Adventure for the modern-day explorer

Small group adventures to exceptional destinations. We offer a mixture of trekking holidays and cultural tours, so you will always find an adventure to suit you. We always use local guides and teams, and never have more than 12 clients in a group.

Travelling responsibly and supporting local communities, we are small enough to tread lightly, but big enough to make a difference.

“What a wild adventure with YellowWood in Ethiopia! I have no words to describe the beauty of this country and the experience of walking through it. This was my first ever hiking holiday and I would recommend it to anyone.”

Jessica Henrich, Cape Town

“This was really quite a remarkable period of time, a really a great experience travelling in Iran! YellowWood did a terrific job in putting this together; it was both an extremely exciting, enjoyable, but also an eye-opening experience. Thanks to all the team, and I hope we have an opportunity to adventure again sometime!”

… and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
