At Icon Adventures you don't have to be an experienced adventurer, just adventurous!

Our expert team can help you choose your adventure... get fit... get equipped... and get going!

We have outstanding teams of local guides and porters who work with us every year in each of our destinations. They are our partners and our friends around the world.

Join one of our guided tours or allow us to tailor a private tour to suit you. Our personalised travel service will assist you with all aspects of your trip; from booking flights and hotels to arranging insurance and visas.

What to Expect

Expect to be Challenged! Physical fitness and mental toughness are equally important on any multi-day trekking adventure. You will hike up to 16 kilometres each day; you may have to deal with rain, mud and the effects of altitude; you'll sleep rough in tents or cabins then get up and do it again... and it will be wonderful fun!

Expect Success! Prepare well and surprise yourself with what you can achieve!

Fitness requirements

The fitter you are the more you will enjoy this trek. Our fitness partners can help you with your training programme to give you the edge you will need.


We will assist you with all aspects of your preparation during the 6 months prior to departure.

You will recieve an information pack and monthly emails and phone calls to discuss your progress. And of course you are welcome to contact us any time if you have questions about any aspect of your trek.
