Institute of Wander is an adventure travel company specialising in small group hiking trips to the wildest places on our planet. We believe that the world would be a better place if we all spent more time outdoors. On foot.
Trips & Journeys
Our hikes and journeys will take you to the heart of the wild. Sometimes, it takes days to get there. Sometimes, the wildest corners are closer than we think. On all trips, we move on foot through the landscape and sleep in tents or local guesthouses. We are passionate about local culture, storytelling and sleeping under the stars. Big hotels are a big no-no. Big emotions are a definite yes.

she takes you onto the kind of trips that were turned into medieval epics and romantic poetry."
