Kilimanjaro 360° Mountain Bike Charity Challenge
19 – 27 Sep 2020
Registration fee £400.

From what will feel like a safari on two wheels, it covers African savannah, the Maasai lands, farmlands, plantations and some rainforest. A tough non-technical 5 day challenge averaging 57km per day (the superb e-bikes are available). You may see Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest and Gazelle all roaming freely.

How Long? Nine days UK – UK, five days riding.
How Hard? Can be tough in places. Snowshoeing is slightly more physical than walking, but distances are manageable.
How Good? Excellent. A really good insight in what surrounds the big mountain, such variety. Stay in Lodges (not camping) so good recovery facilities. Support vehicles and mechanics on hand.

Sahara Desert
20 – 28 Mar 2021
Registration Fee – £250.

This trek is one of the best experiences out there simply because it’s so different. It’s liberating and few people, if any, come back not wanting more. It’s fun, it’s infectious, adventurous, it’s just different. The Sahara is a vast, safe area and you will be hard pushed to see anyone else. Lose the mobiles, ipads and anything that needs electricity and say goodbye to the world for 5 days!

How Long? Nine days UK – UK (Sat – Sun), five days trekking.
How Good? Absolutely brilliant. Superb in a group as there’s nothing around you except lots and lots of sand. Seriously good fun with the high dunes and it’s a very safe area. It’s camping in a warm environment (if not hot).

Snowshoe Challenge
24 – 30 Jan 2021.
Registration fee £250
This 7 day Snowshoe Charity Trek includes 5 days of remote snowshoeing on the eastern Finnish border with Russia. This pristine winter wonderland is home to more Reindeer than people such is the beauty of this National Park. And how can you miss the infamous Finnish saunas and ‘ice swims‘

How Long?  Seven days UK – UK, five days snowshoeing.
How Hard? – Moderate. More physical than walking, gently undulating terrain through forest.
How Good? – Very good and it’s very different. Beautiful terrain in a remote part of Finland, classic winter hut accommodation. There is also the infamous Finnish sauna culture + the ice swims, if you dare!
