Trekking Itinerary Travel Guide

What to expect on a Trekking Expedition with Adventure Life
Many of our itineraries offer hiking as an optional activity, but on these trekking expeditions, it is at the heart of the experience. 

BEWARE: While none of our trekking itineraries are exclusively for veteran climbers or hikers, you must be in good physical condition for the pace of the trip. Many of these itineraries cover well over five miles (8km) of ground daily often over rugged terrain. 

If you're up for the challenge and you want to be truly one with nature on your adventure, then these experiences may be just what you need:
  • A hiking-focused itinerary: Every day will feature hiking as the main activity. You may have opportunities to explore cities, towns, and archaeological sites that you come across or do any number of side activities, but hiking really is the focus of these trips.
  • Camping opportunities: Our treks offer a mix of loges and camps along the way, but we promise that even the camps along the trail are very comfortable. 
  • Excellent guides: A guide is the core of a trek, and a good guide can make all the difference. That's why we make sure that the guides our tour operators feature are expert hikers, prepared to help with anything that might happen along the way, and also among the most knowledgeable so that you learn about the magical destinations that you're hiking!
  • Classic treks: From Machu Picchu in the Inca's Sacred Valley to Africa's untamed Mt. Kilimanjaro to the Great Wall, we have trekking expeditions in all corners of the world to let you experience the renowned natural and human wonders of the world.
  • Lesser known trails: We've also worked with our operators to offer expeditions that visit the lesser known routes of popular destinations.
