Adventure Alternative Expenditions & Treks
Adventure Alternative is an independent travel company which was started in 1991 by adventurer and mountaineer Gavin Bate, and developed during many years of organising and running expeditions around the world. It is now an established company with an emphasis on responsible travel and a high level of knowledge and experience. We have run trips to the summit of Mount Everest and to the middle of the Sahara Desert! We guide many types of trips from mountains to jungle, desert and arctic regions.
Our office is on the north coast of Ireland and we have long looked after Irish walkers and adventurers going round the world, but we also have many happy clients from England, Scotland, Wales, Australia, Canada and America, with a smattering from other countries like Norway, Netherlands and elsewhere. Chris and Andy have worked in the office for nearly fifteen years and have gone on many expeditions and trips themselves, and Rosie manages all the book keeping and finances of the clients.
