K2 with Earths Edge

Do you want to have an adventure? Would you rather take on a mountain than lie on the beach? Does the thought of a sun and sea holiday leave you cold? Well, a trekking expedition is the perfect trip for you! You’ll spend your days hiking through incredible scenery, seeing the sides of a country few others do. And the feeling you get at the end? There’s no sense of accomplishment like it. But what are the best trekking expeditions in the world? Here are our top recommendations…

The best trekking expeditions in the world

Here are some of the best trekking expeditions in the world

  • Kilimanjaro
  • Machu Picchu
  • Everest Base Camp
  • Aconcagua
  • Mount Elbrus

Climb Kilimanjaro with Earth's Edge


The OG of treks, the climb up the world’s tallest freestanding mountain is incredible. Our expedition takes 12 days all in, so it’s perfect if you only have two weeks to spare. Standing on the Roof of Africa? There’s nothing like it.

Trek Machu Picchu with Earth's Edge

Machu Picchu

Sure, there are easier ways to get to Machu Picchu. But they’re nowhere near as fun as our expedition. This 16-day expedition weaves through amazing, untouched scenery, as well as the ancient city Choquequirao. Our unique itinerary means you’ll experience things that no one else on the Inca Trail will get to see.

Everest base camp with Earth's Edge

Everest Base Camp

Everest is the mountain that everyone knows. But it’s a dangerous climb. Did you know, though, that the trek to Everest Base Camp is every bit as impressive? You won’t get to the summit, but you’ll be standing among giants. Our expedition is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Aconcagua camp with Earths Edge


Ever heard of the highest mountain in South America? Aconcagua is it. And it’s a beast. Definitely not one for the lighthearted (or new trekkers), Aconcagua is a tough trek. But it’s absolutely worth it. Our 21-day itinerary takes you on the biggest and best challenge of your life.

Trek Aconcagua with Earth's Edge

Mount Elbrus

Another tough one, Europe’s highest mountain is a beauty. Our 14-day itinerary takes you to the summit via the Northside, rather than the Southside. That means you’ll be taking on a genuine expedition, rather than taking the easy way with cable cars! You’ll see the side of a mountain that few others get to experience.

Remember, Earth’s Edge is the only company in the world that sends an international guide and doctor on every single one of our expeditions. This means the level of safety we offer is unparalleled. And at the end of the day, your safety is the most important thing.
