a different type of travel company

We work incredibly hard to make sure that each student who travels on our challenges has an incredible and safe experience. You can read below about some of the areas in which we strive to make sure that everyone who travels with us has a smooth trip. 



Years of Experience

We organized our first Kilimanjaro climb in 2008. Since then, we have gone on to take over 10,000 people on a wide variety of challenges all over the world. We carefully select our in-country partners based on their experience, track record, and ability to meet our ethical tourism standards. This experience allows us to pick hotels that are secure and have 24/7 security. This includes bedrooms that are lockable and making sure the surrounding area is safe for all travelers. We have well established connections with all local major hospitals in case any medical checkups are needed. Our guides on the ground are well trained in first aid and have many years of safety training, making them well prepared to guide our participants around their challenge.


Trusted Travel Advice

We constantly monitor the travel advice and alerts provided by the State Department and follow the advice that is passed on. You can view the state department's current advice for travel to all our destinations. 



We ensure that all of our students hold valid and appropriate travel insurance when they travel on one of our trips. We will provide you with all of the information you need to make sure that you have a policy in place which covers you for everything you need! 

24/7 Support

We have an emergency line that can be called 24/7, 365 days a year. Your safety is of utmost importance to us. You will be able to speak with an expert that can provide assistance, no matter what the situation.
