The Embark.org project was founded in 2013 by a group of friends with a strong passion for exploring the world together. After nearly a decade of experiencing unique cultures and adventures abroad, it became clear to us that the international travel community needed something better. Despite an abundance of travel books, reviews, and booking websites, adventure resources were scattered, tour booking was outdated, and inspiration was too often left out of the picture. So we set out to change things.
Embark.org is founded on the idea that simple tools, inspiring media and concise information can present users with a world that is beautiful and profound yet still within reach. Together with the knowledge and experiences of a growing network of passionate travelers, it's our hope that we can reignite that innate human desire to explore which is at the heart of every true and meaningful adventure.
So get out there; book a trip, explore the world, share the experience and embrace the adventure in all of it. That's what it means to embark.
Embark.org's logo was crafted by the team at Mitten United, a creative design agency stationed in the pristine mountains of Southern California. Having shared many an adventure together, it was only fitting to collaborate with a group as passionate about exploring the world as we are. Trust us when we say that these guys specialize in making the world a more beautiful place.
