Exodus Travels has 43 years of experience as the world’s leading walking/hiking and cycling company as well as having guided cultural and wildlife tours with a responsible travel focus.
At Exodus, we know what makes you tick when it comes to holidays. It’s a desire shared by so many others. A yearning to visit new places and come home with a real sense of what they’re all about. This means delving into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to its unique identity. At the same time, we always remember that we are only guests. So we travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimize our impact, to ensure that every Exodus holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.
This is a philosophy we take with us around the world, helping you reach some incredible destinations on 500 itineraries across over 90 separate countries. We also strive to provide as much flexibility and choice as we possibly can, making it simple for you to experience a very different holiday.
Exodus started life on 4 February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments.

Exodus are the world’s leading walking and hiking tour specialists. Trekking and guided walking trips are in our DNA, and we have been designing walking and trekking tours and expeditions for over 43 years. From our first few treks through the Nepalese Himalaya, our hiking adventures have come from humble beginnings to the most extensive collection of hiking trips worldwide.
Our trekking leaders are some of the most experienced trekkers on the planet today, and long-running relationships with our local partners in each country ensure we are always giving back to the communities we visit. We use local leaders where possible, stay in locally-owned accommodation and pay some of the highest wages on big peaks like Kilimanjaro.
Exodus offer over 150 of the world’s greatest walking and hiking tours and we’ve pioneered exciting new trekking routes, and fine-tuned our old favourite walks and treks to run seamlessly.
A bike lets you travel at your own pace, has minimal environmental impact and best of all, helps you finish your trip with a massive sense of achievement, and perhaps a little more fitness than when you started.
At Exodus we have a team of dedicated cycling experts who are crafting the perfect adventures by bike and always working to improve our old favourites so there is plenty of variety to get you dreaming. The majority of our group trips are fully vehicle supported and we have e-bikes available on some of our popular European itineraries. We are passionate about seeing the world by bike, but we understand that different people want different things from a cycling trip which is why we have created the largest selection of cycling tours out there.
If you thought a winter holiday began and ended with downhill skiing, then think again! Getting out into the snow is not just about enjoying the views (although they are pretty spectacular), but the sense of achievement when you realize you have just skied 15km in a day, walked on a glacier, led a team of huskies across Lapland or simply that you stayed up all night to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. Snowshoeing through ankle-deep powder, cross-country skiing among snow-veiled pines, or ‘mushing’ huskies across frozen lakes and sharing bright-eyed smiles with Sami reindeer herdsmen, with not a lift queue in sight, evokes quite a sensational feeling.
Exodus’ winter activity trips are winter tours with a difference! Cover a pretty landscape with some white stuff and your panorama is transformed into a beautiful winter playground. Relish every backdrop this winter with a difference and either glide through on skis, make your own tracks with snowshoes or mush your own dog team for a truly memorable experience.
Can’t decide what you want to do on holiday or want to try it all? Our mixed activity holidays offer a new challenge each day, whether you’re learning a new skill or simply discovering a fresh perspective of a different culture.
You could be zip-lining through Costa Rica’s rainforest; kayaking along the beautiful Dordogne; wildlife watching as you canoe the Zambezi River. You could be cycling through Vietnam’s rice paddies; whitewater rafting the wild beauty of the Pyrenees; or canyoning in Spain’s wild Sierra de Aitana. For a winter holiday with a difference, our mixed-activity winter trips are the perfect introduction to life in the snow, and include cross-country skiing, dogsledding and igloo building, all in stunning snow-wrapped landscapes.
From the Arctic to the African savannah, nothing beats the thrill of being breathtakingly close to some of the world’s most incredible wildlife. It’s the splash of seawater from a whale’s tail, stepping into a bear’s snowy footprint, canoeing past a jaguar basking on a riverbank, or waking up to the sound of trumpeting elephants. Then there are the Komodo dragons in Indonesia and the orangutans of Borneo or discover Darwin’s enchanted isles on a Galapagos Cruise, look into the amber orbs of a Bengal tiger in India or catch The Great Migration thundering across the mighty Mara River. These are the kind of life-changing moments you can an expect on a wildlife holiday with Exodus.
The evocative swirl of incense in a temple, a refreshing cup of chai on a desert roadside, or the wonder of the Taj Mahal at sunrise. These are just some of the magical experiences that will leave your senses tingling on our cultural adventures. And with our expert local guides you’ll go further and get closer than you’ve ever been before. Our cultural trips are pure, simple adventures to some of the most iconic lands and civilizations on Earth; from the Mayan world to bustling streets of Beijing, an Exodus cultural holiday is designed to take you into the heart of the country.
