Adventure Consultants is a world-renowned mountain guiding company with a legacy of climbing expeditions to the world's highest peaks, and wilderness treks to the more remote corners of the globe.

Our philosophy of only operating with small guided groups provides a more personalised service. This minimises environmental impact and continues to have a proven advantage in our success rates, superior to any other expedition operator.

We offer 78 expeditions, treks and wilderness journeys to the Himalaya, Antarctica, Arctic, South America, Greenland, Alaska and the Seven Summits in addition to a world class mountaineering guiding service and climbing school in New Zealand and Europe with our IFMGA / NZMGA mountain guides.

Whether you are taking your first steps into the realm of the outdoors, or are a seasoned adventurer, I believe you will find the quality of the experience offered on an Adventure Consultants expedition second to none, and I invite you to contact us to discuss your next adventure.

 Adventure Consultants has been rated in the Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth by the editors of National Geographic ADVENTURE magazine.
