Holiday information

We are an adventure travel company with an emphasis on responsible practices, winner of the World Responsible Tourism Awards in 2009 and 2014. We have offices in Kenya, Nepal, Morocco, Russia, Malaysia, Tanzania, London and Northern Ireland.

Our mountain treks and climbs include some of the most iconic in the world, like Mount Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Everest, Aconcagua, Toubkal and many of the great Himalayan peaks. We trek in many of the greater ranges like the Himalayas, Andes, Alps, Atlas and Caucasus. All our trips are guided and very professional, we use international mountain leaders and locally qualified guides.

We run school trips to Nepal, Kenya and Borneo alongside our charity Moving Mountains, and we organize many charity trips and volunteering trips which benefit local communities.

The company was started by British mountaineer Gavin Bate who has travelled and climbed all over the world and currently lives in London with his wife and son. AA offers a personal service and a great holiday, and is committed to responsible tourism.

I went into this trip with an open mind and I was just blown away. The level of professionalism displayed by the staff was amazing, the area of the country I was taken through was unparalleled in its beauty, and the food and culture and warmth of the people I met gave me a good learning experience. It was the best trip of my life!
