Exodus Travels has over 45 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.
It’s all about adventure. That is what Exodus was founded upon over 47 years ago in 1974, and what the company is still all about. Discovering countries, cultures, environments, cities, mountain ranges, deserts, coasts and jungles; exploring this amazing planet we all live on.
“At Exodus, we know what makes you tick when it comes to adventures. 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 600+ itineraries across over 100 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 adventure.”

Where Exodus Stays
From camping in the desert to low rise family run hotels, converted farm houses and luxury safari lodges, Exodus provides both a unique and good quality accommodation which is well appointed and characteristic of the destination. Their accommodation is locally owned and operated with a 3 star standard across the board.
Local Leaders, Local Knowledge
Exodus guides have been chosen not only to look after your well-being but also to ensure you learn about the places, people, wildlife, history and culture of the places that we visit from passionate local leaders.
Walking & Hiking Tours
Walking and trekking is in Exodus’ DNA. With humble beginnings over 45 years ago when they led some of the first group trekking trips through the Nepalese Himalaya, they now offer the best range of walking holidays worldwide. Exodus’ trekking leaders are some of the most experienced hikers on the planet today, and long-running relationships with the local partners in each country ensure they are always giving back to the communities they visit. Exodus Travels uses local leaders where possible, stay in locally owned accommodation and pay some of the highest wages on big peaks like Kilimanjaro.
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.
Exodus has a team of dedicated cycling experts who are crafting the perfect adventures by bike and always working to improve their old favourites so there is plenty of variety to get you dreaming. The majority of their group trips are fully vehicle supported and they have e-bikes available on some of the popular European itineraries.
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.
Mixed Activity Tours
Can’t decide what you want to do on holiday or want to try it all? Exodus’ 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, their 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.
Wildlife & Polar Tours
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 Exodus’ expert local guides you’ll go further and get closer than you’ve ever been before.
Their 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.
