About us

World Adventure Tours is a small family run company located in Uppsala, Sweden. We believe in the know-how and experience of the people who live and work locally. That’s why we don’t make our adventure packages ourselves. We get them from the most qualified: the locals. In short: we exist to put you in touch with reliable local travel companies so that you can get the best possible adventure experience. We also provide travel guarantees, insurance and reliable payment options.

We have our priorities straight. All adventures with us will be ethical, green and fair. By that we mean that your once in a lifetime adventure will not have a negative impact on the wondrous destinations that welcome us. This goes for the environmental impact as well as the social and economic effects of tourism. We have all the important certifications, but most importantly, by booking locally through us most of your money end up in the hands of the people doing most of the work. This benefits local development and economy in a way that, for example, charities cannot.

We have a small selection of destinations and adventures to offer you. This is because we carefully select them from local companies that we know and trust to ensure quality. We want to have a personal relationship with every single person that you are going to meet on your adventure -from agents and hotel managers to guides and drivers.

We have arranged a travel guarantee with the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (Kammarkollegiet). The travel guarantee means that you will be able to receive compensation if any part of your package trip or linked travel arrangements is cancelled in the event that we should become insolvent. The travel guarantee that we have arranged means that you are entitled to compensation for the unfulfilled part of the package trip or linked travel arrangement that we are responsible for.
