A New Look for KE Adventure

Welcome to our brand new look! We hope you like it.

New Website and Look

Welcome to our new website with a new brand look and feel, including new colours and a new KE logo.

We hope you will find the website quicker and easier to navigate around, allowing you to find more information about KE at a glance, whether on a desktop, tablet or mobile device. You should be able to access more detailed information than previously about our ever-increasing range of adventure holidays, and hopefully you will find the search functionality more effective and easier to use.

As we approach our 40th birthday in 2024, we felt it was right to take the company into the future with a look and feel which better reflects who we are now, and the wide range of products that we offer. We know it’s quite different, but we hope you like it as much as we do!

Take a look at our video to learn more.


What has changed?

We were keen to acknowledge our past, and the kind of adventure trips that we have always offered; i.e. more challenging and pioneering active adventures, whilst also representing the more leisurely walking, cycling and family trips that we have introduced more recently, both on a Guided and Self-Guided basis.

As you will see, we have moved on from the original yellow logo, and introduced a new bright coral orange; the colour of desert sand and sunlit rocks and sunsets (some of our favourite things). We have retained the rich burgundy red which reminds us of our Himalayan heritage (the colour of Buddhist monks’ robes in Nepal & Bhutan), and introduced some more natural secondary colours (blues and greens).

Our aims and purpose as a company have not changed; we are still the same team, based in Keswick in the Lake District, offering the same great choice of adventure holidays, with the excellent levels of service and expertise that you, our customers have come to expect from KE. Now with added colour!


40 Years of Adventure

It all started back in 1984 in the heart of the Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan, when our intrepid founders Tim Greening and Glenn Rowley led the first expedition-style treks to K2 and started a company called the Karakoram Experience (hence ‘KE’).

We were soon offering small group walking and trekking holidays throughout the Himalaya and before long, walking, cycling, multi-active, wildlife and family adventures throughout the world, led by our own expert KE leaders.

In 2018 we introduced Self-Guided walking and cycling holidays, offering a greater degree of flexibility and freedom to those who prefer to travel on a date of their choice and at their own pace. Today we have around 400 Guided and Self-Guided trips in 100 countries, ranging from leisurely walking and cycling, through to tough multi-day treks or rides in some of the world’s most remote and rugged wilderness areas. We have something for everyone, whatever your ability or level of fitness.

Based in Keswick in the Lake District, we live and breathe adventure and love to get out into the surrounding fells at every opportunity. We also love chatting about our adventures with our customers. So if you are passing, do pop into the KE shop; we’ll put the kettle on.
