As much of the world welcomes tourists back with open arms (and limited Covid restrictions), you now only have one choice to make... where to go on your next adventure?


At Kandoo Adventures we've selected the most iconic trips in stunning natural landscapes across the world. Here are just a few of the highlights for you to consider:

Everest Base Camp

Our Everest Base Camp trek is one of the most “classic” treks in the Himalayas. It combines a rigorous hike with some of the world’s most unforgettable views, cultural experiences and for many, it becomes the ultimate destination of a lifetime. Being in the presence of the Himalayas, and seeing Mt. Everest first hand is an experience that not many people have a chance to live through.


There are actually two Mt. Everest Base Camps. The South Base Camp is in Nepal, and the North Base Camp is in Tibet.


There is a huge difference between both, although most newbies usually do not realize this before they start their research into the trek. The North Base Camp is easily accessible by a paved road, while the South Base camp is more remote and has porter-accessible trails leading to it.


Both base camps are frequently visited by hikers and trekkers that want to have a taste of the atmosphere and see climbers setting off on their summit attempts.


Nepal

Trekking in Nepal is an adventure that many people return to year after year. There are many trails and amazing things to see here - from small tea houses to secluded temples. A hike through the trails of Nepal can be a very crowded and social experience, but it can also be one of the most solitary and profound memories that you’ll ever make.

Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is actually a dormant volcano. It’s not a single volcano, and it has three volcanic cones. It is one of the world’s most famous and popular mountains to climb, and thousands of people journey here every year in order to challenge themselves and to take in some of Tanzania’s famous views and perhaps have a chance to witness some big game like elephants, giraffes, zebras and lions. Tanzania is home to the famous big 5 of the safari world, and a lot of trekkers don’t just stop at climbing the famous mountain.


Tanzania is a huge tourist destination - and has recently removed it’s 14-day quarantine requirements. You also don’t have to supply a negative COVID-19 test on arrival. Still, if you exhibit any symptoms on arrival, you will be screened and may require isolation.


Norway

Trolltunga, Norway
Norway is widely regarded for it's stunning scenery with the Lofoten Islands in the North being widely regarded as the most beautiful place on earth. We have a specific trip that includes fishing in kayaks in the Lofoten Islands, a truly unique and memorable experience for any adventurer.

Our Best of South Norway trip includes an incredible hike to Trolltunga. 1,100 feet above sea level, this jaw dropping cliff edge looks like a huge tongue stretching out towards Lake Ringedalsvatnet 700 meters below.

Norway is also great for accommodation, with stays in fisherman's huts and mountain refuges making for a real adventure.


The Alps

The Alps are beautiful and a popular tourist destination, whether for lounging or climbing mountains. The Alps stretch throughout portions of Switzerland, Italy and France. This region has some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. There are 38 that measure over 4,000 meters, which is a magnet for any climber.


One of our most popular trips is to conquer the mighty Mont Blanc, with our climbs being booked out well in advance. If you're considering climbing Month Blanc in 2023 check out our available dates today. 

The peak season is usually pretty crowded, especially around popular ski resorts. The plus side is that you don’t have to go to the ends of the world to enjoy this.


Patagonia

Patagonia is a breathtaking region in the southernmost part of South America - it lays across areas of Argentina and Chile. It’s one of the most striking, raw and wild areas in the world and is popular with off-the-beaten-path trekkers and climbers.

Our Peaks of Patagonia trip is a dream adventure for travelers featuring  the greatest hits of the region over two weeks.
