Scheduled 2020/21 Asia Expeditions
2020 Asia Expeditions | Whistling Arrow
Our scheduled adventures, open for everyone to join, are displayed here in chronological order. For the foreseeable future, each trip will be limited to just 5 guests, and personally led by our founder, Adrian Bottomley. We understand though, that these fixed departure dates may not work for everyone. So, for other pre-arranged groups, we are happy to try and arrange similar private expeditions to suit your alternative dates.
* If you are considering booking one of our trips, please note that in the event that it is not able to run due to Covid-19 related factors, we are happy to credit your booking deposit against any other future expeditions. We are also finalising a revised operational manual for each expedition, that will include initial temperature checks for all participants, rigourous pre-trip cleaning of all equipment, stricter standards of personal hygene for the crew, and meticulous Covid-related evacuation plans (we always have a group Search & Rescue policy with GEOS as standard). *

Arrange A Private Expedition

We understand that the fixed departure dates of our scheduled adventures may not always work for everyone. So, if you are able to assemble a pre-arranged group of your own, we can try and customize a private expedition to suit the dates available to your group. 
We are also happy to design custom expeditions affiliated for example with charity challenges, alumni groups , corporate employee engagement and various other clubs and organizations.
* Please note that most trips are only possible in relatively narrow weather windows and are usually not advisable outside of these optimal timeframes *
