ABOUT

Established in 2016, Untamed World is an independent travel company specialising in exploratory expeditions and adventure travel. Our experienced expedition leaders combine passion for exploration and unfailing professionalism, leading daring adventures into some of the world’s most remote and untamed environments.

VENTURE THE UNKNOWN

Here at Untamed World, we’re all about exploration and adventure. Our exploratory expeditions are all about searching for new challenges, locations, and undertakings that no one has been to or done before. From pioneering first ascents in the rugged mountains of Kyrgyzstan to venturing into the hitherto unexplored jungle in Burma. Nothing and nowhere is off limits. Our adventure travel expeditions are less technically demanding but challenging none the less and include a combination of classic adventure challenges and wild new adventures of our own imagining. We go in search of adventure and give our team members the opportunity to venture into the wild and explore. Whether that be trekking through remote Himalayan mountain passes or canoeing down the Zambezi River across the plains of Africa, there’s plenty of variety whatever your taste in adventure may be.

TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY

We love adventure, travel and exploration but we think it’s important to do it responsibly in order to preserve the areas we visit for future adventurers and the local communities that call it home. Untamed World has a robust approach to responsible travel in order to minimise the environmental impact our expeditions have and also to respect local heritage and culture.

ADVENTURE WITH A PURPOSE

Fundamental to the Untamed World ethos is our Adventure With A Purpose approach. We believe that it is important to make a positive contribution to the local communities that we visit. All of our international expeditions are linked to a local charity where we work to build local partnerships and a portion of the profit from each team member on every expedition goes to the charity to deliver positive action within the local community.

To read more about the essential work that the charities we support are doing in their local communities take a look at our Adventure With A Purpose page.

OUR APPROACH

We’ve written these incredibly helpful pages to give you a bit of an idea of how we do things here at Untamed World; from the logistics of food and accommodation to what we expect from our team members. Untamed World offers real adventure, operating with small teams in remote locations. Our planning process to run these adventures is incredibly thorough, but remains flexible in order to deal with the unknown. We encourage you to keep an open mind as we utilise local food, local accommodation, and local transport, to achieve our objectives, all of which can make for an interesting experience.

PLANNING & RISK 

Untamed World takes the safety of all team members and staff very seriously. While expeditions are inherently risky we’re dedicated to mitigating risk as far as possible and we do this through investing heavily in our staff, planning process, and safety equipment that all expeditions are equipped with. This section of the website, while it might not be as exciting as the expedition pages, is incredibly important as it tells you everything we do to make sure you come back in one piece, with nothing more serious than a few blisters.

 

We’ve also popped a link in to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website which issues travel advice for individual countries which is worth a read.
