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.

TDC - Tour des Combins
Tour des Combins   Victoria (BUCKINGHAM)

Very well organised by KE as ever. The huts were wonderful and the trails quiet. This is a beautiful trek. We barely saw anyone else the whole way round. Food in the evenings was always plentiful and the picnic

lunches surprisingly large. Plenty of time in the late afternoons to relax. Elaine was a fantastic guide and very responsive to the needs of the group. 4 days of great Alpine weather, 2 days of intermittent rain. Do take a world wide charger as you can charge phones/batteries in the huts the whole way round(3 pin Swiss adaptor needed). The outdoor shower at the Panossière has a view of the glacier to die for.

better than anticipated. For some reason, the Yeti did not have us arriving on Sunday evening but instead did not expect us until Monday morning. This was inconsistent with our confirmed plans and would not make any sense since we would have missed the start of the trip. However, they were able to accomodate us without problem. We did have one issue on the trail when we had to abort the day due to severe thunder and lightIng storms. It appears the office did not want to pay for transportation from the reffuge and we had to walk several hours to,a main road to catch a taxi. I think KE can do better then this in contingency plans. None the less, overall it was a great trip and definitely will consider KE for future trips.

running water and indoor toilets. a few huts were very basic with large bunk rooms for over 30 people, pit toilet and no running water. Guides, David and Katja, looked after the group very well and always clearly explained what to expect each day. Great group of fellow trekkers. The ascent of Mt Triglav was a lot of fun with incredible expansive views at the top. I do not like heights, but loved the via ferrata climb on mt Triglav and always felt very safe and secure with the cables and harness.

Dolomites Via Ferrata   Thomas (East Hendred)

This was an exciting and "full-on" Via Ferrata experience with magnificent scenery and enjoyable but challenging (for me) Via Ferrata. The food in the huts was unexpectedly excellent. A particular positive of
