World Expeditions

World Expeditions has been pioneering sensitive and responsible travel since it began operating as Australian Himalayan Expeditions in 1975.

World Expeditions provides, small group adventures to “off the beaten track” destinations that involve local people and their cultures first hand. The countries and the people they visit are custodians of the most spiritually diverse and colourful cultures on earth. This different form of wealth has qualities that can be experienced by anyone, “provided the experience is undertaken in a way that is sensitive to the beliefs of the culture, the needs of its people and the surrounding environment.”

Ethical Commitment:

Environmental sustainability

True sustainability in all of its business planning and operations. Specifically;

  • World Expeditions tour operations should be managed in a way where the natural and cultural values of the host region are undiminished in the long term.
  • Minimise environmental impact at every stage of the business. Wilderness tours should leave minimal trace of their passing. Office operations should be conducted with maximum efficiency and minimum waste.
  • Contribution to conservation. Where possible, World Expeditions will engage in partnerships with local environmental groups and/or land managers to actively campaign for conservation or promote environmental protection and/or rehabilitation.

Responsible travel

  • World Expeditions operations aim to maximise the positive benefits of tourism for host communities. This includes employment of local staff, using local suppliers, assisting in development of sustainable local businesses.
  • Minimise the negative effects that tourism can have. This includes ensuring that tourism does not divert resources away from local communities or drive up prices on local resources.
  • Provide opportunities for cultural exchange, where locals and visitors alike can share and learn from each other in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
  • Contribute to host community welfare. Where possible World Expeditions will engage in partnerships with local agencies in developing programs that can assist the host communities. This may be in health, education or environmental protection.
  • World Expeditions aims to educate its travellers, learning both about the destination and its local cultures as well as educating about appropriate behaviour to minimise impact.
