Trekking & Expeditions Tours & Travel Guide

Trekking & Expeditions Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Trekking and other expeditions -- which often involve camping -- are a key aspect of adventure travel. Whether you're trekking in the Himalayas, crossing the Sahara, or joining an expedition to the Amazon rainforest, a good tour operator can ensure you have a safe and productive trip. Let Stride help you make your next expedition an adventure, not an ordeal.

Trekking and camping is a great way to slow down and really experience a country at the local level. You’ll likely walk past or through small villages, like the ones found in the Khumbu of Nepal and on the way to Machu Picchu in Peru. You’ll also have a chance to really connect with your travel companions over shared meals around the fire after a challenging but exhilarating day of trekking.

How to Choose the Right Trekking Trip

Choosing the right trip and tour company for your trekking vacation is key. Not only do you want quality service and a knowledgeable guide, but your safety is paramount and it can be hard to know which companies to trust. Stride is here to make the narrowing down process easier!

Options for Everyone

Treks can range from easy walks on relatively flat ground, such as the Abel Tasman route in New Zealand, to full on, expedition style adventures, like trekking to Mount Everest base camp in Nepal. When first researching a trekking trip, be honest with your physical shape. Does trekking for 5-6 hours per day for 12 days in a row at high altitude sound like fun? Great, then maybe Everest Base Camp is calling you! On the contrary, if that sounds like your worst nightmare, but you still want to get the blood pumping and enjoy the outdoors, perhaps you would enjoy trekking in the highlands of Thailand or Vietnam to experience local villages and indigenous life. Or, for something off the beaten path, you can trek through centuries old villages in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, stopping each night at local guesthouses for a delicious meal of couscous and hot mint tea.

Safety & Training

Trekking in the outdoors is inherently more risky than some other travel styles, but there are two main factors in ensuring you have the trip of a lifetime and the safest possible experience. First is the reputation and qualifications of the tour company and their guides. How long has the tour company operated in the area that you’re traveling to? Are their guides trained in basic First Aid? For high altitude treks in Nepal, Tanzania, and elsewhere, do guides carry a gamow bag, which can help reverse the effects of altitude sickness and/or supplemental oxygen? These are all questions to research here on Stride or directly with your chosen tour operator.

The second factor is the type and amount of training you put in before you even land in your destination. For trekking specifically, nothing beats going on long hikes in your local hills, ideally with a weighted backpack. If you don’t have easy accessibility to the outdoors, the stairmaster at the gym will definitely do the trick! The more you put in on the front end in terms of preparedness, the more enjoyment you will get out of your trekking trip experience.
