Our Bio Page


Thank you for your interest in Around the World Adventures. We appreciate your enthusiasm for adventure travel.

European born, a life long outdoor enthusiast, adventure traveler, and a Sierra Club Outings Leader......I am Rudy Scheffer.

More than 20 years ago I joined a commercial trip, and after following their itinerary, decided to customize my own trips and invite others to join me. By doing so, the group benefited from reduced prices and enjoyed customized trips suited to the participants. We all wanted to savor the great outdoors, interact with the local people and travel as cheaply as possible. Ever since that day, our goal is exactly that!      

Around the World Adventures, Inc.  combines my special interests in camping  outdoors, my love of the mountains, wildlife and wilderness, and my extensive adventure travel experience. Around the World Adventures trips are designed to be small, premium-quality adventures with very personal care the priority.

What sets us apart from other adventure travel companies is our personal attention to our clients. Because we are family, we treat our clients as family too, paying attention to their needs from the moment they sign up to the time they return. We don't have expensive color brochures because we want to keep the cost of our trips within your budget.

Because of our unique position, we have attracted many reputable, insured and bonded outfitters around the world to handle our local operations. Many trips are actually led by me.

With this brief introduction to Around the World Adventures, Inc., I hope that you will not hesitate to contact us when planning your next adventure vacation. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
