If you’ve dreamed of gazing at the highest peaks in the world or visiting villages so remote they can only be reached on foot, then experience Asia with us!

Hiking is the ultimate way to experience the wild “down under” beauty of Tasmania and New Zealand’s mountains. In Japan, we discover a culture steeped in thousand-year-old traditions as we hike pilgrim trails to serene mountain temples.


Hiking in Africa? Yes! We’ve crafted world-class trail adventures on this continent, including an epic climb of magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro, a trek through welcoming Berber villages in Morocco’s High Atlas, and the thrill of gorilla tracking in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
