Machu Picchu Trek September 2018

Travelling to Machu Picchu was a lifetime ambition and it was the experience of a lifetime thanks to the professionalism and foresight of Earth’s Edge!

Machu Picchu Trek September 2018

We had the best trip to Machu Picchu via the Salkantay trail with Earth’s Edge, from the moment of booking right through to when we landed home everything was superbly organised. All staff form EE and local crew were very professional, informative, helpful and friendly. We felt safe and well looked after every step of the way. The accommodation from hotels to camping was better than expected and the food was amazing we may have come back fitter but not slimmer!!!! We cannot recommend this trip highly enough it was fantastic.

Everest Base Camp Trek September 2018

From the moment we looked it up, to booking, to the prep weekend, to leaving and coming back. Everything was taken care of and it was an amazing experience!

Everest Base Camp Trek September 2018

Amazing life changing trip to EBC! The organization was fantastic; from months before, to starting in Dublin Airport, to returning 18 days later with so many new friendships. What an adventure and experience and so much fun, laughter and enjoyment with the full group including the Irish & Nepalese Earth’s Edge teams. Total respect for everyone involved and so proud of my new & old friends for the daily support they showed me on this trip.

Machu Picchu Trek August, 2018

I had a fantastic trekking experience, despite having altitude sickness. We saw amazing sights, and each day was different. We passed Salkantay mountain beside a huge glacier. The hot springs were fabulous after a long day trekking. The coffee plantation and lunch cooked using hot stones were amazing and we learned so much about the process of coffee making. We also had a fantastic group, guides and Doctor. I also learned about myself and endurance.

Machu Picchu Trek August, 2018

I had a wonderful experience with Earths Edge. It was a journey in more ways than one. I always got great support when I was struggling (well falling behind a bit). The encouragement was second to none. You only have to think of your trek as everything else, as in, flight tickets, train tickets, etc. are dealt with by Earth’s Edge. I loved it all and have memories that will last a lifetime. Cannot wait until my next trip with Earth’s Edge.

Kilimanjaro Climb August 4th, 2018

I don’t have the words to put on my trip. No photo or video can capture what I felt or saw on my Kilimanjaro climb. The porters and guides from Arusha were second to none. Every morning, we were greeted at 6am with tea, coffee or hot chocolate and a massive smile from our team. They took care of us like family and I’ll never be able to tell them exactly how grateful I am to them for their support. They are the absolute backbone of the trip and are there when you need them most. Our team cried saying goodbye to them because they became family. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

Kilimanjaro Climb August 1st, 2018

My Kilimanjaro expedition with Earths Edge truly was one of the best experiences of my life, from the organisation and booking process, the pre-departure weekend and the expedition itself; they’ve thought of everything and go above and beyond to make sure you are safe and well looked after. All you have to worry about is packing your bag, and getting yourself ‘pole pole’ to the summit, one step at a time. Having an experienced Irish guide and doctor as part of the trip was invaluable and gives you the comfort to focus on your goal. The local team of guides and porters are just superheroes! Their strength and spirit are inspirational, they motivated and kept our spirits high on every step of the journey. It was so important to me that Earths Edge treat their local guides so well and we loved having a Nepalese Sherpa join us on our trip in Tanzania as a reward for excellent service in his workplace at Everest Base Camp. The food on the mountain was excellent and the tents were much more comfortable than I expected!! The mountain itself is spectacular and our guides were so knowledgeable about the changing terrain and ecology of the mountain. Summit day was one of the most challenging days of my life but that sense of motivation, achievement and camaraderie in our group made all the effort worthwhile. The feeling of standing at the roof of Africa is indescribable and one I will cherish for life. Thank you SO much to Mary, James, Walter and the local team and all at Earths Edge for this once in a lifetime experience. It really was a dream come true!

Kilimanjaro Climb July 7th, 2018

Made a trip of a lifetime THE trip of a lifetime. Everything was organised really well, with an experienced team leader and doctor on hand for any issues. Loved every moment of it and would definitely recommend Earth’s Edge to anyone who would think about going away.

Kilimanjaro Climb, 7th July 2018

What an experience! I’m not sure I would have made it without the support of Earth’s Edge. I was worried about food on the mountain but they dished up great tasting food every day – I’ve no idea how! The summit day really pushed me and drained my batteries but the support of the team kept me going. Thank you all for a great experience, I pushed myself harder than I ever did before and proud to say I climbed Kilimanjaro…

Elbrus Expedition July 2018

I have done two expeditions with Earth’s Edge. They have both been wonderful experiences and I have enjoyed the company of the locals and climbers who I have set out with. Not only have we learned more about the mountains I have climbed but I have learned more about the countries that I have visited (.i.e. people, language, cuisine).

Glenstal Abbey School Kilimanjaro Expedition 2018

The expedition was challenging but achievable with all the support from Earth’s Edge (Leadership, Logistics and Safety) which were excellent.

Glenstal Abbey School Kilimanjaro Expedition 2018

The Glenstal Abbey School Kilimanjaro expedition and community project was fantastic. It was challenging and rewarding in equal measure and will live long in the memory of all of the participants. To reach the summit with my own two boys was a family experience to cherish!

Nisus Fitness Machu Picchu Trek July 2018

Earth’s Edge provides you with an itinerary that has been researched and vetted to an extremely high level. The quality and location of hotels is excellent and only the best and most experienced guides will lead the way. The addition of a doctor as part of the group provides reassurance to those travelling. I would highly highly recommend Earth’s Edge. Professional and trustworthy from start to finish.
