Customised trekking and wilderness expeditions

We are a small business focusing on customised trekking and expeditions to the Himalayas, Papua New Guinea and Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The Himalayas has been our playground for nearly 40 years. Papua New Guinea is at Australia’s doorstep and offers genuine wilderness trekking in an untouched landscape free from modern intrusions. Many of our Papua New Guinea treks are battlefield tours of the major campaigns during the Pacific War, including the world-famous Kokoda Track.

We have an impeccable record for quality, safety, fun, adventure and learning. Our groups are small (between 4 and 12 people), and our treks are designed to cater to your needs — whether you are first venturing into the mountains or jungle, or you are a seasoned climber returning for another challenge.

Our team of experienced high-altitude guides

We have, on our team, Australia’s most experienced high-altitude climbers and guides. Between them, they have reached the summit of all 8,000 metre peaks on earth, with a combined total of 27 summits (including four of Mt Everest).

We are experts at managing risk and supporting expeditions to remote areas. We ensure that our trips provide a wonderful culinary experience and relatively comfortable accommodation, as our clientele appreciate being looked after.

Learning and growing through trekking adventure

One of our underlying philosophies is to educate, teach and allow individuals to learn and grow through the medium of adventure. We feel that empowering our clients makes their experience more meaningful and long-lasting.

Many of our clients have returned from our expeditions feeling fully recharged from hectic lifestyles. Others have found them to be life-changing experiences.

  • Just wanted to thank you for a great trek - even in my condition I still got a lot from the walk. I was coming good by Isurava and ate like a horse through the northern beaches so put on a few kilos before arriving back home. Will never forget the dawn service at Isurava - most moving I've ever been to, Gallipoli included.

  • My 2014 trip to Mera Peak with Peak Learning was life changing  – without comparison, it was the perfect way to revive, reset and recharge the batteries.  As a first time mountain climber I was naturally anxious about the adventure, but at all times in the lead up to, and during the climb I felt safe and secure in the organized and experienced care of Zac and Geoff our guides.

  • What an unforgettable experience! To walk such a scenic and historical track is both an honour and a humbling challenge. Zac's knowledge of the track and detailed recount of its proud military history is second to none. There is no better way to do the track than with Zac and his team of jovial local porters teaching you about local customs, food and the language to keep you entertained along the way. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I would highly recommend to most ages and fitness abilities.

  • I wanted to say a big thanks again. We all made it safely home. It's all sinking in and I wanted to thank you for all your efforts leading up to and during the Kokoda trek to ensure we had a memorable trip. We enjoyed the swims, the narrative and the coffee. Not necessarily in that order!
