The Best of Every Destination

Everywhere we travel, we bring a special Wilderness Travel style. In Europe, we’re welcomed as family into lovely small hotels, and enjoy delightful picnics of local specialties and fine wines. In Africa, our luxurious safari camps and exclusive lodges are located with ultimate access to wildlife. On Himalayan and Andean treks, unbelievable views surround our comfortable camps with appetizing and varied meals that keep you energized throughout the day, and morning wake-ups come with a hot cup of coffee or tea brought right to your tent.

Personal Service

From your first phone call, we’ll show you why our rate of repeat travelers is so high. Our Area Specialists will be your single point of contact throughout your experience of planning and preparing for your journey (no sales call-centers here!). They will handle all of your trip details, providing specifics about everything you’ll need, from appropriate clothing to what countries need visas. As you travel, our Trip Leaders and local support staff handle the logistics seamlessly, so that you can relax and savor your experience.

Our Trip Leaders are the best in the industry

Our Leaders

WT Trip Leaders are the absolute best in the business. They are naturalists, authors, archaeologists, photographers, and mountaineers, yet all share an extraordinary knowledge of their destinations, and a passion to share their worlds with you. Our Leaders page has bios of these extraordinary—and delightful—travel companions.
