CHALLENGE CONFIDENCE

UPDATED 1st August 2021

We have defered all of our 2021 departures to 2022, to ensure your health on our events is our primary focus.

As we move into 2022, will be assessing each particular challenge 3 months before its departure, and if the FCDO advice is that we are not able to travel to that country, then the event will be postponed and you will have a choice of dates to defer to and even switch destination if you would prefer.

The Vaccine rollout has been an incredible success, with a large percentage of the UK will be vaccinated. There is also some talk of Covid Vaccine certificates to enable people to travel although we are waiting for more information to be issue on this point.

5 Star Challenge Confidence 699 Main Himalayas

We want everyone who books a challenge with us to have peace of mind. That's why we've launched our 5-Star Promise - giving you Challenge Confidence:

1. UK medic on every Challenge Group as standard

Get peace of mind, knowing that you have the support of a UK qualified medic with you every step of the way on every Challenge Group.

 

They will run daily check ups, and are on hand to help with any medical issues that arise during the challenge.

2. Covid-secure services in-country

We've been working closely with our teams across Bhutan, India & Nepal to develop Covid-secure processes on the ground. 

 

From more space on bus transfers and at meal times, to crew screenings before every challenge and temperature checks while on the trail -  plus our usual high standards of hygeine & service throughout. See below for more details.

3. If another lockdown, change date at no extra cost

If there is another lockdown, or travel restrictions that affect your departure date, then you can change to another departure date at no extra cost. This can be another Himalayas Challenge date, or another challenge entirely, such as Kilimanjaro or Machu Picchu.

4. No quibble, money-back guarantee if trip cancelled

If your trip date can't go ahead due to a lockdown or travel restrictions, you can switch to any other challenge date at no extra cost.

 

However, if this doesn't work for you, then we are offering a no-quibble money back guarantee. 

 

If you can't go on your chosen date, then you won't be out of pocket.

5. Secure your place today for a low deposit

Start your Kilimanjaro adventure today, and secure your place with our low deposits.


Pay a small initial deposit to secure your place, and pay nothing until else until 10 weeks before departure!
