About Us

Pioneer Expeditions Head Office is located in West Dorset on the Jurassic coast near the stunning Dorset iconic Durdle Door. We are always happy to discuss your travel plans in our office, so feel free to get in touch and organise an appointment – we would be delighted to meet you.

Welcome! We love to travel. As an adventure and wildlife operator, we have a real passion for finding the hidden gems in off-the-beaten-track destinations and love to share these unique and wonderful experiences with our clients. We strive in bringing the very best travel experiences to our clients from some of the most remote corners of the world. Whether it is through wildlife tracking, sea kayaking, snorkelling, trekking, rafting, cycling or observing wildlife in its natural environment, we want to share a real Pioneer experience with you. Pioneer Expeditions was founded in 2006 to offer real off the beaten track adventures

and extraordinary ‘Pioneer Firsts’ such as the North to South traverse of Liverpool Land in Greenland, and to be one of the few to trek the Kokoda trail in Papua New Guinea. As Pioneer have grown, we have developed our itineraries, still conquering the extreme adventure trips in places like Argentina and Komodo Island, but also having a special interest in wildlife; especially in Madagascar, Borneo, Costa Rica, and the Galapagos.  We have an unparalleled network of local partners who have expert knowledge of their country and love to give our clients the very best and unique experience.
