Annapurna Base Camp trek

  • Next tour:
  • 09.04.2023

Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp is a classic tour to Nepal from which it is convenient to begin acquaintance with the Himalayas. Its advantages are low complexity (relative to other trekking routes in Nepal), high variability (there is an opportunity to adjust the route to a group), the ability to retreat. At the same time, the trip to the heart of Annapurna gives an opportunity to see the Himalayas from different directions - both tropical jungle at the foot and ice walls of peaks. The maximum height to which we will rise is 4200 meters.

After the hike, there is time to get acquainted with the sights of Kathmandu and its environs: royal palaces, Hindu and Buddhist shrines and unusual people meeting on the streets of this ancient city.

The Eastern Lycian trail - trekking in Turkey

Lycian trail - one of the best hiking routes in Europe, runs through the mountains of the Taurus, adorning the Lycian Peninsula (Mediterranean sea). Trekking in Turkey is much more interesting than " olinclusive " in Turkey. In addition to the chic beaches and picturesque coves, you will see mighty mountain peaks, and along the way you will get to know the real, non-tourist Turkey. 

The eastern section of the Lycian trail is more mountainous than the Western and Central Lycia. There are slightly more mountains and a little less than the sea. The route is built according to the classical scheme "mountain-sea hike". First we storm the peaks and passes, and at the end we go down to the coast to relax on the wild beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.

«First time in Nepal» - trekking + jungle + rafting

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

Getting to Nepal is a program for those who first go to the big mountains and yet do not feel ready for the "cold" high-mountain adventures on more complex tracks (to Mount Everest or around Annapurna). In this round, the maximum altitude is only 3200 m, and it can conquer it even to people who have never been to the mountains. Nevertheless, stunning views of the eight-thousand-meter Dhaulagiri and Annapurna will fully allow you to experience the greatness of the Himalayas. And at the end of the track, we are waiting for a visit to the Chitwan Reserve with elephant jungle riding, a canoe ride along the crocodile river and folk dances of the Tharu tribe. And of course we will see the temples and palaces of the ancient Kathmandu. And as a small bonus - a short rafting on the river Trisuli.

The hike in Iceland

  • Next tour:
  • 26.06.2023

An ordinary hike in an unusual place is trekking among the unearthly landscapes of Iceland. There will be blue ice, black volcanic valleys, stunning waterfalls, hot geysers and of course a hurricane wind and changeable weather (as without it). The mountains themselves are not too complicated, we will fight mostly with the weather :)

Around Annapurna

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

The trekking around Annapurna is a slightly more complicated route than the tour to the Annapurna base camp. There is more mileage, a colder climate, it will be necessary to overcome much greater heights (less oxygen), and going up to the pass (the culmination of the route) will not be able to turn back, retreat without risking being late for the plane.

In general, there will be many difficulties. But if you are not afraid of difficulties, the Himalayas will generously reward you with their treasures - the immensely huge mountains (the three Annapurnas, Gangapurna, Manaslu and Dhaulagairi), rumbling mountain rivers (Martiansand and Kali Ghandaki), Buddhist monasteries, lost in the mountains, and herds of these yaks will be carried before you like an incredible dream, like a piece of another world. The highlight of the route is a visit to Lake Tilicho (height about 5000 m). The maximum height, which we will rise - 5416 meters.

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

Hike with light rucksacks in the High Tatars in Poland. All the lodging in the shelters - tents are not needed, we only bring food and sleeping bags. Many extreme radiators - i.e. generally without backpacks, but with steep climbs, narrow ridges with handrails-chains, dizzying cliffs, etc. The difficulty level is medium-high-more difficult than in the Carpathians, it's easier than in the Caucasus. For beginners (previously not in the mountains) the route is contraindicated. The weather is unpredictable - rains and winds are possible. To travel to Poland, you must have a Schengen visa or a biometric passport. The approximate total budget of the trip is 350 euros per person (cost of the tour + travel in Zakopane and back + accommodation in shelters + meals)

Western Lycian trail - trekking in Turkey

  • Next tour:
  • 09.04.2023

The western part of the Lycian trail, namely the fragment from Fethiye to Demre, can be described as a seaside route. There are no high-altitude areas, but a lot of rocky coves, secluded beaches and wonderful seascapes. The height differences are small, the backpacks are relatively light (food stocks can be replenished in small villages). This route is ideal for hiking in the off-season (early spring and late autumn), when in the higher mountains it is too cold, and here, near the sea - comfortable +18 degrees (and water of the same temperature). This part of the Lycian trail is quite suitable for hiking with children (from 8 years).

Unreal Cappadocia

  • Next tour:
  • 07.05.2023

Cappadocia is an extremely exotic place, with absolutely unearthly landscapes (from those that are printed on the cover of National Geographic). Remember, you probably heard about its miracles: stone mushrooms, underground cities, cave hotels, flights on balloons. Have you heard? And now it's time to see!

We invite you to do the impossible - " swallow " Cappadocia in 3 days. The program of the tour is very rich. Although we will go without rucksacks (and live in a civilized hostel), but I'll have to sweat. Every day - new valleys, new landscapes, hundreds of new images (cameras just do not turn off).

Trans-Ili Alatau - a campaign of the Tien Shan

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

Trekking to the Tien-Shan (the mountain range of Zailiysky Alatau) is quite a serious event with a bunch of obstacles. There will be a lot of difficult sections - a movement for the sacking of various calibers, bouncing along boulders, crossing over mountain rivers, closed glaciers, snowfall in the height of summer (there will also be rains), a bit of "mountain sickness" (up to 4000m) and of course a heavy backpack for shoulders. At the same time, this strictly walking route (not mountaineering), it does not need special equipment (good boots) and special skills. Only bullish health and mass of optimism are required:)

For a trip Kazakhstan does not need a visa and registration. It is easy to get there (daily trains and planes) and the mountains start just a few kilometers behind Alma-Ata.

Кitai – this is an amazing country. It is impossible to know even for a few trips, it will always be mysterious and incomprehensible. This sightseeing tour to China will acquaint you with the main sights of the country. In addition to traditional attractions (like the Wall or the Forbidden City), this tour places emphasis on nature - mountains, waterfalls, nature reserves. Sights, both natural and cultural, are simply incalculable. In China, there are the highest mountains in the world & ndash; The Himalayas and our path will pass along the eastern spurs of these mountains. In addition, we will visit the tops of the sacred Taoist and Buddhist mountains and pass the deepest gorge in the world – Tiger Leaping Gorge.

In this round the accent is made on natural attractions - mountains, gorges and national parks. We constantly walk and go somewhere up.

A simple trip along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey is one of the fragments of the famous "Lycian trail".

The route will be quite possible for children from 7 years old who have at least a minimum experience of hikes.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp + Gokyo lakes

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

Trekking to the Everest Base Camp with visiting the Gokyo Lakes and conquering the Cho-La Pass is the coolest route you can think of. Unlike the short 2-week tour to Everest, this route not only allows you to see much more (for example, Everest is seen here more often and better), but it's also safer to take the high altitude acclimatization (maximum altitude is 5550 m). Thanks to the availability of 3 spare days, the chances of waiting out the non-flying weather in Lukla are significantly increased. And in case of early implementation of the program we will go on a safari in the jungles of the Chitwan Reserve. The only question is, are you ready for Everest?
