Who we are


Small group and bespoke treks and tours


We are based in the south of England. We first visited Morocco in 1979 and then India in 1987 and have continued to return to both often. We founded our company because we love trekking and touring in the remote, unspoiled regions of these two fabulous countries. We are passionate about wanting to help others to enjoy wonderful times here as we ourselves continue to do. We have recently started to develop treks and tours in Nepal and Benin.

Our director, Alan Palmer, is author of Moroccan Atlas the Trekking Guide (Trailblazer Publications) and has contributed to three other guide books, Pakistan and The Silk Road, both published by Insight Guides, and The Rough Guide to Morocco . Additionally, he regularly writes articles for travel magazines and delivers talks and presentations on North-East India, Myanmar and Morocco at travel clubs and shows, both in England and in India.

He is:

  • a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS)
  • a member of the Royal Society for Asian Affairs (RSAA)
  • a life member of the British Moroccan Society (BMS)
  • Secretary of The 153 Club (Sahara)
  • a member of The Globetrotters Club
  • a member of the Pakistan Society
  • a TripAdvisor Destination Expert (DE) for Morocco

 What makes us different? 

Our company works exclusively with local guides and tour operators. Our company is founded upon the strength of our personal relationships with some of the best local guides in North-East India, Morocco, Nepal and Benin who were born in the region, passionately love the region and know it intimately. We know, trust and respect every one of them through our own experiences of trekking and touring with them as our own guides on our own expeditions. We believe that this intimacy, in conjunction with our own ethos and who we are, ensures that we stand apart from other companies in being able to provide you with the most personalised of trekking and touring experiences.
