Our scheduled annual expeditions (with fixed dates) are open for everyone to join, and displayed here in chronological order. These fully supported expeditions are limited to a maximum of 7 guests, and are typically hosted and led by our founder, Adrian Bottomley*. While our annual schedule continually evolves, every year these expeditions offer a distinctive blend of new and more challenging explorations, somewhat 'softer' treks, and one or two of our old favourites. We know that these fixed departure dates may not work for everyone. So, for private groups, we can try to arrange similar customised expeditions to suit your alternative dates.
* Please note that 2024 will be a little different. We have multiple private client expeditions confirmed with Adrian hosting, and so our scheduled 'open' expeditions will be limited to just a handful of 'old favourites' led by our trusted local guides. *
The fixed departure dates of our scheduled annual expeditions may not always work for everyone. So, if you have a pre-arranged group of your own, we can customize a private expedition to suit the dates available to your group. These can duplicate (or build on) the design of our scheduled expeditions, call on our extensive portfolio of previous trips, or employ our expertise to create new and pioneering explorations.
*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.*
A Few Previous Examples
We have successfully created (most often from scratch), delivered and led dozens of unique expeditions since we started in 2009. Asia has historically been our favourite adventure playground, but going forward, we are increasingly adding more global destinations. Below is a selection from our portfolio of previous trips, which we hope will provide a little inspiration.
More In The Pipeline
We are always ideating and pouring over maps. Currently we have active expedition plans developing in Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Tajikistan - to name but a few. To request more information, and potentially secure a spot on the relevant reconnaissance trip please do get in touch.
By way of example, here is an expedition first in Yunnan (western China), that we are presently working on for a private group of intrepid clients.
