About Us – Another World Adventures
Another World Adventures is on a mission to enrich lives and make the world feel big again by helping busy adventure seekers discover extraordinary journeys.
Through our website we curate a handpicked collection of remarkable adventures from inspiring providers around the world that you can book with directly.
How it all began
The idea for Another World Adventures was created when Tori Howse and Larissa Clark met on board a 100 year old Tall Ship during a Transatlantic sailing voyage from Europe to Brazil in 2011. It was the voyage of a lifetime yet half the bunks on board were empty. Everyone they spoke to about the trip replied “I had no idea I could do something like that”. Not content that so many people had missed out on such an incredible opportunity Larissa and Tori set about creating a place where adventure seekers could easily find inspiring and extraordinary travel experiences to join. Not a travel agency nor a tour operator, Another World Adventures is the place to find and book a collection of unforgettable trips that you won’t find anywhere else, directly with the people who run them.
Tori spent much of her career working on climate change projects. From this lifelong interest in the environment came her love of travel. She believes travelling with local expert operators and guides offers the best kind of travel experience.
Big landscapes, like sailing through the wilderness of British Colombia or horse-backing through Mongolia and Kazakhstan, are the stuff her travel dreams are made of.
As someone whose life changed direction while on a Transatlantic sailing adventure, Tori knows first-hand the impact these journeys can have.
Larissa comes from a family that loves to explore. She’s lived and worked on projects in Thailand, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, India, Canada, U.S. and Spain and has explored six continents for fun. She believes that it’s the journey, not just the destination that makes travel so meaningful to personal growth.
“I love helping people achieve extraordinary things and visiting unique and unusual places. My grandfather always said, ‘Travel is the best form of education,’ and I know he’s right.”
Larissa loves working with operators that are as passionate as she is about the personal and social impact of travel. She dreams of a voyage to Antarctica and to sail around the Pacific Rim.
We’re on a mission is to make travel dreams a reality for busy adventure seekers by helping them find and connect with experienced specialist operators. The operators we work with are experts in their fields – a mix of small local and family run outfits and international outfits. In all cases the operator’s travel philosophy must be aligned with ours – to enrich lives through travel and drive positive benefits to the people and places they explore while delivering extraordinary adventure experiences.
All the trips are great adventures. From adventure challenges to ‘trip of a lifetime’ sailing voyages and activity holidays the trips are either small group fixed date departures, private departures or tailor-made adventures. They range in length from a long weekend to six month epics and are suitable for solo travellers, couples or groups.
Whether it’s the thrill of a wildlife encounter, achievement of a personal endurance challenge, romance of creative and cultural immersion or an ocean wilderness escape, each trip offers something out of the ordinary. You’ll more than satisfy that niggling curiosity to try something new, somewhere new. We love weird and wonderful modes of travel and spending time with others who appreciate the flexibility and sense of humour often needed to really enjoy a really authentic adventure.
The unusual trips we select are very much about the journey, both personal and physical, not just the destination. Environmentally and socially considerate they are extraordinary off the-beaten-track experiences to really write home about. You won’t find coach tours and drive-by photo ops, just adventures that make you think “ooooh”. We search out honest, gritty, exciting, unusual and exhilarating experiences to get your heart racing and that take you to the heart of a place and its people.
So, whatever your motivation to get away, let us inspire you with an extraordinary journey and get you packed off on the trip of a lifetime. For more detailed information about us and how we work please see the disclaimer below.
