better if you join a group while some are better as private trips. We offer both options, focusing on private trips when they are affordable, and groups when they make the most sense for logistics and value. Our goal is to offer unforgettable flexible and affordable adventures for the independent traveler.

> Custom Itineraries  > Great Value

We tailor your adventure to fit your travel style, time frame, budget, and interests! From different styles of lodging to your favorite adventure activities, we will create the best synergistic itinerary for you. If your goal is to see as many elephants as possible, swim with sea lions, hike to Kilimanjaro's summit off the beaten path, or watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, we make your dream a reality... adventure travel your way!

We offer the very best value and quality on our many tours. We aren't the cheapest company out there, but we never sacrifice quality or our ecological and sustainable standards. Whether you are looking for a great value trek, a high quality mid-range tour, or an amazing luxury safari, we offer the best bang for your buck. Let us know your budget, and we'll help you choose and plan the right trip for you.

> Authentic Adventures > A Commitment to Sustainable Travel

Wherever we take you, you'll experience authentic adventures that focus on or combine four elements: landscape, wildlife, physical challenge, and distant cultures. Imagine watching the sun set over Patagonia's granite towers, snorkeling with sea lions in the Galapagos, trekking to Everest Base Camp in Nepal, or dancing with a Maasai tribe in Tanzania!

AWR Slide Shows and Other Events

Part of an authentic adventure are the people you meet along the way. We work with qualified, experienced, English-speaking local guides. Our guides guarantee you the best exposure to your destination. In addition, you'll know your trip helps the local economy. We also support volunteer initiatives, humanitarian development and eco-tourism.
