About us

Since 1996, The Adventure Company has been taking people on memorable holidays to some of the world’s most amazing destinations.

Whether you want to sleep under the stars in the desert, get up close to some incredible wildlife, trek up some to the world’s most stunning peaks, or discover another culture, we help you to get more from your holiday by arranging your accommodation, transport, guides, activities and some meals, so that you can just relax and enjoy the many experiences.

We use knowledgeable, enthusiastic local tour leaders who bring our well-planned itineraries to life. On every trip you enjoy a mix of must-see highlights and memorable experiences. Travelling in a small group you’ll share these experiences with like-minded people, which is why our adventures are popular with solo travellers.

In 2012 90% of passengers rated their holiday overall as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ and 79% rated ‘Value for Money’ as ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.

Our team in the UK consists of 30 well-travelled professionals who regularly go on our trips. We pride ourselves on our friendly and helpful Travel Consultants who can offer a personal view on many trips.

Worldwide Adventures

We run a range of adventures including trekking trips, safaris, cultural journeys and activity weeks to every continent which generally attract people aged 28 - 45.

UK’s leading family adventure specialist

The Adventure Company is also the UK’s leading family adventure holiday specialist.
We take more families on adventure holidays each year than any other adventure tour operator, and offer a wide range of trips to suit different ages and interests, including dedicated adventures for teens and their families, solo parent departures and exciting wildlife, activity or cultural adventures.

Looking to the skies

Our sister brand Explorers also runs trips to witness stunning celestial events from eclipses to meteor showers, the Northern Lights to stargazing tours.

We’re part of Intrepid Travel

In 2012, The Adventure Company merged with the global tour operator, Intrepid Travel which has almost 25 years’ experience of taking travellers on adventure holidays and offers more than 1,000 trips to over 100 countries.

Both companies were already part of the PEAK Adventure Travel Group, a joint venture between TUI Travel and Intrepid Travel. By joining together we can now offer our customers a wider range of trips, guaranteed departures on most trips and more departure dates.

In our brochures and on our website, you will notice that a number of trips are run by Intrepid. On these you may be travelling with customers who have booked with Intrepid Travel or The Adventure Company.
