Plan a Customised Trip with us
A big part of our time is spent organising customised trips for individuals, couples and groups. From 24 hour city trips to 6 week long expeditions. Festival tours to ancestral searches. No request is too small, no project too big. Well….I mean….there are things that might be beyond us like climate change and nuclear proliferation but give us a call and I am sure we can help. Below you can check out a small taste of requests we have turned into trips in the last couple of years.
Kayaking in Afghanistan
In 2014 we were contacted by a group keen to kayak in Afghanistan. After two years of planning, permits and security assessments, we arranged the logistics for a private kayaking trip in Afghanistan, the first of its kind in the Panjshir region. You can view photos of this pioneering trip on our Facebook page.
The four friends, who have kayaked throughout northern Europe, India and Pakistan, agree the Panjshir river is as good as anywhere else in the world when it comes to white water. They even gave a kayaking workshop to the local football team.
Please get in touch if you would like further details about organising a kayaking trip in Afghanistan or any other ideas you have.
K2 Base Camp by Helicopter
Getting to K2 base camp usually takes a three-week round trip from Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. We had two guests that simply did not have the time for that. It was a case of if the mountain won’t come to Mohamed, then contact the Pakistan army and fly to the base camp of the world’s 2nd highest peak at the point where China, India and Pakistan converge.
Please get in touch if you would like further details about organising a K2 trip, a helicopter ride, or any other ideas you have.
Ancestry Search in Dagestan
We guided a lady searching for any trace of her family who were Mennnonites living in Dagestan at the turn of the 19th century. Our research got us a cover shot on Menonite Historian magazine.

Not all custom trips are world firsts. The majority are from travellers who for one reason or another, group travel does not suit them. Take the example of Robin. He wanted a week long trip in Iraqi Kurdistan. We discussed what he likes to do and his style of travel, created an itinerary and sent him off with one of our local guides. His experiences can be read on his blog.
Extreme Travellers International Conference
We have twice been asked by the ETIC to assist in arranging their conferences. A meeting of some of the world’s most travelled people. In 2017 we arranged the conference in Mogadishu with an add-on to Puntland. In 2018 we arranged for the conference in Baghdad with an add-on to Karbala, Najaf and Ur.
Mountain Biking in the Danakil Depression
In 2017 we assisted with the first ever mountain bike crossing of the Danakil depression in Ethiopia for the WOAM (Women on a Mission) team. They wanted something to push them out of their comfort zone and boy did they get it.
They’ve embarked on many projects and expeditions around the world, ranging from Siberia, Iran, Bhutan, Mongolia and more, but their journey across the Danakil was their toughest to date seeing them cover 200km over 6 days, with temperatures up to 50℃.
