Tour Tips
  • Make sure to bring your camera to photograph the diverse wildlife and beautiful scenery you'll see.
  • Check out 50+ tours to be in a group to explore the tours, but at a slower, leisurely pace.
  • Break in your hiking shoes you will be wearing for the trip well beforehand to prevent blisters.
  • Hiking tours vary in the fitness level required and there is a wide variety available to find what's right for you. However, it's always a good idea to start getting in shape beforehand by going on some local hikes or the gym to get your endurance up for your trip.
  • Apply sunscreen before your hike and reapply throughout. You have a better chance of being burnt the higher you go.
  • Research the weather in the area for the time of year you're going. Would you be okay doing the trip if it rains often?
  • Dress in layers, as the weather may change the higher up you go. Even in warmer climates, layers, especially fabrics that breathe well, help with sun exposure.
  • Bring a supportive backpack to carry your gear. Test the backpack out before to make sure it sits comfortably on your shoulders and back and doesn't rub.
  • Stock up on water and snacks to keep you fueled.
  • Check out the activity level and miles covered per day before picking a trip to make sure you will physically be able to handle it.
  • Be flexible. The weather cannot be predicted and your plans for the day may change.
  • Always a good idea to have a small personal first aid pack, though your tour guide will usually be well equipped. You never know if you'll need it for a fall or some other ailment.

Amazing trek to ABC!

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

5.0 April 2017 Sunrise Adventure Recommend: Yes My friend and I recently traveled to Nepal from the United States and had an amazing experience trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with sunrise adventure travel! We met Suresh in Kathmandu and he was incredibly helpful in setting up our trek and accommodation/activities in Pokhara post trek. Our guide, Palman (aka Paul) was amazing as well!! He was knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, and kept us laughing with his hilarious sense of humor (which matched our own spot on!). Everything worked out exactly as Suresh promised that it would and he checked in before and after the trek to make sure that we were pleased with how things were going. We definitely felt that we were in good hands with both gentleman and would highly recommend Sunrise Adventure Travel. The prices were very fair and our experience was unbeatable. Thanks again, SAT!

My experience with g adventures was amazing helped I have to say a huge amount by having a really fantastic group of tourists on the trek

The Inca Trail

4.0 April 2017 G Adventures Recommend: Yes My experience with g adventures was amazing helped I have to say a huge amount by having a really fantastic group of tourists on the trek. I have been in South America for three months now and was one of my best experiences. I do have to say that somehow it was ruined for a the last day when I got really very very ill by something I had either drunk or eaten prepared by your staff. I spent a horrible train ride primarily in the toilet and it got so bad that I had to have a doctor called to the hotel. 6 out of twelve of our group got very sick which makes us pretty sure that it was something prepared by the crew. It was a really huge shame that such an amazing trip was ruined by the fact that half of the team wanted to throw up while trying to enjoy Machu Picchu. I would like to say that other than this it Read more

Suggestions (Q16=no as this text box was used for suggestions instead)

The Inca Trail

5.0 April 2017 G Adventures Recommend: Yes Suggestions (Q16=no as this text box was used for suggestions instead). (1) Might travelers be given the option to purchase goods from i.e. weaving project AFTER the trip.. perhaps a website- (2) Thanks to Victor we were allowed to store purchased goods from weaving project at Hotel Inca Paradise-- it would be good if this were standard and folks may purchase more if they knew they didnt need to carry in daypack for another 4 days! (3) Ever think about offering a g-adventures "on the trail - cookbook'- The team was quite impressed with the food and particularly considering this was completed without typical kitchen appliances. (4) final suggestion- might much of what was presented during orientation be provided in the welcome packet - I realize some folks are still not going to prepare prior to the trip but for those searching for details- this would be welcome! Thank you! Read more

Hiking & Walking Tours Trips & Tour Advice

A hiking tour is one of the most rewarding ways to see a country, both in the physical accomplishment and the fabulous views. Hiking brings you close to the earth, as you wind through natural habitats, feeling the weather and smelling the air. And many options now exist to satisfy even the most cautious traveler.

Choosing a Route

It's important to make sure you look at the tour's activity level before picking the trip. If you're already physically fit and are looking for a challenge, a trip such as Machu Picchu might be a great fit for you. While no hike is going to be 100% comfortable (this isn't sailing through the British Virgin Islands on a luxurious cruise ship!) it is possible to find less intense outings. And not all hikes are up and down. For example, Mt. Cook in New Zealand is a mainly flat hike, though long. A good option for those worried about elevation or wanting to avoid a strenuous hike. If that still sounds like little too much, consider starting out with a walking tour!

What to Pack

The most important thing to have before you start packing is a sturdy backpack that you have tested out before the trip. Walk around with it at home and make sure it sits properly on your shoulders and back. Next, make sure you have a mix of long and short sleeve shirts, as well as shorts and pants. Depending on how long your trip is, a few of each should be enough. You don't want too heavy of a pack that weighs you down. Sunscreen and a collapsible water bottle will be something you can use everyday as well.

How to Dress

The most important things to consider when dressing are the activity level, the weather where you're going, and the time of year you're going there. The hike might start off early in the morning when it's cold, but dress in layers so you can easily peel them off as the day goes on and you warm up. A good waterproof coat will be essential as well. It can easily fold up in your backpack, but will save you from soaking through your clothes should a downpour happen.
