    “I founded 10Adventures with the idea of helping travellers to find their ultimate adventure; whether that means exploring the backcountry close to home or trekking through some mountain range halfway around the world. In my mind, exploration is all about being prepared, and we want our travellers to have every advantage to ensure a successful adventure."

    Why 10Adventures?

    At 10Adventures, we believe that travel is so much more than just taking “a trip”. The right travel experience is an invitation for us to let our guard down, open up to what the world around us has to offer, and to spend time enjoying meaningful experiences with the ones we love.

    Authentic, immersive, and memorable. Those three worlds alone should be the cornerstone of an adventure holiday, which is why we specialize in personalized travel experiences at 10Adventures. There is no one size fits all when it comes to travel, so why should you settle for anything less than the perfect adventure?

    Book A Tour With 10Adventures

    10Adventures tours are built around authenticity, allowing travellers to become fully immersed in a destination and experience what life is like directly from those who know it best: the locals.

    We've curated over 1,250 tours in 82 countries around the world to ensure that there's a 10Adventures experience for every type of traveller out there. From intrepid adventures in the form of hiking tours, bike tours, and winter activities, to cultural experiences, wellness retreats, and wildlife excursions; there are countless ways to get out and explore our incredible planet.

    As a team of explorers ourselves, we love to cover everything the world has to offer, from lesser-visited destinations to the most popular travel experiences out there. Iconic European routes like the Tour du Mont Blanc, Camino de Santiago, and Laugavegur Trail are perennial favourites, but there are plenty of destinations around the world, such as Chile's Torres del Paine and Peru's Amazon Rainforest, that have been exploding in popularity over the last couple of years.

    Whether your bucket list includes biking through the Italian countryside, trekking high up in the Himalayas, or shark diving off the coast of Australia, our team is always available to help you plan your perfect adventure.

    The History of 10Adventures

    In the summer of 2015, I was on an early morning hike near Lake Louise when I noticed something peculiar: everyone was carrying (and consulting) a physical guidebook. How was it that that in today's Internet age - where a seemingly endless supply of information is always at our fingertips - there was no online source that could replace the age-old guidebook?

    Over the coming weeks I set out to do some research. What I found was that there were plenty of websites that had hike descriptions, but a total of zero focused on the best hiking routes in the best regions on earth. Furthermore, most of these sites had either generalized, incorrect, or insufficient information – definitely not enough to replace a guidebook. Of the select few that were somewhat useful, I found that they were focused only on a limited geographical area, and a user could spend hours trying to find the information they were looking for - if they were able to find it at all.

    With the realization that the needs of outdoor enthusiasts weren't being met, I set out to create and, two sites related to hiking and travel respectively.

    My instincts immediately told me that this was an idea to be pursued, so I quit my job and called in the help of friends and colleagues to spend the summer of 2016 designing the website and travelling around North America to find the best hikes the continent had to offer. We explored ten incredible mountain regions: Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks in the USA and Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, Whistler, Canmore and the Icefields in Canada.

    The initial goal of 10Adventures was to make it easy to get outdoors and be active, providing the tools needed to explore the world and get up close and personal with nature.

    Our team found the most invigorating outdoor activities in some of the world's most exciting regions, crafted guidebook-quality information about each hike, and brought in expert contributors and writers to focus on quality route descriptions.

    We launched in late August and saw astonishing results - convincing me that there was a need for what we are doing and providing the motivation to grow  10Adventures further.

    Looking back to those early days, it is amazing to see how far 10Adventures has come. We've grown from a small site that focussed on providing quality hiking information to a tour marketplace that offers custom travel experiences in over 80 countries around the world.

    This natural evolution has allowed us to focus on what matters most in the world of adventure travel: ensuring that each and every 10Adventures traveller has an authentic experience that enables them to make memories and explore the world.
