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.

TUR - Best of the Lycian Way
Best of the Lycian Way - Turkey's Coastal Trek   Janet (SUTTON)

We were very lucky to have beautiful hot weather (12-19th Sept), a small group & a wonderful lady guide, Ismet. Best day was Day 5. We were on our own boat (4 of us & the couple & their little boy

that looked after us). The boys navigated & the lady cooked us a delicious lunch. Simena & its castle were very picturesque. Not much to see underwater at Kerkova from the boat, but a lovely swim in a nearby bay. Day 2 was also great starting with a tasty lunch (gozleme pancakes) near deserted Kayakoy village & our first walk uphill for lovely views over the village & beyond....& then on to ever closer views of OluDeniz from above - unforgettable. Day 4 Butterfly Valley was also a striking view, pleasant walking to a pretty rocky beach for a swim & another tasty lunch in a small restaurant overlooking the beach. . Day 7 , I loved the view of Mt Olympos & Cirali from the top of this national park area, sandy Cirali beach,the Chimera flames & Olympos ruins. Every day we had a chance to swim, usually at the end of the day, which was very welcome in consistent 30+ degrees heat. One or 2 of the days did contain alot of walking, with not so many views, but all in all it was fabulous. We also stopped at Myra on the way back to Antalya. (We had also stopped at some tombs In Fethiye on Day 2 on the way to the start of the walk). What a packed week! The hotels were consistently good, 3 star quality. Decent enough breakfasts & dinners. Only the one in Fethiye ( was actually in Calis Beach) seemed inappropriate - too far out of town. We were lucky that the holiday ran with such low numbers, but it made the trip even more special as the pace & content were much more personal. Ismet our guide & Ali our driver were both very kind, thoughtful & accomodating & we cannot praise them enough.

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!
