The Malik Adventure way of doing trips

Great tours are well planned

We put a lot of research into crafting our tours to make sure we enable travelers to smoothly visit hard-to-reach places far off the beaten path.

Standing still is going backwards

We believe that same principle applies to our bodies and minds. It’s about moving your personal limits: mentally by exploring culture and tradition, and physically with help of our expert guides.

There is no history

Our vision of connecting to local culture is not about knowing the people but growing up with them. You are already under the skin of the local culture – you're talking to us.

Adventure is individual

What defines us is the contact we make with each of our guests. Adventure lies behind every corner and it is about a mental perception and an idea. It's only natural that it means different things to different people and we make tailor made tours whenever possible.

Earth laughs in flowers

We do our best to keep the 'flowers' alive and make the impact of our trips on the environment minimal, from choosing our gear to reducing use of motored vehicles.

Responsible travel

Our responsibility is to ensure that travel has only positive affect on local culture. That means dosing influence of travellers to avoid mass touristification. We are proud to say that all our partners are family run businesses that live locally and tourism is only one of their sources of income.

Our manifesto
There are no highest mountains, deepest canyons or oldest ruins here.
But there are still great adventures.
It is not about finding the most hyped destination, or necessarily the one with best reviews.
Adventure lies behind every corner.
It’s not about reducing your expectations but raising them for every place in the world.
It’s not in one special place or in one special person.
Adventure is wherever someone is trying to find it.
