Big Adventure Travel Company was established by a bunch of serious world travellers in 2015. We have experience in 90+ countries. Our mission is to provide tailored, adventure travel “experiences” for those clients who seek to not only see the world, but to LIVE it. We are dedicated to “off the beaten path” expeditions, with an added sense of old world charm and culture. In this present age of “prepackaged everything”, we hope to revive the art of exploration.
We act as your private travel concierge before your expedition, helping to arrange everything from business visas to elephant rides in the jungle, and offer guided custom tours, as well as a 24 hour emergency telephone contact during your travel. We currently have five experienced, travel professionals based in the US to serve you, with 20+ operational staff based around the globe.
In 2017, Big Adventures expanded to include an Outfitter store, focused on equipping our travelers to go and explore. We offer a range of high quality outdoor apparel and gear at an affordable cost, with the end goal of making your dream adventures a reality.
