Our 16-day journey in the Peruvian Andes takes in Machu Picchu and it’s lesser-known sister city Choquequirao, giving you the ultimate Inca experience. Choquequirao is twice the size of Machu Picchu and because of its remoteness receives a small fraction of the trekkers that visit Machu Picchu making this trek extra special.

This historic trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364m) is one of the most famous expeditions in the world.

The Kenya Tri AdventureTM expedition includes five days of trekking to Mt Kenya (4985m), two days of biking and one day of exhilarating rafting on the Tana River. We also include two wildlife safaris and one night of camping inside a game reserve!
The Ladakh Tri-Adventure expedition is ideal for those who enjoy a challenge and have a good level of fitness. Located in Ladakh on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau this entire trip is at high altitude and acclimatisation adds an extra element. The expedition gives a great insight into local culture with visits to monasteries, palaces, villages and markets all included.

The Annapurna Base Camp trek is ideal for those who have a moderate level of fitness and want to experience trekking in Nepal and the Himalayas. Our 16-day itinerary includes 10 days of trekking along a stunning route. The highlight of the trek for most people is the night we spend in Annapurna Base Camp (4,130m). Getting to enjoy the beautiful sunrise in a stunning amphitheatre of giant peaks.

This 24-day journey, which includes 14 days of trekking, is suitable for experienced and adaptable trekkers with a strong sense of adventure. Rather than take the normal out-and-back route, after reaching K2 Base Camp we cross the Gondogoro La pass (5,585m) and finish our trek in the Hushe Valley, maximising our experience of the Karakoram.
When: Tuesday, February 18th, 2020 at 7.30 pm
Standing at an impressive 5642m (18,481’), Elbrus is Europe’s highest mountain and one of the ‘Seven Summits’. Our 14-day itinerary allows plenty of time for acclimatisation and flexibility in the event of bad weather. Climbing the mountain from the Northside is much more beautiful and less crowded than the classic Southside.
Aconcagua is the highest mountain in both the Western and Southern hemispheres and another of the ‘Seven Summits’. Our 21-day itinerary allows for proper acclimatisation and has the flexibility to accommodate bad weather, maximising your chances of reaching the summit. Our approach through the Vacas valley and descent along the ‘normal route’ offers the best of both routes and the best possible experience of Aconcagua.
When: Tuesday, February 25th, 2020 at 7.30 pm
Our Island Peak (6,189m) expeditions include the classic Everest Base Camp trek – one of the most iconic routes in the world. After trekking to Everest Base Camp we are well acclimatised and ‘trek fit’ to take on the challenge of Island Peak. Although it is often classified as a trekking peak, standing at 6,189m Island Peak is a tough challenge.
At an impressive 6,476m, Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. We like to take the less travelled route to Mera Peak Base Camp. After an exciting flight to Lukla, we head south to the remote region of the Hinku Valley passing through Pangkongma and Nashing Dingma villages. This takes us around, rather than over the Zatrwa La Pass (4,630m) which has a big impact on acclimatisation.
The 16-day Kang Yatse II expedition is suitable for experienced trekkers who have a good level of fitness. Towering at an impressive 6,250 metres is a serious challenge. Our route to the mountain is along the stunning Markha valley where we pass through traditional villages and enjoy stunning mountain views. This is one of the best trekking peaks in the Indian Himalayas.
