Since the early days we have maintained that trekking is ideally suited to exploring villages and monasteries in remote regions and getting close up to inspiring mountain scenery. We design trekking holidays to perfection as so many of our past trekkers will testify.

Our treks help you discover the remote trails of the Himalaya in Nepal, Tibet, India, Sikkim and Bhutan; the dramatic Karakoram in Pakistan; the Andes from Patagonia to Peru; the Table Mountains of Venezuela; the Rockies and National Parks of North America; the High Atlas of Morocco; the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia; Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya and Mount Meru in East Africa; along the Great Wall of China and ancient pilgrim trails in Japan; hill tribe country in Vietnam and Thailand; Turgen Mountain in Mongolia; the; the European Alps and Dolomites; Iceland’s rugged wilderness; the Southern Alps of New Zealand, Australia’s remote outback and Tasmanian trails.

Trekking generally requires that you carry a daypack to hold your requirements for the day.  Some challenging treks require you to carry a full pack. Trekking days can range from 4-10 hours a day depending on the grading. Please refer to the explanation of the gradings and the specific trip notes for more information.

We offered our first trekking holiday (to Everest Base Camp in Nepal) way back in 1975. Since then we have carefully designed numerous treks to cater for nearly every age and fitness level. We invite you to book your next trek with World Expeditions, the trekking holiday specialists.

Global Warming

Rising temperatures, drought and water shortages, melting glaciers and icecaps and extreme weather conditions bring the problem of global warming into our collective consciousness. The need to address this global concern, both on an individual, business and government level, has never been more immediate. We must act now to build a future that is less reliant on fossil fuels for energy and instead harness the efficiencies of renewable resources to fuel our homes, businesses and modern lifestyles.

 

Offset Your Air Travel

By choosing to travel with World Expeditions you are choosing to travel responsibly ... it is at the heart of what we do, and it is our goal to support you and make it simple for you to travel this way.

Because of that, we offer you the choice to offset the carbon emissions from your air travel. 

The carbon offsets we purchase on your behalf are sourced by Climate Friendly, an utterly reputable carbon management company based in Sydney Australia.  They have rigorous quality assurance processes and support only the best, most effective projects that prevent carbon emissions being generated.

You have the choice of offsetting 1 tonne of carbon, choosing a dollar figure to spend on it or choosing a volume of carbon to offset. One tonne (approx. $AUD17.00) will be added to your invoice, but you are welcome to remove it if you would prefer.

From our partners, Climate Friendly ... new piece of research has found the incredible co-benefit value of carbon offsetting. 

Offsetting one tonne of carbon dioxide brings an additional $664 in benefits to the communities where carbon reduction projects are based. The research was done by ICROA, the International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance, of which Climate Friendly is a member.
