Our vision and values

We are pioneering when it comes to adventure and responsible in everything we do. Discover our vision and our values to learn how we're putting adventure and experience at the heart of our award-winning formula.



Adventurous in our outlook, pioneering in our ways.

To us a true adventure means getting under the skin of the places your travelling to and gaining unique memories that will last a lifetime, and so this is always what we aim to achieve on our holidays. 


We trust in others and are trusted to do the right thing.

Every new trip we create is tested by Explore staff, our local partners or Explore Leaders to ensure it offers the best experience possible. We also listen to the customer feedback we receive and continually review our trips to ensure they remain the best they can be. And, as a member of all the leading tour operator organisations - such as AITO, ATOL and IATA - you can trust us to get your holiday just right.


In everything we do. 

We are committed to ensuring our trips leave as light a footprint on the world as possible. We are always striving to be more responsible; from working with a number of environmental charities, to stopping elephant rides on our trips, to installing rooftop solar panels at our Hampshire HQ to offsetting CO2 emissions, it's our mission to do everything we can for our planet.


We make it happen. 

We live, breathe, eat and sleep adventure travel – it's not our jobs, it's our way of life. When we're not personally test-driving our trips to make sure they're the best they can be, we're heading off on adventures of our own. But as well as adventure travel, we also have a passion for excellent customer service: we insist on the best from our staff and suppliers to elevate your trip to the extraordinary.


Fun to travel and to work with. 

What could be more fun than sending people off on holiday to the world's most incredible spots? Whether you are off on a weekend away or a month-long discovery trip, we work hard to pack in as much fun and excitement as possible – you're on holiday after all.
