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

We understand that taking even one small step outside your comfort zone can be adventurous... and challenging. And with the demands of life, that one small step can seem impossible even for an experienced trekker. 

So if you are new to trekking or just finding it hard to get your next adventure off the ground, we're here to help you take that first step and however many more you need to take to get you to the top!

Ready to take that first step? You're ready to choose your adventure... get fit... get equipped... and get going!

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.
