About Inertia Treks 

Inertia is not your average travel company. In fact, we’re not really a travel company at all. Rather, we combine our in-depth experience in scouting, fixing and location management to handcraft incredible treks all around the world. We work in partnership with influencers and sponsors to develop these programs, and invite participants to apply to join us as we explore some remarkable places, cultures, and environments. 

Our founders have coordinated complex programs for dozens of Fortune 700 CEOs from the Young Presidents’ Organization, The Asia Society, and student groups from Harvard and Stanford Universities among others. We have undertaken scouting activities for the film and media industry, traveling from Greenland to North Korea and just about everywhere in-between. 

Each program is lead by organizers from our Canada-based office, along with the host influencer and local fixers on the ground in each location we go. As a very visually-focused company, those wishing to improve their photography and videography skills are in luck, as each of our program leaders is a skilled media maker and can offer workshops on request throughout each trek.

How It Works: For Influencers

We've organized projects from sailing around icebergs in Greenland, to horse trekking across northern Afghanistan, and just about everything and everywhere in-between. Our ability to operate at reasonable budgets throughout all corners of the planet without using large tourism providers gives us a high degree of flexibility when crafting itineraries. 

We work with influencers on designing the best itineraries for them and their followers-- to their bucket list destinations. Trips stick to the ways each travel influencer prefers to explore, thus giving their followers an authentic travel experience with them. 

Inertia provides a platform to register participants on trips, handle questions and paperwork, mitigate liability, collect and manage payments, and provide straightforward affiliate and sponsorship structures for brands looking to collaborate. Depending on the project, we also integrate professional video crews for top-shelf content production, series development and more. Just imagine what you could create with a film crew behind you.

Kamchatka Trek

Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula jets off the Siberian mainland into the Bering Sea in the North Pacific. It is home to unspoiled nature, thick boreal forests, active volcanos, hardy people and very few roads.

This adventure takes participants off-road into the remote wilderness, travelling hundreds of kilometres by snowmobile, to live with ethnic Even reindeer herders. Conditions are austere, but the journey is incredible.

The Kamchatka trek is a true physical, cultural and social expedition across some of Russia's most unspoiled country for able-bodied adventure seekers.

Dates: March 18-31, 2018
Starting in: Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia
Ending in: Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia
Price: $2,900 USD
