Everest Anniversary Trek

The dinner and celebrations at Thyangboche Monastery were outstanding. Manoj, our tour leader, was fabulous - World Expeditions are lucky to have a man of his calibre and knowledge working for them. Thanks and commendations to all!

WHO IS THE WORLD EXPEDITIONS TRAVEL GROUP?

World Expeditions has specialised in organizing and operating small-group treks and adventure travel vacations and expeditions to the world’s most fascinating destinations since 1975 when the company was established in Sydney, Australia. The company has steadily grown with dedicated World Expeditions offices around the globe. Today, the World Expeditions Travel Group, which incorporates the company’s 9 brands, collectively offers diverse and complementary travel products catering to specific interests and segments within the international adventure travel market. The 10 brands - World Expeditions, Tasmanian Expeditions, UTracks, World Youth Adventures, Huma Charity Challenge, Sherpa Expeditions, Adventure South, Australian Walking Holidays, Great Canadian Trails and Yomads – offer different styles of adventures in different markets and all remain strongly aligned to responsible tourism practices.
Unlike all other major adventure travel companies in Australia, the World Expeditions Travel Group is the only independently-owned Australian company. Each year, the World Expeditions Travel Group operates more than 1500 scheduled small-group departures, plus many more private groups and tailor-made itineraries. World Expeditions is recognised as one of the world’s most sensitive operators committed to principles of responsible tourism and true sustainability.

OUR VAST ADVENTURE TRAVEL NETWORK

The depth of experience in our network is second to none. We work with the world's most experienced adventure travel professionals and have hosted lecture tours by the likes of Doug Scott, Simon Yates, Andrew Lock, Peter Hillary and Jon Muir. We own many of our operational bases: having offices on the ground in many markets ensures we keep our finger on the adventure pulse. We even have a French-speaking office in Montreal, and a French-language version of our website, Expeditions Monde.

The best way to stay in touch with our ever-changing world is to subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter called WE eNews! or see an update of our newest adventure trips. Follow the link to view samples of our recent newsletters.
