What do I need to know?
We are delighted to once again be working alongside Global Adventure Challenges who have over twenty years experience in organising such trips, they have helped thousands of people reach their goals and life-long ambitions. Every Expedition Leader is highly experienced and well trained to provide everyone with the most enjoyable trip possible.
Global Adventure Challenges know there are a lot of things to consider before you get back out into the world so they’ve put together a new Travel with Confidence policy, outlining the steps they and their suppliers are taking to make sure that you are safe.

How fit do you need to be? This trek is graded as ‘Challenging’ which means that it is designed to push your boundaries but it should be achievable by anyone as long as you train beforehand.

Why should you do it?
We’re all looking for adventure at the moment and this is certainly one way to get back out there when it’s safe to do so. But also, every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. With over 50% of us living with cancer for 10 years or more, the challenge now is living well with an uncertain future, particularly during these uncertain times. Did you know that
- 1 in 3 people with cancer have depression or anxiety
- 9 out of 10 people with cancer have emotional, social, or physical unmet needs at diagnosis
You can make a lasting difference to these people. While the NHS does incredible work in treating cancer, our expertise is vital in helping people understand what it is to live as well and as long as possible. In taking on this trekking challenge you’ll be fundraising to allow us to support cancer patients to regain control of their lives, to remember that they are more than their cancer diagnosis.
ABSOLUTELY! This trek is suitable for all ages and abilities with the correct training. The minimum age for this trek is 18 years old (14-17 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian). The one thing everyone will have in common is a great sense of adventure and a desire to help a charity. Whether you are taking part as an individual or as a team with friends, team spirit will be flying high on the challenge.
This trek has been graded as 'Challenge' (1) on Global Adventure Challenge's grade scale, and is designed to push your boundaries but be achievable as long as you train correctly beforehand.
