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.

Trek Iceland - Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork   Richard (FOREST HILLS)

We're talking Lord of the Rings country here, with pristine green and white mountains and geothermal springs. This alone is enough to do the trek, which was of a moderate grade. Our guide, Marta, was well

organized, easy-going and genuinely fun. Be prepared for crowded mountain huts where single travelers of the same sex are asked to share berths, bathrooms are outside and everyone helps with cooking and cleaning. Even in Reykjavik, the guest house involved a shared bathroom. I'm a good sport, but I'm subtracting one star for the price-service ratio. That said: do it! I'm a jaded trekker and the scenery is as beautiful and unique as anything else in the world...

altitude. The track was fantastic and the guide and potters were incredibly friendly. The trek may be slightly longer than many you will see advertised but it allows you to fully appreciate Machu Picchu and you don't have any 3.30am starts. KE Adventure were great to deal with from the very first enquiry I made and I would defiantly use them again.
