The smartest decision I’ve made to date was to complete the Kilimanjaro expedition with Earth’s Edge. The companies ethos is something which I can honestly say is actually reflected in their practice. The expedition leader, doctor and local guides all made the experience an incredible journey. I would recommend the Kili trip and Earth’s Edge to anyone.

This was my second trip with Earth’s Edge and things only got better. Kilimanjaro was an incredible experience from start to finish, time away from the everyday hustle and bustle to reset while being part of a great group of people taking on Kili together! The support from Josie and Tippa was fantastic and of course, none of it would have been possible without the local guides and porters- such generous, supportive and fun guys who were with us every step of the way, I’ll never forget them. I’d highly recommend Earth’s Edge and this once in a lifetime experience!

Earth’s Edge is an excellent company with which to travel. They provide local expertise and pre-departure support to allow you to travel in confidence and take on significant challenges.

The Aconcagua expedition is fantastic! Earth’s Edge are professional from the onset and throughout. Definitely will be back!
Tom Cleary. Co. Dublin, Ireland.
I have just completed my third expedition with Earth’s Edge – Kilimanjaro (Oct 2015), Mt Elbrus (Aug 2017) and now Aconcagua (Jan 2019). Another great expedition with a great gang of people, ably led by John (expedition leader) and assisted by our doc, Barry. The whole trip went as smoothly as can be expected when considering international travel, weather and local conditions. The local support team in Argentina was fantastic. Thanks, Earths Edge.

I am not an experienced walker or climber – but with guidance from Earth’s Edge, I prepared well for the expedition. However, what I found out was that I wasn’t just going on an expedition to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. I was going to have an experience that I believe will change my life going forwards. A huge thanks to Earth’s Edge for giving me this opportunity.

I signed up to do Kilimanjaro based on the reviews I read online and boy – I was not disappointed! Genuinely could not recommend Earth’s Edge highly enough, from months before the trip even happened, until we got home; they created an experience that I don’t think could be equalled. Any more “Once in a Lifetime” trips for me – will definitely be through Earth’s Edge!

A reluctant out of shape 47 year old took on the challenge of a lifetime. Motivation came from supporting the IRFU Charitable Trust but confidence grew through my dealings with Earth’s Edge. From the initial telephone enquiry with Joyce to the itinerary, kit list and expedition detail; I began to gain a detailed understanding of what I had signed up to. The pre-departure weekend was full of helpful detail, fun and again was a huge confidence builder for me. James and Brian are true professionals who tell it as it is. I arrived at the airport ready for the challenge and thankfully completed it along with the other 32 people in our team! A word must go to the Earth’s Edge crew in Arusha. That team were truly inspirational; the support, effort, work and fitness of each and everyone was remarkable. To Goodie – the very best of luck in Nepal and to FUSO – you are the man. I look forward to hearing about your guiding journey. POLE POLE

I had a fantastic trip! Every one at Earth’s Edge was very helpful and supportive. They were able to accommodate my every (and there were many!) need. A superb company, I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
Gene Cashman. Cork, Ireland
I have and do highly recommend Earth’s Edge. Trips are fantastic, destinations are incredible and best of all they make it so easy for us to travel with. After climbing Kilimanjaro 3 years ago, our goal was to go back to Africa. The tri-adventure was full of adventure, activity and fun. So sad to be back home now. Gotta start planning our next trip!
Marie Murphy. Co. Cork, Ireland.
The trip with Earth’s Edge was well organised with the travellers not having to organise much themselves. The ability to turn up at the airport and having everything in place makes life a lot easier.
Adrian Barber. Co. Dublin, Ireland.
The Kenya Tri-Adventure is the challenge of a lifetime. An epic hike, summit day is not for the faint hearted. The bike trip is topped off by camping in the middle of the Kenyan Plains, surrounded by wildlife, topped off by white water rafting…just fabulous!
Marian Timmons. Co. Meath, Ireland.
I have travelled on three expeditions with Earth’s Edge and cannot fault their extensive organisation and planning for each trip. Their attention to environmental responsibility is to be admired. The Irish guides and doctors do a fantastic job and the local guides are superb. Friendly and helpful advice always available. I would highly recommend Earth’s Edge!
Margaret McCarthy. Co. Dublin
I travelled to India to trek the Himalayas with Earth’s Edge – from the time of booking to the end of the trek I felt very well looked after. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I have no hesitation in recommending them. I hope to travel with them again on another adventure!
Catherine Redmond. Co. Wexford
Having done two expeditions with Earth’s Edge – two very different types of expeditions – both have been the best trips of my life so far.
I first did Kilimanjaro, and recently did Machu Picchu. For both expeditions, the office staff, the Guides, the Doctor, and the local guides have all been absolutely brilliant. The office staff are all very responsive and helpful with any kind of questions and give you all the information you need, plus more.
The Leaders are all extremely supportive, motivational and experienced in what they do, so you feel 100% confident under their watch which means you’re able to (somewhat) relax and enjoy the trip for what it is. They’re also GREAT craic! I’ve had the same doctor on both trips, which thankfully we’ve not had any use for, but again, it’s great to know you’ve got that there if you do have any issues at all. And again, another great addition to the team.
And lastly, the local guide teams on these trips have completely blown my mind. The level of support, the food they are able to cook and the sheer amount of work they put in for the entire team is just out of this world. They are unbelievably hard workers, and they genuinely have a passion for showing us their country and sharing lots of info on their culture, their people and mostly, their language! Absolute Heroes.
It’s just an awesome setup altogether. You go abroad with a group of like minded people, all with a similar goal in mind and you come away with some seriously amazing memories – and new friends. Can’t wait for the next trip already!
