IN THE BEGINNING...
A Passionate Traveller

With the bonus of our Porter Service, meaning after your full days hike you will arrive at camp to your tent set up and a ready to go hot drinks station waiting for you - we also cook you a hot meal and have a masseuse on the team to rub out the days aches and have you fit for the next leg.
So what is included...
- 3 fully guided mountain days
- 2 nights camping with facilities
- 1 team of 6 to 10 adventurers
- All food inclusive for the whole event
