Trekking and Cycling Adventures

Frequently Asked Questions

Presentations in your home town:

If you have a group who are interested in a trip that Trekking Adventures offer, we are very happy to come to your area (within New Zealand) so you can visually see what  to expect from the culture and the day to day itinerary of your chosen trip and country.   A visual group presentation is one of the best ways to  mix with other like- minded people, to share ideas and to plan for what can be the dream of a lifetime in the making.

Do all trips involve trekking?

Trekking Adventures provides the opportunity to choose between trekking and non trekking trips to enable everyone to experience the culture whether participating on a safari in Africa, in Nepal trekking the Himalayan mountains or travelling to far off places such as Tibet, Bhutan, India, Vietnam, Mongolia,  Ethiopia, Egypt or New Zealand.

Do I need any mountaineering skills?

No mountaineering skills are required as all Trekking Adventures trips are non technical and on formed tracks.

Are there any easy trips?

Trekking Adventures offers both the less strenuous lowland trips and the more challenging trekking options of crossing 5,445 metre passes, catering for people of all levels of fitness and aspirations.

Do I have to carry my own luggage while trekking?

All trekking trips will be supported (while trekking) with local porters/yaks or mules who will be carrying your main backpack. You will be expected to carry your own day pack which should be big enough to carry a camera, jacket, water etc to support you during the day of trekking.

What is the accommodation like?

To give maximum comfort, Trekking Adventures and their clients stay in a mixture of hotels, friendly local teahouses (which have beds, comfortable foam mattresses and pillows), huts, resorts and lodges, tents on some of the trips –  and boat on the New Zealand trekking trips.  All trips will be on a shared basis, and while some of the accommodation may be more basic than what you are accustomed too, it is certainly comfortable and many rooms have an ensuite.  This enables you to interact with the local culture and gain some treasured lifetime memories and new found friends.

What about meals?

Some meals are all inclusive on some trips while on others you are responsible for your own meals.  Please consult your itinerary to see what is included. Most trips include one group dinner.

Are international airfares included?

International airfares are at an extra cost to the advertised price. Trekking Adventures will meet you at your point of entry into the country of your chosen trip. On some trekking trips the domestic airfares are included. Please consult the itinerary to see the inclusions.
