What a wonderful trip I had with my 18 year old grandson! It was a small group, all-Inclusive trip and filled with adventure every step of the way. My grandson enjoyed it as much as I did. The guides were knowledgeable and filled with passions during wonder for Yellowstone National Park. Everything was provided for without having to pull out your wallet. A terrific journey outdoors for the young and old! Kudos for Austin Adventures!

Expert Guide and Experience

The Patagonia trip with Active Adventures was exceptional in every way. Our guide, Alvaro was highly organized, professional and personable. A true leader, he understood how to work with each of us and cater to our specific ability and experience while keeping the overall group cohesive. Our guides knowledge for the geography, history, languages and fitness level conveyed. His passion for guiding and giving us the best experience possible was apparent every single moment. Our activities, hotels and meals were always flawless. Using Active Adventures after my excellent experience with Austin Adventures was the best choice. I will be travelling through Active Adventures and Austin Adventures again in the future.

Milford Track adventure

We had a really fun time with Active Adventures. We were on a guided hiking trip on the South Island of New Zealand. The food was good and the places we stayed over night were all different but quite enjoyable. The hikes were fabulous (though challenging!) Our two trip leaders were awesome -very knowledgeable, personable, and energetic. Unfortunately, 4 of us came down with Covid on day 5 and missed the rest of the trip. It might be helpful if Active Adventures required everyone to take a Covid test the day before leaving, just to decrease the odds of anyone else being exposed to someone asymptomatic on future trips.

    Our Commitment

    Active Adventures is proud to support Active Hearts Foundation - a charity founded by one of our long-standing senior guides in Nepal, Dan Keys. Active Hearts Foundation began as a small token of appreciation for the kindness and generosity our friends in Nepal have shown. Following the devastating earthquake in Nepal on April 25th 2015, all resources were initially channeled towards relief efforts and the rebuild - with the help of generous donations, over $100,000 was raised.
