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.

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

A mixture of day walks and one overnighter. Excellent accommodation and meals. Not overly strenuous but attractive country. Excellent English speaking guide

On the Laugavegur Trek
Trek Iceland - Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork   Richard (FOREST HILLS)

We're talking Lord of the Rings country here, with pristine green and white mountains and geothermal springs. This alone is enough to do the trek, which was of a moderate grade. Our guide, Marta, was well

organized, easy-going and genuinely fun. Be prepared for crowded mountain huts where single travelers of the same sex are asked to share berths, bathrooms are outside and everyone helps with cooking and cleaning. Even in Reykjavik, the guest house involved a shared bathroom. I'm a good sport, but I'm subtracting one star for the price-service ratio. That said: do it! I'm a jaded trekker and the scenery is as beautiful and unique as anything else in the world...
