Overseas Adventure Hikes
The best way to really get to know a place is to explore it for yourself
All of our treks are specifically tailored to our participants. Between our overseas partners and our team at home, we have tested them all. Our challenges vary from moderate to extremely difficult and we try to choose the unique approach to these classic destinations. We are setting our focus on what we believe to be the best three hiking adventures in Africa, South America, and Asia. All of these treks are are accessible and our skilled staff is prepared to help you make the most out of your life changing climb.
Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and summiting its peak is one of the all time greatest achievements. Rising majestically from the Savannah lands of northern Tanzania, Mt. Kilimanjaro stands tall at a peak of 19,340 ft (well above the cloud line). It is the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free standing mountain in the world. The feeling you get as you climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and watch the sun rise over the vast African plains is truly an incredible experience.
Mt. Kilimanjaro’s great size and height strongly influence the climate, vegetation, and climbing conditions. The mountain also controls its own weather by affecting the surrounding rainfall. This means that hiking it requires immense stamina, unwavering persistence, and a waterproof resilience. We have taken over 8,000 people (and counting) on this incredible challenge to take on the tallest free standing mountain in the world.
Everest Base Camp
The Everest Base Camp trek is probably one of the most famous in the world, one that every trekker should consider taking at some point in their lives. It is without a doubt one of the most challenging treks to take on, but the sheer thrill and sense of achievement you experience as you arrive at the base of Mount Everest is unrivaled.
Your journey to Everest Base Camp begins in Kathmandu, Nepal’s vibrant capital, and later hopping on a plane to Lukla, the gateway to the Khumbu region. From here, you will begin your trek into the heart of the Nepali Himalayas and take in some spectacular scenery along the way. The main highlight on your journey to Everest Base Camp will be the majestic snow-capped peaks that line the steep-sided valleys and the jaw-dropping views that await you at almost every turn. Few feelings can compare to looking up in awe at the world's highest peak.
Follow in the footsteps of the Spanish Conquistadors and early 20th Century explorers as you cross the high Peruvian Andes in search of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas. The trek route departs from the bustling colonial mountain town of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, and winds its way through breathtaking mountain passes and on through humid jungle trails to reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu.
The city is set upon a ridge over the Urubamba Valley, deep within the jungle-covered mountains northwest of Cusco. Our trek takes you over the less traveled route of the high pass of Salkantay Mountain, a truly remarkable experience. You will cross a diverse range of terrain along the way - finding nothing but new adventures around every corner. The final reward for trekking Machu Picchu is a first-hand experience of an impeccably preserved ancient city that is on par with the Great Pyramids of Giza in terms of beauty and architectural achievement.
In the heart of Spain lies the Catalan city of Barcelona. Famous for its art, culture, fine cuisine and, now, its marathon! The marathon itself is designed to give you the most scenic tour of all of Barcelona's major, amazing landmarks. You'll be running the 26.2 miles with college students from all over the US and the UK. Whether you're relaxing on the beach while sipping sangria, absorbing the culture at the Sagrada Familia or spring break partying on the waterfront with Barcelonians, the Barcelona marathon is a top event for anyone's bucket list.
