Arcadia Expeditions specialises in immersive historical and cultural journeys to some of the world’s most inspiring and exotic destinations. Arcadia’s exclusive curated experiences give our discerning clients uncommon access to sites and peoples that reward the curious mind. Each expedition tells a story, with our expert team of leading academics and local guides ensuring our travellers have an experience like no other. It’s like joining the making of a documentary, but without the camera crew.
We are a team of storytellers and adventurers who believe that travel is a vital part of life’s journey. Through exploration and adventure, our mission at Arcadia Expeditions is to immerse our travellers in the living history of civilisations, their cultures and peoples so they are inspired to gain a new perspective of the world and themselves.
When David Adams, a documentary maker and investigative journalist, and David Mannix, a leading travel industry professional, became friends in their hometown of Sydney, Australia, it didn’t take long for them to take a leap of faith in creating a business together based on their diverse set of skills and their shared passion for travelling to the world’s most exotic places.
They realised that if they combined their experiences in the right way, they could create a new style of expedition travel completely different to what other travel businesses were offering.
