Adventure Alternative is pretty much what it sounds like: a travel company that offers something different from what tourism typically looks like. It was founded in 1991 and has expanded from a small expedition business. Currently, the countries in which the social enterprise works includes Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, Spain, Russia, Nepal, Borneo and Argentina.

The types of trips also vary from electrics and sabbaticals, school trips and gap years and safaris to international development focused, mountains, rainforests and treks.

"Our vision has been to run a tourism business that allows everyone involved in providing a holiday to share in the economic benefits," writes Adventure Alternative. "Although we help people travel and discover new places around the world, we believe that it is at a local level that tourism can really improve people's lives."
