Congratulations: You found us!

We don’t do web marketing. We don’t really care about our Google ranking. 

So did you hear about us from your friends who traveled with us? Or have you read our books? Maybe you saw one of our presentations or art shows. Or heard of our conservation efforts.

Then you’ll know that we love to discover hidden places. Places on the fringe of the world or simply a few steps off the beaten path. Places where time slows, where magic happens. 

During our 25 years of exploring and leading expeditions we’ve assembled a collection of such gems. We string them together to create award-winning travel experiences. And we share them with our tribe and with friends of our friends.

Have a look around.

We’re happy to set you up for your next great adventure.
