How do I prepare for an expedition?

Here are our basic guidelines for expedition preparation.


What kit, clothing and equipment do I need for expeditions?

Read our kit and clothing recommendations.


What travel insurance do I need?

This is an important – and absolutely compulsory – element of your pre-trip planning.
Read our travel insurance advice as this can be a complex issue. If you have questions concerning your particular expedition that aren’t answered in your Travel Instructions, we’d love to help give you peace of mind. Contact us at any time.


Are your Safety Plans and Risk Assessments robust?

Read about our rigorous, military-grade risk management methods.


Can you help plan my own expedition or give me advice?

We’d love to help you plan your next expedition professionally, and our Bespoke Adventure consultancy has been set up to do just this. Depending on your budget and time frame, we can help with anything from a stand-alone pre-departure risk or medical assessment to full planning, logistics, staffing and back-up on the ground. Contact us today to discuss your expedition aspirations. We are a small and very busy team so although we’d love to, are not able to provide expedition advice for ventures in which we are not involved.
