Hi! Our name is “Beyond-The-Path”. This name is not just chosen randomly. We tirelessly search for original solutions so that you may experience unforgettable moments while travelling with us.

We are so unique because we put particular emphasis on your perceptions and experiences in the extensive selection of our proposals. We are much more than just a virtual agent. We are somebody with whom you will discover the stunning beauty of the places to which we will take you.

“The one who lives sees a lot, the one who travels sees more.” – Arabic proverb *****
We design our expeditions so as to combine, as far as possible, the opportunity to visit the selected locations with the individual needs of our tour participants. We aim to prepare expeditions that would be exceptional and inspiring, and conducted while keeping the highest safety standards, in particular owing to meticulous planning. While staying at our destinations, we try to describe them as extensively as possible, avoiding stereotypes and labels. A very important element of our expeditions is the support to local communities and minimisation of the negative environmental impact of our travelling. We want our tour participants to draw all possible benefits from travelling, by getting to know other people and their culture, connecting with the wilderness, getting new insights into the processes currently going on in the world.
We are passionate about travel and eager to share with our tour participants our curiosity of the world and constantly enriched knowledge of the places we visit. We have behind us years of experience with preparation and conduct of expeditions to even the most remote regions of the world. We have decided to create a travel agency that will offer unique and out-of-the-ordinary expeditions involving close encounters with the wildlife and culture of the visited places.
We attach great importance to sharing our knowledge of the natural environment and issues related to wildlife conservation and human rights on both local and global scale.

Successes and effects:
We keep evaluating the effects of our work and continue to raise the bar.
The expeditions we create incorporate the ideas of minimisation of negative environmental impacts and provision of maximum support to the local communities residing at the places we visit. During our expeditions, we avoid the activities which might violate human rights or have negatives effects for the culture and tradition of the places we visit. Our expeditions are prepared with respect for animal rights and environmental protection regulations.
We use our best efforts to minimise the risks that might occur in the course of our journeys. We attach great importance to making our tour participants aware of the special features of the places we visit. We constantly monitor the news for any potential threats that might occur during the trip. Owing to many years of collaboration and good contacts with our friends at our destination, we keep updating the information we subsequently provide to our tour participants. We are especially careful about that when we travel to the regions of the world where we may find ourselves in danger caused by the forces of nature or human activity.
We travel in small groups using the services of small local tour operators. We select the places for overnight stay – dependent on the nature of the expedition and our destination – so as to ensure comfort and safety to our tour participants. We are committed to find accommodation facilities at perfect locations for affordable prices. We collaborate with local contractors who are our good acquaintances and often have become our friends. During our expeditions, we do our best not to create a barrier between our tourists and local communities. We focus on exploring local culinary traditions – we treat the cuisine as a testimony to the cultural richness of the visited area. When designing the itinerary of our expedition and during the expedition itself we try to take into account the individual needs of the tour participants as far as possible. Our favourite tours to organise are those with specific themes – nature discovery and history-oriented ones – and active trips (mountain hikes, scuba diving trips, kayaking trips, etc.).

For many years Dominik has been interested in traveling to blank spots on tourist world maps. As years went by an idea sprung to enable more people to travel to countries and places that are not popular tourism destinations. His experience delivered from his trips to Africa, South America and Middle East supported the “Beyond-The-Path” initiative. Travelling is not only a way to “tick” subsequent countries and tourist attractions. Tours created by the entire team of BTP Adventure are manly meetings with people who live in the visited places and an attempt to learn more and better understand who they are and how they live.
