About our Trek & Walk holidays


  • Trek amongst the world's highest mountains
  • Walk on Inca trails in Peru or Mediterranean coastal pathways

  • Trek in the Himalayas or the Atlas Mountains of Morocco

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.

MCA - Mountains and Marvels of Central Asia
Mountains and Marvels of Central Asia   Katie (NOTTINGHAM)

This trip comprises of two parts, a week trekking in the northern Fann Mountains of Tajikistan and a week sightseeing in the cities of Uzbekistan. I choose this trip over the Ultimate Fann Mountains (UFT)

primarily because I wanted to see more of Uzbekistan, although I would also have liked to do a longer trek in Tajikistan! The scenery on trek in Tajikistan was spectacular. My highlights included the views from the top of the Chapdara and Kulikalon Passes and our campsites at Alaudin and Kulikalon Lakes (Days 3-5). Each night we camped by a river or lake and so there were ample opportunities for washing, even if the water was rather refreshing! I would recommend taking a good supply of cereal bars or similar, as extra food supplies to have on trek. The people of Tajikistan are incredibly hospitable, although the country is very poor and facilities can be basic. In Uzbekistan we visited the cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. Due to the timing of our flights (Tashkent to Urgench on Day 8, and Tashkent to Istanbul on Day 15) we only had very limited time in Tashkent. If you would like to see more of this city then I would recommend booking a day or two extra at the end of the trip. We stayed in the same hotel in Tashkent on Day 7 and Day 14 (for a few hours!) and so we were able to leave much of our trekking gear in Tashkent. My highlights in Uzbekistan included Khiva and Bukhara, and I was glad to have chosen the trip which took in these additional cities as I enjoyed them more than Samarkand (which does have some very impressive sites, but has more of a ‘big city’ feel). Good pre-departure information from KE and quick to respond to queries. Looking forward to booking my next KE adventure!

SPE - Traverse of the Picos de Europa
Traverse of the Picos de Europa   Janet (WIGTON)

This was our first hut to hut organized holiday Grade 7, so the experience was new to us. The friendly greeting and full organization from a very experienced guide from start to finish give us a very enjoyable

holiday of the Picos which would be hard to experience otherwise. The days were full and exhilarating and breathtaking. I would recommend it to anyone who has good physical fitness with stamina to walk full days at a good pace for this grade as it is a challenge. The food that was provided was well thought out and wholesome and very satisfying after a steady hike. I would recommend hiking poles for this terrain as it can be hard on the knees and ankle joints with the heights and descents that are expected. Also thin light layers of clothes which can be added and taken off quickly as the days warm up and also can cool down with heavy mist, the lighter in weight the better as two days of clothes and sufficient water is need to be carried on a daily basis. We were lucky with the weather as it was perfect. I would also recommend earplugs as communal snoring can be expected. The Picos is a must for hikers who enjoy breathtaking scenery and to share it with a fantastic group of hikers makes it a very memorable experience. We will be keeping our eyes open for another holiday with KE Adventure next year.

time of day.Her local knowledge of geology, botany and the general life in the Alps enhanced the experience for all. More than enough food and comfortable beds in a good mix of accommodation, if I were to make a change I would choose to stay high for a couple of extra nights, if possible, rather than descend to the valley and then climb back up again next morning.
