Adventure Alternative is an independent adventure travel company which was started in 1991 by adventurer and mountaineer Gavin Bate, and developed during many years of organising and running expeditions around the world. It is now an established company with an emphasis on responsible travel and a high level of knowledge and experience. We have run trips to the summit of Mount Everest and to the middle of the Sahara Desert! We guide many types of trips from mountains to jungle, desert and arctic regions but the majority are feasible treks and adventure holidays for the enthusiastic hiker.
