Trekking Information

The term trekking is traditionally applied to overland journeys made on foot, usually involving the support of a trek crew. This is the very form of travel used by pioneer explorers and mountaineers in the world’s greater ranges, from the Andes to the Himalayas. Over time, this notion of trekking has evolved and now encompasses everything from extended trips into true wilderness areas, to shorter holidays, staying in guesthouses and hotels and involving a series of day-hikes. Whichever form of trekking you undertake you can be sure you’ll enjoy breaking out of your day-to-day routine to walk through exotic landscapes and experience different cultures.
