My recent trek to Kilimanjaro with the September 2nd group was a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived at Dublin Airport to returning to same was magical. Jono was a true leader and put us all at ease from the start. Mind you, he could do with getting better “jokes”.He explained everything to us and you could ask him anything day or night. Your company should be proud to have him as a leader. Jeff was always there if we needed him checking to make sure we were all ok, a real professional! The porters and guides were unbelievable, the work they do is phenomenal,an Irishman would not do the work they do. How they carry those big loads up a mountain is unreal. Everything from our tents and bags, their own tents, food, water, toilets, tables, chairs, plates, knives, forks, cooking pots you name it they carry it.Everyday higher and higher and they sing all the way to the top. I wouldn’t have believed the work they do if someone had told me beforehand, but when you see it with your own eyes it is truly inspiring. I had a fabulous time on Kilimanjaro,it was the people that I met who made it for me. Everyone from our group got on really well, not bad for a bunch of “strangers”.What made the trip special for me was not just getting to the top, but the guides and porters always singing and smiling a great bunch of people. People say the Irish are very welcoming but the Tanzanian people are the nicest most friendly people I have ever met, hopefully someday I will get the chance to return. Earth’s Edge is a company that I will travel with again and again as long as I can stay fit. “FUSO IS A LEGEND”.Thank you to you Barbra and Joyce for all your help.

Very professional from start to finish.

My experience with Earth’s Edge is nothing short of amazing, from start to finish every day was met with a positive attitude and the right mindset with the right people. Professional at all times from the guides to the group leader. I will 100% be traveling with Earth’s Edge again in the very near future.
David Kane, Co. Cork
Just back from the Stok Kangri trip with Earth’s Edge. A stunning, undeveloped part of the world. Beautiful scenery with some really challenging treks. I’d highly recommend traveling with EE. The trip was well organised, with every aspect taken care of. I can’t wait to travel with EE again!
Marian Timmons, Co. Meath
Just back from an AMAZING trip to Ladakh on a Tri-Adventure. Couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone looking to take on and challenge themselves in a unique and magical environment. We had superb support and knowledge from Terrance the expedition leader and Hannah the expedition doctor! Not forgetting the local guides who went above and beyond on a daily basis to make our experience memorable. Earth’s Edge left no stone unturned in organising this amazing adventure from an early start in Dublin airport to a midnight flight home from Delhi. Everything in between was a lifetime of memories Hopefully see you all again in 2020 for another adventure!
Keith Doyle, Co. Dublin
My idea of a holiday is when someone else plans everything from start to finish so that I can switch my brain off completely and not have to organise a thing. My experience of both the Ladakh and Kenya Tri Adventures is that Earth’s Edge does this so seamlessly well in the most unique, off-the-beaten-track places that I’d never find if I was travelling on my own! I’ve done a few trips with different tour operators and I consider Earth’s Edge to be excellent value for money as so much is included in the price and there’s very little need to spend much money during the trip, bar for a few fridge magnets and Toblerone’s on the way home!

Having been to both Kilimanjaro and Elbrus with Earth’s Edge I can firmly say that they provide an incredibly safe, immensely positive and deeply supportive platform from which a normal guy like me can tackle the great challenges this world has to offer.
Robbie O’Raw, Co. Dublin
Earth’s Edge was recommended to me by an experienced climber when I first mentioned climbing Kilimanjaro. I am so glad I took his advice. From the very first email, I knew I was in the hands of professionals. Mary the team leader was brilliant, funny and so experienced. Nothing was an issue for her. Keith the team doctor, a cool man who kept an eye on us constantly and was always there when needed. Absolutely brilliant experience and my next adventure will definitely be with Earths Edge. Thank You!
Adrian Mitchell, Co. Cork
Earth’s Edge staff are so helpful and efficient at responding to emails and general enquiries. The level of detail in the itinerary is a testament to the level of organisation. Our guide Mary was exceptionally brilliant. Her knowledge of Kilimanjaro was invaluable and enhanced our appreciation of the mountain. She became a friend to all. She went above and beyond her job as a guide. Would highly recommend Earth’s Edge for any trekking holiday it far exceeded my own expectations.
Lisa Hutcheson, Co. Meath
Earth’s Edge are an extremely well organised and professional organisation. My adventures to Mt.Kilimanjaro was a trip of a lifetime and I’m so glad I booked it with it Earth’s Edge as they did not disappoint. The information, pre-department weekend, continuous support of on the trip were second to none. The quality in food, accommodation and local guides were excellent, and having an Irish doctor travel along with us was very reassuring to all of us. Overall it was a great experience!

If you are looking to travel to perhaps the most remote part of the world, meet truly inspirational people, be challenged physically like never before and be absolutely blown away by the most awesome scenery and mountains you will ever witness, the K2 basecamp Trek and the Gondogoro La pass in Pakistan with Earth’s Edge is for you!
Niall Sheil, Co. Wexford, Ireland
K2 Basecamp and the Gondogoro La Pass, has been one of my favourite trips. Beautiful scenery, amazing food and very knowledgeable local guides. The pass provided a nice challenge where I was able to use crampons and ropes for the first time. Descending the back of the pass was a highlight. The real highlight was meeting mountaineers ready to summit K2 and Broad peak, we were able to have a group dinner with them and really get some insight into high altitude climbing. Mike Horn was at K2 base camp and being able to meet him and hear his stories about trekking and adventures across the world was so inspiring. I can honestly say that meeting these people really made the trip for me.
Megan White, Co. Donegal, Ireland
This was our first group trip and we had an amazing experience. An unexpected stay in Addis Ababa wasn’t that bad as it allowed us to get to know the group a little before the hike. We were with a fantastic bunch of people all with the same goal (to reach the top) We laughed a lot throughout the hike. Cannot praise the guides and porters enough! Their morning singing and their words of encouragement kept the spirits high. Wouldn’t have made the top without their support on summit night. Will definitely book another trip with Earths Edge!
Kathleen Casey, Co. Kildare, Ireland.
I had the most amazing experience with the Earth’s Edge team from the moment I booked Kilimanjaro to the final farewell dinner. So much care and attention was taken in all aspects. The preparation for the trip with equipment lists, training advice, the itinerary, communication and the customer care given on the mountain was second to none. I personally loved the mixture of people on the mountain; our group were from all walks of life and corners of Ireland, Brazil and the UK. We were all excited to learn about Tanzanian culture and lives of our guides and porters who were more than happy to share their stories through chats as we hiked and sang songs in the mornings. I would recommend Earth’s Edge to anyone who is looking for a company who truly cares about the experience of its clients and employees.
Grace McDonogh, Co. Meath, Ireland.
My Elbrus expedition in July 2019 was in a word “AMAZING”. We had a wonderful group, great local and Irish guides and an excellent Dr (who fortunately we didn’t need at all). Whilst the weather didn’t help us too much on our proposed summit night thanks to some quick thinking we were able to adjust our itinerary, extend our time on the mountain and summit on night 4. We all made it to the top of Europe!
