A safe return to adventure

International Expeditions is committed to the safety of our travelers, expedition leaders, staff, and the people in the communities we visit around the world. It’s just as important now as it was 40 years ago, and today we are even more dedicated to crafting innovative, sustainable, responsible, and safe adventures that allow you to discover your true nature. With a focus on nature and ecotourism, our expertly-guided expeditions are well suited to safe and healthy travel.

Since our very first expedition, we have specialized in taking our explorers into nature’s most untouched wilds. This has been made possible by our decades of logistical expedition experience and the expertise of our team who work closely with local and international authorities to acquire the regulatory approvals that have allowed us to discover these untouched wonders.  

International Expeditions is pleased to share that we have received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels Stamp, which provides travelers with additional assurance that we have adopted global health and hygiene standards designed to keep your travels as safe as possible.

Behind the scenes we’ve been introducing enhanced safety protocols in response to COVID-19-and have now launched our 2020 Travel Safety Charter, which is also in line with the World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Safe Travel protocols for tour operators.
