Climb Kackar Mountains

The Kaçkar Mountains are composed of several ranges lying in the north-east of Turkey, just south of the Black Sea. The many summits between 3000 and 4000m and deep forested valleys cover a vast area some of which is inaccesible on account of the deep snow between November and April. Bears, ibex, wolves, mountain goats, deer, Persian red-squirrels, wild pigs amongst other animals inhabit the forested slopes and numerous birds, many on their migration routes, may be seen.

Climbing Margherita Peak

5,109 metres – Margherita Peak is Africa’s third highest peak – however the real beauty is in the climb up the Kilembe route where the forests, valleys and flora is diverse with trees and valleys of ferns. The trees are alive with many species of birds and primates and as you walk up the trail you will see chimp nests high up in the tall trees. If you’re lucky you may catch a glimpse of the resident chimpanzee as they scamper away.

Rwenzori Mountains

The Rwenzoris – also known as the fabled “Mountains of the Moon” – lie in Western Uganda along the Congo border. Their snow-capped equatorial peaks rise to a height of 5,109m, while lower slopes are blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. Most of the Park is accessible only to hikers although the magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine Rift endemics would be ample reward for bird lovers.

Climb Gran Paradiso in Italy

Since our first trip in 2004 we have ran many successful trips to the Gran Paradiso area. The walking here is superb though quite tough – 4 to 7 hours per day involving considerable uphill and downhill sections but generally this is on well made up, gentle-angled, zig-zagging paths.
