HAVE THE KERNEL OF AN IDEA FOR A GREAT MULTIDAY TRAIL RUN? A MEANDERING MISSION, OR AN EPIC EXPEDITION?
But don't have the time or wherewithal to make it happen? After all, these things take huge logistics, and all you want to do is run. Let someone else take care of the nitty gritty. Just make sure the food's good, the wine is quality and the bed is comfy, right? And throw in a few quirky extras will you?
Sure. That's what Tour de Trails specialises in: making your dream run a reality. [sorry no road runs - off the beaten - and definitely way off the bitumen - track only!]
Tour de Trails will listen to your wish list, advise on feasibility, carry out the research necessary and present back an entire trip plan. We can then also handle the actual logistical load and host the trip for you, anywhere in the world. The wilder, the more off piste, the better.
You benefit from experts in the field, trained run guides with wilderness certification, including first aid.

book travel and accommodation

Clients can be involved in as much or little of the planning process as they wish to be, with the confidence that safety and security is as much a priority as adventure.

Bespoke tours can be for individuals or for groups of up to 15. We also deal with NGOs, not for profits and charities and can organise fundraising missions on any scale.
