Nothing makes us feel as humbled, reverent, and shaken to the core — in a good way, that is — like our journeys with and for Earth’s wild creatures. Holding our breath as mountain gorilla stares somberly at us in Rwanda, feeling the reverberation of thousands of hooves of Kenyan wildebeest in our chests, watching a fluffy penguin chick peck at our boots on a South Georgia beach — these aren’t just memories; they’re revelations into what it means to be part of our planet. (Learn more about our conservation projects and how you can help.) The world needs more witnesses of its wondrous wildlife. Tag along and become one with us?
Adventure Travel has been our specialty since 1991 when we started to explore the world’s most spectacular places as photographers and writers. Several years (and several books) later we began sharing our experiences with others by developing and leading adventure tours. We founded Hidden Places Travel in 2000 and quickly became renowned for our unique, off-the-beaten-track itineraries. Our support of local communities and conservation projects gives our trips unprecedented access and our loyal following of repeat guests is a testament to our professionalism and nurturing approach.
We invite you to join us on one of our life-changing adventures.
Dag Goering and Maria Coffey
The best birthday in years! Thank you for another special adventure.
Thank you for finding the ‘hidden places’ in each town… all of them were the result of your incredible attention to detail and your passion for bringing new experiences to others.
You are true professionals in what you do. I already am looking forward to our next Hidden Places adventure.
My second trip with you was just as fabulous as the first. You prepare so thoughtfully and everything is executed with such apparent ease. You are imaginative, generous and kind, and it is heart warming to be around you. I’ll travel with Hidden Places again!
Thank you for an awesome adventure in Greece. Your trips are always very special and I feel so lucky to be with you and all the guests.
★★★★★ We can't think of a better way to immerse yourself into this rich and vibrant country than traveling with Hidden Places. Maria and Dag have the adventure travel thing nailed down perfectly. We can't wait for our next adventure with them.
A unique and wonderful experience: Great setting, great food, great crowd, great ambience. May there be many more hidden places to explore with such fine people. Many thanks.
The hidden gem in the journey was the great care and attention to detail by Hidden Places. Your compassion and sensitivity to guests is first class.
Hidden Places really takes care of its ‘family’ (we never feel like clients). The boat and crew, the hotel and staff – all top of the line. Thank you for one of the most incredible experiences of my life!
Once again you’ve brought together extraordinary people and a magical place… and made every detail easy and fun.
You have such special skills – putting together the trip and then making it happen so beautifully. All that thought and care has made our holiday really special… a fantastic experience.
This trip exceeded our expectations as all Hidden Places trips do!
Another wonderful trip filled with laughter and joy. You always create an amazing experience. The boat and crew were wonderful, catering to all our needs. I can’t wait for the next adventure!
