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.

Walking in the Reunion Islands
Reunion Island Paradise   Catriona (KINGUSSIE)

Reunion is like nowhere else I've been - but with echoes of so many other places. The trekking is steep, and although the paths are well marked, they varied from flights of irregular steps through boulder

fields to mudslides. However, don't be put off! The variety of terrain, vegetation and the 'jizz' of the place more than make up for the occasional discomfort! We were unlucky that the Piton de la Fournaise chose to repel us, but sunrise on the Piton des Neiges was stunning! The food was absolutely excellent everywhere - including the communal meals in the mountain huts, washed down with a glass of the local 'dodo' or a tot of rum punch! For me, the vegetation was one of the big plus points, ranging from rain forest complete with tree ferns through montane scrub to bare volcanic slopes, but all fascinating. And at the end there's a chance to relax on the shore and remind yourself why half a day on the beach is very nice but quite enough for one holiday! When we were there (October) it was often hot and sunny first thing, but clouding over mid-morning to a pleasant walking temperature and generally brightening again later. And expect rain (though it's quite warm!)

In the Annapurna Sanctuary
Annapurna Sanctuary and Poon Hill Trek   Christopher (BINGLEY)

We've just come back from this trek and it was fantastic. We went to Nepal 16 years ago, and now can't think why we left it so long before returning. The country is poor, still recovering from a devastating

earthquake, coping with fuel shortages as a result of the Indian blockade, but still smiling. We've been on treks in higher, more remote areas but never one with such varied landscapes; villages and terraces, bamboo forests, then the spectacular rock and snow of the Sanctuary itself. We've always been lucky with our trek crew, but never had one quite like this; Dawa, Januk, Raju, Chandra, Tshering, and Mangale were efficient, helpful and just lovely. We've always enjoyed camping and were a bit uncertain about lodges, but they were great; very simple but really clean and with 'comfort toilets'! (Those of us who were ill throughout a 15 day trek on the Baltoro glacier and thought we'd never trek again, are allowed to develop an obsession with toilets.) If you're about to go on this trek - advice. It is very cold high up. Because of the fuel shortage there is no heating in the lodges. We were fine with really warm down jackets and sleeping bags, but if you don't have them, beg, borrow or steal them. (Actually, if it's a matter of stealing you may be better hiring them from KE!) Also, take metal drinks bottles then you can use them as hot water bottles. If you're thinking about going on this trek - advice. Nepal is 'open for business'. Tourism is 60% down this year. They need our money. Go!
