Our Heritage

In 1969, three intrepid mountaineer-explorers, Leo Le Bon, Allen Steck, and Barry Bishop, came up with a then-radical idea: to create a company called Mountain Travel out of their incurable wanderlust for global adventure travel and their passion for sharing backcountry wilderness experiences with others. Around the same time Richard Bangs and John Yost were whitewater rafting first descents of rivers across the adventure travel globe, and created Sobek Expeditions in 1973. Together they ushered in a new way for adventure travelers to see the world actively and earned us our moniker of the Adventure Company™.
