How we’ve helped our porters during the pandemic

There’s no doubt about it – 2020 has been an incredibly tough year. But while COVID-19 has had a brutal impact on our lives here in Ireland, we are fortunate enough to have support systems in place that have helped us all through this year. However bad things get, we know we’re not going to starve. Sadly, that’s not the case around the world.

Covid 19 in Peru and what we are doing

Peru is one of the world’s worst hit countries by Covid 19. The virus has swept through the country with devastating effect. Edgar, Maruja and the rest of our team are all ok but many of the elderly people in their lives are sick and, in some cases, have passed away. It is an incredibly difficult time for them. Peru has not managed to suppress the virus and has the 7th highest number of recorded cases in the world. So sadly, there is no end in sight to the current level of devastation. Our thoughts are with the people of Peru and everyone else in the world that has been affected by Covid 19.

Spring Clean for the porters on Kilimanjaro

Roughly 35% of our clients annually travel to Tanzania to take on Kilimanjaro and summit the world’s highest free-standing mountain. We are always trying to collect second-hand outdoor clothing to donate to our amazing porters who do so much to make each and every climb a special one.

Earth's Edge Kerry Mountains Guided Expedition

Self-isolation: An Expedition Home from Home.

Millions of people around the world are currently shutting themselves away from their loved ones, their hobbies and their work in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. For the vast majority of these people this is an unprecedented, hopefully once in a lifetime, event that has left them re-evaluating their situations and the things we once took for granted. For a small number of us, isolation, physically, mentally and emotionally, is something we have come across before.

What Our Clients Say

The Kenya Tri-Adventure is an amazing trip. I have done lots of trekking holidays before but I feel like this trip had the perfect mixture of disciplines. When I look back I don’t know how we fit that much into 11 days. The hike is…
