This famous trek along the Inca Trail to reach Machu Picchu offers an unrivalled combination of stunning scenery and amazing culture. We begin the trek by following the Urubamba River and then climb over several high passes including Wamiwanusca “Dead Woman’s Pass” which offers breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains. On our last day of trekking we rise early to get to Intipunku “The Sun Gate” in time to see the first light hit the magnificent city of Machu Picchu, a truly special experience.

Take on the adventure of a lifetime and join our team of trekkers climbing Kilimanjaro this year. Mount Kilimanjaro “The Roof of Africa” stands at a mighty 5895m. Our challenge takes us along the beautiful Machame Route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the south through dense tropical rainforest and all the way up to the mighty snow-capped summit.

This is a tough but rewarding route and on reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement.
