Our Short History

1999: Company Founder and CEO Brian Morgan set out to share his passion for travel by offering three guided trips to Peru and Ecuador with a paper pamphlet. Galapagos Islands trips are later added.

2001: Bolivia, Costa Rica, and Belize scheduled group tours are added to the list of options and a website is created. The company receives its first New York Times mention.

2006: By this time, the company had expanded to offer Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Panama, and Antarctica. Worldwide Expedition Cruises are launched as a second website alvoyages.com, which is later merged with the main website.

2009: Founder Brian Morgan is featured on the cover of Inc. Magazine and the company earns its first of many awards for "Best Places to Work" by Outside Magazine.

2010: The company takes a major shift away from guided group tours and toward tailor-made customizable tours with its rebranding to 'Inspired. Authentic. You. Travel Made Your Way.' Over the next few years, more destinations would be added including Asia, Africa, Europe, Mexico, Nicaragua, the Arctic, and other regions.

2011: Adventure Life's Trip Planners receive their first inclusion on the Travel + Leisure A-List.

2016: A complete website redesign is launched and a new robust search tool is created that allows travelers to filter and sort trip options to find their perfect match.

2018: Adventure Life launches its own proprietary quoting and travel services management platform which can combine various packages, rates, and currencies from travel options around the world into one seamless trip itinerary builder for the traveler.

2020: Covid causes the company to shrink down to core staff only. The company devotes all its energies to finding adequate solutions for affected booked travelers in light of the travel pause. Adventure Life shifts to become a fully remote company, hiring qualified Trip Planners from all over the world.

2021: Monika Sundem takes over as CEO for Brian Morgan.

2023: Adventure Life records its best year to date, sending 7,484 travelers on adventures around the globe.

Traveler Reviews

We did not have to worry about anything. All details were taking care of and it made for a very relaxing, educational, stress-free vacation. We had one snafu with a hotel reservation but our guide took care of it and it worked out just fine. In fact it was taken care of before we even knew it was a problem.
