The origins of high mountain trekking are rooted in the origin of man's exploration of extreme environments. It is a challenge that we still enjoy and the high mountain environments of glaciers and peaks over 3000m remain pure mountain adventure. Away from the crowds and traffic, trekking provides the opportunity to get a unique high mountain experience, get closer to the species that inhabit these special environments and find the time to appreciate a simpler style and pace of life.

Whether you are planning your first big trip or are a seasoned traveller we can provide the security of knowing your safety, well being and trip enjoyment is our highest priority! High level trekking in the Alps and Great Ranges can bring it's own dangers and if you are not aware of what they might be or are stepping up from lower level hiking or trekking then one of our trips could be just what you're looking for.

Only fully qualified IFMGA/UIAGM registered mountain guides can take you onto glaciated terrain. Other qualifications are not relevant to this particular type of terrain. On our trips you will learn how to travel safely in this environment as well as enjoying the scenery and the trekking.

Altitude sickness is also a concern on high altitude treks and a mountain guide will always have your health as a major concern. Our treks are specifically planned to give you the best opportunity to acclimatise and achieve a peak and our Kilimanjaro trek, for example, includes an extra day over those offered by other operators as this is closely linked to a trek's chance of success.

If you can't find what you are looking for in our scheduled trekking trips then we are always very happy to arrange bespoke holidays for you. That way you can tailor your holiday to fit around your own time restrictions, goals or group size.
