Visit unexplored lands

Go to places no one has even heard of and see things very few have ever seen. Real Expeditions has spent long years scouting the face of the Earth in search of the untouched, the authentic and the unusual. We have found lands and people unaffected by commercial tourism and areas about which very little is known. Join us on our adventures/expeditions where modern civilization is left behind.

Dedicated explorers - just like you

Good traveling company is essential on any trip! With us you can be sure to meet only like-minded fellow travelers who are part of a responsible and open-minded team. Learn from each other, swap stories over the campfire, give and get practical advice and exchange professional support. Face every challenge and admire all beauty as one team! Such special bonds last a lifetime!

Experience and knowledge: step by step…

Our badge system is designed to help you monitor your development as an adventurer/explorer. Starting as Traveler, move on to Adventurer, challenge your strengths and skills as Explorer, and finally graduate as a tried and tested Survivor. We help you with every step along the way: fitness plans, dietary advice and personal training courses. We take your survival seriously!

Stay high and dry with us!

All our equipment has been carefully tested and selected by our expedition leaders for each and every trip. Destination specific extras and free basic explorer packs are provided by our sponsors. We also offer our members unbeatable prices on extra gear (travel gadgets, clothing, and electronics) through our cutting edge partners in the travel adventure and extreme sport industry.

Help cultures live on

Wherever we go we try reducing the impact of our presence on the environment and to give back something to the indigenous people who welcome us. You will have a chance to get involved in active missions that help protect natural habitats, reduce carbon footprint and support local communities. At each destination we establish a local NGO, and channel 50% of trip's profits to various projects.

What's the difference: Expedition vs Adventure

Expedition

Our Expeditions category trips are the ultimate challenge for the prepared and experienced traveler. You will be embarking on multi-day hikes through unexplored areas. Crossing vast stretches of unmapped wilderness. You will be faced with survival challenges and you will take part in scientific explorations. Venturing to places that test your ability to persevere; pushing your body to the limit in the harshest conditions and with the most demanding activities. You will be an equal and important member of an efficient team.

Adventure

Real Expedition Adventure category trips are designed for those travelers who are in search of unusual and the authentic experiences, but who are not yet ready to meet the challenges that a hard-core professional expedition would pose. We have combined unique destinations with doable itineraries. Our adventures consist of easy to moderate hikes, cultural immersion trips and cross-country voyages where civilization is never too far away. But this does not mean that you need to miss out on the wild side of adventure travel.

"So wild and crazy! The people here are mad and free! Although I was happy to be in a group and not on my own….and the view from the mountain tops is worth having that saddle bum!" –Evelyn, The Netherlands.
The highlands on horseback, Guatemala.
"I just wanted to say thanks so much for everything. I've had one of the most extraordinary weeks of my life; I really enjoyed it, even when I thought I could push that pedal no more. Our guide couldn't have been better." –Liz Raleigh, USA.
The wheels of history: cycling though Cuba.
"I can only say that I was truly sorry when we had to head back to civilization! I must have seen more variety in these two weeks than in my whole life! It was tough and testing, but I will never forget the experience." –Dom Madwick, UK.
The forgotten Mosquito-coast, Honduras.
