Embark is an adventure travel company that offers once-in-a-lifetime adventures for those who want to explore the most remote corners of the planet.
Embark specializes in custom adventure travel – each group typically has a unique itinerary, works with us on their itinerary, and picks the dates of their travel. Embark Adventures is always working toward two main priorities, developing trips that are both active and cultural, with an extreme focus on interacting with local communities and breaking down cultural barriers.
We are a team that lives and breathes travel; we know what our clients want, and as such we see them as travelers, not tourists. We have organized hundreds of adventures around the world, focusing on destinations we know and understand. Ask us for some of our references.
Lots of companies provide region-standard trips; Embark goes above and beyond. We organize unique itineraries along the roads less traveled, designing adventures that allow our travelers to be pioneers and really get inside the head of a place.
We focus on finding and training the best guides in the industry, with specialists who are prominent in several fields – mountain guides, historians, archaeologists, cultural anthropologists, and much more.
First and foremost, we believe in paying fair wages and supporting the people and the environments where we travel. We believe in the places we travel, and invest money back into these communities, supporting local nongovernmental organizations such as the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project in Tanzania.
