Overland Track

The trip was amazing all round. We had a great group of people and the weather could not have been better. I was truly impressed with the guides and their passion for Tasmania. The trip was well run without feeling overly structured. Great scenery, great food and amazing people exceeding all of my expectations

Charity Challenge Specialists - Our experience adds to yours

Headway Jersey

World Expeditions is a pioneer of the charity challenge concept. Drawing on over four decades of experience delivering high quality trekking & adventure travel holidays, we have been offering exciting charity challenges since the development of the charity fundraising concept back in the 1990’s. To focus on this growing and specialist area we have created a separate division of World Expeditions named Huma Charity Challenge which looks after all fantastic fundraising and charity trips.

Very few operators can match our experience. Since 1975 we have obtained a wealth of experience trekking in many of the world’s most remote destinations. As leading experts in adventure travel it was only natural that we were chosen by charities in the 1990s to assist them with some of the first charity challenge events in the UK. Since then we have organised hundreds of successful charity challenges in amazing parts of the world, and continue to work closely with our varied charity partners and experienced local teams to deliver exciting itineraries.
