Australian Walking Holidays is proud to be part of the The World Expeditions Travel Group.


The World Expeditions Travel Group is an independently owned, Australian adventure travel company that began in 1975, when Australian Himalayan Expeditions commenced its operations with trekking holidays in Nepal. 


In 2005, the company created UTracks to provide guided and self-guided walking and cycling holidays in Europe. The European operations were strengthened in 2012 when World Expeditions acquired UK company, Sherpa Expeditions and its extensive UK walking programme.
