  • Enjoying the sunshine, reading maps on a Tasmanian Expeditions trek |  <i>Don Fuchs</i> Custom itineraries Your favourite trips - your way!

    Make your trip that extra bit more special and have your adventure tailored for you. Most of our trips can be tailored as a private adventure, which means you can organise to take a detour or linger a while longer at a destination, include additional activities, travel on a certain date or include extensions to your trip.

  • Biker at the Bay of Fires |  <i>Andrew Bain</i> Off-the-rack itineraries Private departures for your group

    You don't need to re-invent the wheel if you're after a private trip. Simply select a private departure from one of our many departures already available, and we can lock away the date for you, subject to group numbers.

  • Kayaking on Coles Bay, beneath the Hazards Choose your dates Flexible departures 

    Departing on a specific tour date doesn't suit everyone, so if your group wants to travel on a certain date we can usually arrange a private departure.
    Dates are based on availability at time of booking.

  • Walking on Flinders Island |  <i>Graham Freeman</i> Personalalised service With a personal travel consultant 

    Organising a private departure comes with the added benefit of working directly with our Groups team, who are experienced in the destinations we visit and are able to offer local insight, add unique personal perspectives and help make your private trip the very best it can be.

  • Exploring the spectacular Walls of Jerusalem National Park |  <i>Caro Ryan</i> Independent journeys private tours available

    While some trekkers like to travel in groups, some also like to travel independently and enjoy the benefits of a truly comprehensive itinerary with the freedom of a private tour. Select tours are available for travellers who wish to travel with a guide, yet without the group.

  • Camping on the Overland Track |  <i>Larissa Duncombe</i> Flexible travel style Unique experiences suited to you

    Booking a private or custom trip allows us to be as flexible as we can with our pricing - so just tell us how much you've got to work with, and we'll work within your budget.

Adventures in Tasmania are more enjoyable when you know that only the safest and best equipment is being used on your trip. Over the past 3 decades Tasmanian Expeditions has learned what outdoor gadgets and gear work in wild places, and what does not. Tasmanian Expeditions only provide quality, lightweight, well maintained equipment, whether it’s included in the trip cost or available for hire.


Private Groups & Flexibility

The holidays featured on this website are just a starting point; we have the capability and experience to create unique wilderness adventure almost anywhere - for almost anyone - in Tasmania.

Our customised private group itineraries offer the same personalised service and exceptional value we've become known for. If you would like to discuss a private Tasmanian itinerary, please contact our team in Launceston to discuss your itinerary, budget, group size and any other special request you may require.

Choosing your adventure

We recognise that many of our travellers have not been on a ‘group trip’ before. Yet what our departures provide is both structure and flexibility, allowing you plenty of freedom within the framework of the itinerary. You’ll find that with our maximum group size at 16, you’ll travel in a minimal impact style with a great group of like-minded travellers, many of whom will undoubtedly become lifelong friends.

We think small is good. Our scheduled group departures cater to no more than 16. For our Polar voyages, the number of passengers varies according to the voyage you choose, so you can expect anything from 48 to 198 on board. We strongly believe that small group travel allows you to forge lifelong friendships with your fellow travellers and even your guides and support crew while enjoying an authentic and well catered experience.

We have offices on three continents which means your travelling companions will be just that – international and wonderfully eclectic. Part of small group travel means that although travellers come from various locations and backgrounds, you will be travelling with like-minded companions who, like you, are keen to share the experience and forge lifelong friendships.

World Expeditions does not require single travellers to pay a surcharge for travelling alone on the vast majority of our trips. Our holidays are primarily on a twin share basis, so if you are joining the group as a solo traveller, we will match you with someone of your own gender. The choice is yours however; if you prefer not to share, we offer single supplements that will guarantee a single room and/or tent for you. Your trip notes will outline the options in relation to single rooms.

Fitness is an important aspect of our trips, with each itinerary carefully graded for ease of selecting the adventure that best suits you. Detailed information, including suggested pre-trip training, can be found in the trip notes and pre-departure information. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the physical requirements of your trip and speak to our staff if you have any questions. View our trip grading system for more detail as to how we grade the activity levels on our adventures and the suggested physical preparation.

Your well-being is our top priority on all trips. While our operations team frequently reviews every aspect of your adventure and the regions visited, we also receive constant updates provided by our local partners and Government Travel warnings and plan our operations accordingly. World Expeditions are 100% committed to your safety and follow specific protocols, safety analysis and risk assessment. For up-to-date information on travel warnings and advice, view our Travel Advisory page.

We believe that adventure travel revolves around establishing a strong relationship with the people and environments in which we operate. Our responsible travel policies have been carefully developed to ensure that we minimise the impact of our presence and help to protect the regions we visit while contributing positively to the local community.

If the specified departure dates are not suitable, or if you would like to vary the itinerary, we would be happy to develop a program to suit your travel interests. We regularly organise tailor-made holidays for families, groups of friends, schools and charities. As a general rule, for a quote to match the brochure trip price you will need a minimum of six people in your group. Learn more about planning your own private group departure.

Detailed information on each of our trips is available for download from this website, and we are able to mail you brochures showcasing the overall portfolio of our destinations. Additionally we hold regular free information nights during which our experts provide first-hand advice and travel tips for our major destinations. If you aren’t sure where to start, you can contact your nearest World Expeditions office and speak to a travel consultant who will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

There are three ways to make a booking – online, over the phone or in person. Online bookings are made via the ‘Book Now’ button available on each trip page. Alternatively you can download our booking form and return it to your nearest World Expeditions office by email, fax or post. You can also visit one of our offices to book in person. In all cases, once we confirm your booking, we’ll send you comprehensive information regarding visas, vaccinations, gear, clothing and arrival details to ensure you are fully prepared for your adventure.

World Expeditions are an Australian owned company with over 40 years of experience in the field. Booking with us means you have direct access to your reservations consultant, allowing you to call, email or even drop into your local office to ask any questions that arise during your trip planning. Choosing to book with your local office means you are booking through a company you can trust.

No Fees for Charities

Unlike many other charity challenge providers, we do not charge charities service fees to operate a challenge, allowing you to raise more funds.

Custom Challenges

We offer you flexibility to customise a charity challenge to suit you needs and budget. Choose your own destination, departure date and charity.

Responsible Travel

For us it is important that our charity challenges protect the cultures and landscapes we visit. Sustainability is a central to our planning.
