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.

OAT - Oman Adventure Trekking
Oman Adventure Trekking   Thierry (LONDON)

Although there is less walking than anticipated and the walking is easier than advertised, this is an amazing trip in a beautiful country. We also had the chance to swap a day of walking in the mountains

against a day in the desert with sunrise and sunset walks. It would be a shame to go to Oman and not to see the awesome sand dunes. KE should change the itinerary definitively. Overall incredible landscapes, stunning mountains, great culture and above all great people.

Guatemala's Volcanoes
Guatemala's Magnificent Seven   Anthony (MACCLESFIELD)

We were very fortunate to witness an eruption of Fuego from less that half a mile away. We were camping at the usual campsite on the side of Acatenango while Fuego performed spectacularly for 30 hours.. The

remaining volcanos were less exciting, but excellent tough climbs (and descents). The country is lovely - much of it forested and also with extensive small-scale farming which is done with little mechanical assistance on well-tended and often steep ground. The guides (Luis, Mario & Alehandro) were very good and very helpful. All the meals in town were in good quality restaurants and the hotels were fine better than I expected) - one was a bit 'tired' but the showers worked and everything was clean. Mario's camp-site cooking was a marvel and Luis passed on stacks of information about the country's history, politics and culture. The campsites were quite high up and got quite cold in the evenings - and more so in the early morning for the climbs to watch the sun rise on the summits. . The zero degree warning did not exaggerate (our breath settled as ice on the inside of the tents) I would suggest take a full down jacket and good gloves for these few hours. Some of the summits are made less pleasant by extensive litter - our group was well-organised and did not contribute to the problem, but its clear that not everyone is so disciplined. Antigua seems the nicest town in the country - I would suggest a 2-3 hour walking tour early in the trip would add to the overall trip - the places to go for food, drink, souvenirs etc. are not very obvious or easy to find.

Western Sahara desert, Morocco
Edge of the Sahara Trek   Georgina (LONDON)

I did this Trek holiday in January 2016 and had an absolutely fantastic time - it exceeded all my expectations. The organisation was fantastic and everything was thought through and provided for. Amazing fixed

camps; delicious and healthy, fresh food at every meal; authentic Moroccan tea on tap; super helpful support team; the best guide ever! Hassan was a dream and I can't praise him highly enough - he was the highlight of my trip with his enthusiasm, knowledge and genuine care. He helped the group gel, kept us all on track, told jokes, kept us informed of plans each day and was happy to help with anything we needed. I also loved the elements of the organised trip that I wouldn't have got had I gone independently; the trip to a local spices shop with a short talk on different spices and their uses/health benefits; horse and carriage ride around Marrakesh after the final group meal; seeing the largest palm grove in Morocco etc. I would recommend this trip (and any with KE) to anyone, regardless of ability or previous experience and will definitely look to book another adventure with KE in the very near future!

Ladies of the Chin Hills
Golden Hills of Burma   Stuart (San Diego)

This was an excellent trip combining walking, sights and culture. The itinerary gets the balance rights and was just what we were hoping for. Our guide Sai was superb. His energy, enthusiasm and knowledge were

undimmed throughout the trip. The country is coming out of a long period of military rule and is not tarnished by the kind of tourism that has affected more "developed" parts of SE Asia. The people are friendly, open and interested in visitors. However, it was Sai who brought this to life; we would not have had such a rich experience without him.
