Adventure trekking: beats a beach anyday!

More and more people are finding that a week on the beach is simply not interesting enough for a holiday. At the same time, some of the world's greatest destinations are more accessible than ever. Put the two together and you have lots of people looking for a really exciting challenging adventure. And when it comes to trekking adventures, climbing Kilimanjaro, trekking to base camp or hiking to the ruins at Machu Picchu simply do not get any better. We actually did a survey and asked hikers what would be on their "bucket list" for treks and these three came out top by a mile.

Why do people think they are so great? Well first is the fact that although they are massive challenges they are doable by most keen weekend walkers. You don't need technical climbing ability and you don't need to be superfit. What you do need is plenty of stamina and bucket loads of determination.  With that and a little planning you could find yourself standing on the Roof of Africa, looking out across the Khumbu glacier at Mt Everest or walking through the incredible Sun Gate at Machu Picchu. Imagine that.

Second is that you can do all of them in manageable amounts of time: Kilimanjaro takes 7 days, Machu Picchu the same with acclimatisation and Everest base camp just 14 days. So whichever appeals your standard annual holiday entitlement is plenty. 

And third, they appeal across all age groups and interests. So whether it is single travellers, groups of friends, company teams, charity fundraisers or families they can all take on and enjoy these challenges and succeed. 

So whatever your reason for looking for a trekking adventure, we are here to help. Our friendly expert team always love to talk to people about their plans and work with them to creat that dream trip. So don't delay call us today.
