True Challenges


We have chosen to offer a section entitled ‘true challenges’ to separate those treks that we believe requires or demands that little bit more effort or commitment to achieve it, indeed you may not achieve it such is the challenge.

Amongst the definitions of a challenge is ‘a task or situation that tests someone’s abilities’. It is perhaps a contest of you against the elements.

The level of that challenge will be different to each person reading this; it doesn’t matter, it’s your challenge. Whether it climbing above the 6000m barrier or getting to top of Kilimanjaro just like your father did years ago, it’s your challenge. We hope our selection is sufficient to whet your appetite and be able to achieve it.
