ABOUT RAW TRAVEL
RAW Travel is a boutique tour operator specialising only in iconic walking adventures. We don’t try and run trips everywhere but prefer to offer real expertise and useful advice on the ones we do. Though it’s an intentionally small list we’ve got walks for complete beginners right through to demanding treks that will satisfy and thrill even veteran adventurers. We offer both guided and self-guided trips in our chosen destinations backed by an unusual flexibility in delivering what our clients desire. We’re certainly not new at this game and have a long history of organising great active trips worldwide.
We enrich people’s lives and empower them to realise their travel dreams
– taking on the challenge of completing some of the world’s most iconic walks.
At RAW Travel we don’t just plan itineraries: we take our clients on a journey, working with them to plan their dream travel experience. We consider their fitness, achievements and motivations and then together we map out their personalised adventure.
We also run Charity Challenges, which raise money for great causes. Participants in these trips get to step out of their comfort zone to trek, bike and climb throughout the world all in aid of charity.
