With over 200 holidays to choose from, KE Adventure Travel has one of the very best collections of trekking and walking holidays worldwide. Graded on a scale from 1 to 12, we have holidays to suit everyone.  Our easier 'Walking holidays' are likely to be hotel or lodge-based with a day-walk format and an emphasis on uncovering the area's history, culture and cuisine whilst at the other end of the scale our tougher treks are likely to involve multi-day hikes through wilderness regions, with porter support and tented accommodation.

From our earliest days we've developed a range of treks that include celebrated classics such as the Inca Trail in Peru, an ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and the ever popular Everest Base Camp in Nepal.  Alongside these, we have always made it a priority to seek out distinctive and unique itineraries in less familiar areas such as Armenia, Madagascar and Burma.

Whichever of our trekking or walking holidays you choose to undertake, you can be sure you'll enjoy breaking out of your day-to-day routine and exploring exotic landscapes on foot, with the chance to experience different cultures.

All of our treks and walks include the services of a professional leader or local guide, selected on the basis of his or her experience and leadership skills. When trekking in Nepal, you could be accompanied by an experienced Sherpa guide or a seasoned western traveller and mountain leader. In Patagonia, you'll have an English-speaking local guide and in Madagascar, it will be a wildlife specialist.

Group sizes are limited to a maximum of 16 to allow easier interaction with the local people and to leave fewer footprints in a world where it is important that we are environmentally aware. Many clients are solo travellers, whilst others are couples or groups of friends, with a mix of male and female and a range of different ages.

On the Gondogoro La
K2, Concordia and the Gondogoro La   Jonathan (NOTTINGHAM)

This is a stunning trek, highly recommended for lovers of big mountains. I've been to the Indian and Nepalese Himalayas and the scenery in the Karakoram surpassed them all. There was plenty of adventure from

start to finish, kicking off with a drive up the infamous Karakoram Highway complete with armed escorts and landslides! Highlights are many – the views from Concordia are epic and well worth all the effort to get there. The 360 degree panorama taking in K2, Broad Peak and the Gasherbrums is breath taking. The night time ascent of the Gondogoro La with its 40-50 degree slopes at 5500m is certainly not for the faint hearted (or unfit!). Competence with ice axe and crampons on steep snow slopes is essential as being stuck behind someone who is not up to the job is not much fun for other members of the group. The trek was well organised from start to finish. The local guides, camp staff and porters were all incredibly professional and efficient; the food was amazing and the tents modern and spacious. The tour leader, Tom Richardson, was top class and a pleasure to be with in the hills.

JAT - Across the Julian Alps to Triglav
Across the Julian Alps to Triglav   Julian (Wolverhampton)

This was my first KE holiday and first experience of hut to hut trekking. My wife and I both had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this holiday to any seasoned hill walker. Prior to booking, we read

all the info KE provided about the itenerary, kit list etc. and because of this felt extremely well prepared (note: pack toilet paper - not on the kit list but needed for the final hut!!) The Slovenian guides on the trek were also very helpful and knowledgeable and we were lucky enough to be trekking with a great bunch of people. Consequently we had an awesome time! If great mountain days, stunning scenery and summits that provide a sense of achievement are your thing, this holiday is highly recommended!

On the Gondogoro La
K2, Concordia and the Gondogoro La   Chloe (HASLEMERE)

The scenery in the Karakorams is simply awe-inspiring. There was a real sense of good feeling among our team; partly due to the incredible shared experience of being in such a magical place, but also largely

owing to the wonderful treatment we received from our Pakistani hosts and from Tom's (our group leader) sense of humour. Tom's knowledge of the region is tremendous and he had stories of funny misadventures in nearly every mountain we passed. And there were a lot of mountains! KE were brilliant at helping us all rearrange our flights (there was a coup in Turkey the day before most of us were due to fly out to Pakistan on Turkish Airlines). On the journey to Skardu, we had to find accommodation at the last minute in Gilgit (due to a delay as a result of a landslide on the KKH). KE, Tom and Baltistan Tours made sure we all had accommodation and I was very glad at that point that I was not trying to travel independently. The food throughout the trip was really superb. In the most trying conditions (on glaciers, in the middle of the night, after days without fresh supplies), the kitchen boys managed to produce heaps of delicious food. This trip in Pakistan was the best holiday i have been on. The company was great and everything was organised so well. I would highly recommend this trip. The scenery really blew me away and I got so much more out of the trip by going with KE than I believe I could have done by going with another company given that the Karakorams is KE's specialist region. I will be back next year!

JAT - Across the Julian Alps to Triglav
Across the Julian Alps to Triglav   Karina (BRIGHTON)

This was my second mountain trekking trip with KE and it was just as brilliant as the first one in the High Tatras, Carpthian Mountains, Poland. Typically well organised with amazing guides - Katia and Bugy -

who were extremely competent and worked well as a team to ensure the well being and enjoyment of us all. The scenery varies from pine forest to exposed mountain paths to valleys covered in wild flowers - all jaw droppingly lovely with views to die for! We experienced all weather from sun (4 days) to rain (1 day) to snow (half a day), and note to self in future is to pack as lightly as possible and layer up for possibly cold nights high up in the huts. Walking poles are very helpful if, like me, you find descending steep scree covered paths tricky! The mountain hut food was tasty and sustaining. I was lucky enough to be in a group of great people, and we all had a fantastic time!!!
