£200 Competition winner – Adventure Travel Show London


The Adventure Travel Show in London was a brilliant opportunity to meet many of you and to help some of you think about your next adventure.

We have been really busy since the show steadily working through the ideas we discussed with you. One thing we have taken on board since talking to many of you at the show was that you wanted to go to Nepal, but only had limited annual leave. We’ve therefore introduced a 2-week Everest Base Camp trip, and a 2-week Annapurna Base Camp (Annapurna Sanctuary) trip.

Also, many of you were interested in the Alta Via 1 in the simply divine Italian Dolomites. This is a sublime trek, and is very adaptable in length. Tell us how many days you have and we’ll put an itinerary together for you.

If we haven’t contacted you yet, and you’re impatient to find out an itinerary or price, please do get in touch.

Ann has also just been on a flying visit to Slovenia to look at putting together new trips there. We’re looking at hut-to-hut treks in the Julian Alps / Triglav area and family multi-activity holidays. Slovenia also lends itself to a quick getaway for those of you who just have a long weekend or a week to enjoy the mountains. Let us know if there is anything in particular you would like us to organise for you…

One thing that we pride ourselves on here at trekMountains is the number of clients who come back for further treks with us. Check out the reviews from our clients here.

We’d love to offer a prize to everyone, but sadly that isn’t possible. However, if you weren’t the lucky winner, don’t worry – whilst many of our trips are tailor made, but our prices are competitive with the big providers.

Congratulations to the winner of our competition – Sarah Turpin – you have won £200 off a trek to be taken in 2017 or 2018 when you book with a friend, family or group of friends. we are looking forward to planning the trek you are dreaming of for you.
