Wildlife Expeditions

Meet our fellow Earthlings.

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 a 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. 

Join us for some wild encounters.

Congratulations: You found us! 

We’re not on the first page of Google. We don’t do web marketing.

So you might here because your friends traveled with us.  Or 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 magic happens. Places that are wild and genuine.

During our 25 years of exploring and leading trips we have found many such gems. We like to share these with our tribe and friends of friends.

Have a look around.

We’re happy to help create your next great 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!

  • My wife and I have enjoyed 4 fantastic trips with Hidden Places over the last 5 years - 3 of them led by Maria and Dag, whose skills, personalities and innate understanding of how to make every moment special is truly remarkable.
