Our Mission

Wanderlust Journeys is about creating a like-minded community of travellers who have a deep desire to explore and connect with everything around them rather than just ticking off the sights.

Our role is to remove the tedium and logistics of your travel as much as possible and connect you with the local people, so you can dive straight into the heart and soul of the Himalayas.

Whether you are an adrenaline junkie, off-road adventurer or prefer your travel slow and comfortable, we will craft the perfect itinerary for you.

Our mission is to design meaningful travel for you


All your questions answered

Before departing, we make sure you have all the information needed to make informed choices on your itinerary.


Listen to your needs

We create unique, flexible handcrafted itineraries that are based on your desires.

Give you the skills

Our dedicated local guides will make sure you have the local knowledge and time, to explore and discover in your own way

Friendships

We provide the opportunities to share your stories with locals, explore differences and develop lifelong friendships

Giving back

Together we are building independence for the local communities

Journey continues

Not only will your journey invigorate your senses and ignite your creativity, we help to make it continue long after you return home

What we do differently


We don't have cookie cutter itineraries with multiple departure dates. 

Our first love is creating a fully customised journey exclusively tailored to your individual needs. Or if you are looking for new travelling companions, we also offer a few, specialised group adventures every year. Each one is an incredible insight to a unique part of the Himalayas. 

With our intimate knowledge of the Himalayas, close connection with the people and purposefully staying small and focused, we are able to concentrate on your travel requirements, providing you with exceptional service that will make a difference.

We believe in travel with integrity

We strive for sustainable travel


There is no way around it, flying is not great for the environment, but the airline companies are now more meaningfully engaged in dramatically reducing their carbon footprint.

Until they can do this effectively, we will carbon offset your travel. It’s by no means perfect but it’s a start and we continue to search out the most effective environmental ways to travel around from transport to accomodation.

We are fighting the proliferation of single use plastic water bottles by providing you with a self-cleaning water bottle that purifies. This will reduce the need for single use plastic bottles in your hotel or accomodation and it is yours to keep.

There are some things you can do to travel more sustainably. If possible be away longer, to maximise the flight miles. Spend more time exploring an area, especially on foot, rather than traveling to a new distant location everyday. Journeys like our trekking and cycling tours are wonderfully low impact.

We will continue to search out the most sustainable ways to travel in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet and adjust our tours accordingly.  

Our planet is precious and we want you and future generations to be able to travel and enjoy everything it has to offer.
