Thankyou for such a great trip!!
Your care and attention to detail allowed us to relax and feel totally safe. Your generosity in lending me a rain jacket made all the difference and your management of my dietary issues is beyond compare. You're awesome. Really!'

Girls Nights Under the Stars
A Distinctive Adventure Experience
We trekked the Kokoda Track under the leadership & guidance of Rachel Dobson. Her level of care and attention to our travelling party was outstanding. Rachel’s experience and contacts in PNG provided us with opportunities not normally offered to trekkers and allowed us to gain insight into another culture as well as experience the historical significance of the track.

3142m and 15hrs later... We did it.
Mt Agung allowed us to become part of her. For an awesome and unforgettable moment, we stood on her summit and looked down on a magnificent part of the world. Something we will never forget. Thank you Small Journeys!

Amazing Belize
I was part of a trip run by Small Journeys to Belize in October 2012. I cannot thank Small Journeys enough for their professionalism, friendliness and expertise both in the lead up to the journey and throughout the journey. I would recommend this trip and the company to anyone.

Fantastic to deal with right from the start
Small Journeys ran a dog sledding trip that my wife and I were on in 2012. The Small Journeys Team were fantastic to deal with right from the start. The trip itself is amazing and the Small Journeys, with their expert knowledge of gear and areas made sure we were well prepared. Which meant we could enjoy our trip and those incredible dogs.

I would recommend Small Journeys adventures time and again.
Thanks you Rach at Small Journeys and extended team for the amazing trip to the magnificent Mt Agung in Bali, for helping me through the uphills, downhills and sharing the most unforgettable sunrise at her summit, a truly out of this world experience.
