We have compiled a list of our most popular treks and mountains to help provide you with the best information and help you select the adventure that is right for you.
Santa Cruz Trek in Peru:
This trek continues to be the most popular trek we offer, due to its amazing beauty, cost, ease of travel and overall experience. The use of porters and donkeys allow the trekker not to have to carry heavy loads, a cook provides amazing food and the scenary is second to none.
Laugavegurinn Trek in Iceland:
The “Hot Spring” trek, complete with its unspoiled and amazing views, continues to please. Travel to Iceland is a mere 5 hour flight from the east coast of the United States and a modern city like Rekyjavik provides both a great base and culture. There are no porters or pack animals allowed in this area, so you will have to carry your own gear, but that is a small price to pay for this adventure.
Paine Circuit, Torres del Paine, Chile:
Year after year, most adventure magazines contuinually list Patagonia and specifically the Paine Circuit at Torres del Paine, one of the best treks in the world. While it is a longer flight to get to the southern tip of South America, the wild rugged beauty, is like no other place on the planet and should definately be oon your “Bucket List”.
Everest Base Camp in Nepal:
The trek to Everest Base Camp is one of the world’s great treks and provides a view of the world’s tallest mountain up close. This region is also famous for the base camp experience with mountaineers from all over the world, not to mention for its Sherpa villages and monasteries with their virtually unchanged unique culture.
Kilimanjaro in Africa:
Kilimanjaro, the tallest point in Africa, 5,895 meters, (19,341 feet) and one of the “Seven Summits”, provides an almost mystical experience and the opportunity to do something special. Since Kilimanjaro does not require any technical climbing or mountaineering experience, any person that is in relatively good physical condition, has some determination and a bit of luck, can summit Kilimanjaro. This makes Kilimanjaro very popular and a great place to start your mountain adventure.
Mt. Pisco in Peru:
For those wanting to begin their mountain adventure with glaciers, snow and very little technical climbing, Mt. Pisco is the mountain for you. At 5,750 meters, 18,897 feet, Pisco offers glacier travel around crevasses, a small amount of ice climbing and all the views you can imagine. Pisco is very popular as a training mountain for those wanting to gain experience, before moving on to Chopicalqui, or mountains in the Himalaya range.
Island Peak in Nepal:
Island Peak, 6,160 meters, (20,196 feet), is one of the most popular peaks to climb in Nepal, as is a technically easy to climb and it offers superb views of the Khumbu area from its summit. It cannot get any better then to see the entire Everest massive in front of you with the rugged summits of Nuptse (7,879m) Lhotse (8,501m), Lhotse Middle Peak (8,410m), as yet still unclimbed and Lhotse Shar (8,383m).
Chopicalqui in Peru:
A step up from Mt. Pisco, at 6,354 meters (20,846 feet), Chopicalqui offers a bit more altitude, techincal climbing and even more views. The climb up an area of the mountain known as “The Mushroom” toward the summit, may be one of the best climbs in South America. Many use Chopicalqui as a prelude to the big mountains in the Himalaya range.
