Join us for the ultimate fundraising adventure of a lifetime this October in Peru!
From high remote mountain trails to traditional Andean villages and Incan ruins, this is a challenging trek on steep trails climbing to 4600m in fantastic and diverse mountainous country.
Our trek takes us into the Lares region of the Peruvian Andes, passing green valleys, tranquil mountain lakes and high passes, with breath-taking views of snow-capped Andean peaks rising to just under 6,000m. Discover the magestic Machu Picchu, the legendary ancient Lost City of the Incas, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
This trip is taking place from the 23rd October to the 1st of November 2019, with 4 days of trekking. You’ll make memories that will last forever, push yourself to the limit, and know that long after you’ve completed the challenge, you will be helping deliver life-saving essential aid to those who are suffering around the world.
By signing up to this life-changing challenge you will be asked to raise a minimum of £4,000, to support our EMERGENCY RESPONSE campaign to help protect and save thousands of families from the devastating effects of natural disasters and conflict. There’s no upper limit to how much you can raise though, and we expect participants will go above and beyond to raise as much as they can.
