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.

the fit as not only is it very steep, it has to be climbed at a reasonably quick pace to reach the viewpoint before the clouds roll in. I underestimated it and had to turn round. The Mt Kinabula climb was a strenuous but not a exceptionally hard climb at a steady rate. I found the descent on steep broken ground and interminable steps, which seemed to go on and on, exterely hard on the thighs. Overall a very enjoyable holiday, which I would thoroughly recommend.

beautiful little island peppered with some attractive small towns. Victoria is a highlight and a good choice for the free day. It is easily accessible by bus or on foot. The Citadella is a wonderful piece of medieval architecture. The day trip to Malta works well, although there isn't enough time to do the sights of Mdina and Valetta justice.
