We're proudly smaller than many other adventure operators and this means that we can focus on getting it right and giving our all to every trip that we operate. At each of our 20+ destinations around the world, we've set up our own local agency to provide a range of different trips for all abilities. You don't have to be an olympic athlete to go trekking in the Himalaya or even climb a Himalayan peak. Making challenging destinations accessible to every weekend trekker is what we do best, so whether your dream is to reach the ruins of Machu Picchu or scale volcanoes in south east Asia, let Kandoo Adventures help you achieve your aspirations. 

Small groups


Led by local guides and with a limit on group size to ensure minimum impact on the local environment, our open group departures are a great way to enjoy amazing adventures with like minded people. Joining one of our open group trips, you are sure to make life long friends through shared experience in some of the worlds most awe inspiring locations. 

Private trips


Bring your friends and family along for an amazing adventure organized just for you. On a private trip you can enjoy total flexibility so personalise your trip as much or as little as you like. Our local teams love nothing more than turning your dreams into reality so choose a date and route and we'll do the rest. We can arrange private trips that are much more competitively priced than you might expect.
