    Mt Everest, Nepal

    Ever heard the saying ‘this is my Everest’? Climbing the world’s highest mountain has become synonymous with difficult tasks, so this is truly one for experienced climbers. If you intend on making the full trek to the top it will take years to get fully prepared, but for a less difficult yet still challenging climb, you could try Everest’s Base Camp.

    Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

    With examples of virtually every ecosystem on earth (including glaciers, deserts, savannah and tropical jungle), trekking Mt Kilimanjaro is an unforgettable experience. The best time to go is from January to March1 and the trek can only be made with an organised tour.

    The Andes, Columbia

    After years of civil unrest, Colombia has begun to grow in popularity among world travellers. For many this popularity is due to the country’s picturesque beauty, but for trekkers, Colombia appeals because of its dazzling mountain ranges, monumental peaks and challenging climbs.

    Mt Whitney, California

    The tallest mountain in California, Mt Whitney is a relatively easy climb for amateur trekkers and can be completed in 5 hours on a fast hike2. Obtain a permit and walk the John Muir Trail which will take you from the northern end of Yosemite Valley up to the summit of Mt Whitney, passing through deep valleys, meadows and an abundance of wildlife.

    Mt McKinley, Alaska

    A haven for outdoor enthusiasts, Alaska has much to offer for hikers and trekkers. Mt McKinley is the highest peak in North America and there are several opportunities for off-trail trekking. Make sure you take the time to stop and admire the magnificent wildlife, including brown bears and moose.

    Mont Blanc, the Alps

    For spectacular alpine trekking, Mont Blanc boasts one of the world’s most celebrated hiking circuits. Although not a technically difficult climb, trails can take up to 9 hours, are mostly uphill and are often on rough, steep trails and glaciers3. If you’re up to the challenge, you’ll be rewarded with some spectacular views.

    The Routeburn Track, New Zealand

    From magnificent peaks, to glistening lakes and beautiful waterfalls, the Routeburn Track is one of the most popular and accessible trials in the forests and mountains of New Zealand. A guided walk will take 3 days and 2 nights and is of moderate difficulty4, so you’ll require a reasonable level of fitness.
