Fully supported luxury walking and trekking holidays across some of the world’s most inspiring locations.
About Trekking Holidays
Jaw-dropping mountain views. Paths that follow centuries-old trade routes. Nights under the Milky Way. From gentle walks to challenging treks, being on foot gives you access to some of the world’s most inspiring locations.
These are journeys that allow you to travel slowly through a landscape supported by mobile camp and are among the most rewarding ways to experience truly wild areas. Your guide’s biggest strength is to let you into some of the secrets of the area – smoothing the way into remote temples, pointing out sacred birds and rare mountain goats, or perhaps arranging a meeting with the local oracle.
As you walk, you’ll carry only what you need for the day. From steamy forest to frosted hills, through sun or snow, by afternoon your luggage will appear at your overnight stop carried by a porter, pony or your very own yak. After a day of fresh air and exercise, your camp is there to welcome you with a hot dinner and a cosy bed or sleeping bag. Quite simply, it’s a world away from the ordinary.

Wilderness treks are an experience of a lifetime
Days have a carefree, reassuring rhythm on our private trekking trips.
Each morning, you’re woken with a steaming glass of milky ‘bed tea’, then after breakfast, you’re off with a guide who knows the way like the back of his hand. No matter what your ability or the type of walk you choose, you dictate the pace. There’s no need to worry about holding anyone up or pushing on if you’re in the mood for a challenge.

Trekking Holiday (FAQs) Need to Know
Are treks and expeditions with Natural High safe?
Safety is of paramount importance to us when planning trekking holidays. We will always have a good conversation with you to understand your appetite for adventure, fitness levels and experiences so we can consult with our partners on the ground and create a truly unforgettable experience, without pushing things too far. Every trip we plan is tailor-made. We work with only the most experienced guides on the ground so you will be in expert hands.
What travel insurance will I need for a trekking holiday?
Some travel insurance policies cover trekking as standard, however always check the policy wording and excess levels, which may be more where trekking cover is included. Trekking will usually be covered as standard below 2,000m (6,562ft) altitude – any higher and you may need specialist cover. But if trekking is the main purpose of your holiday i.e. trekking from point to point, you will probably need specialist cover so always consult with us and your insurance provider to make sure the correct cover is in place and there are no nasty surprises.
How fit do I need to be to go on a trekking holiday?
You don’t need to be super fit to enjoy our walks and treks as we can design your trip around your ability. With your personal guide by your side, you walk at your own pace. For anyone in normal good health we can recommend many excellent relatively easy day walks along rural trails used by villagers and children, across fields and hillsides to reach farms and schools, often still with fabulous views. Of course, we can suggest more challenging multi-day treks too. If you’re interested in multi-day treks, we always recommend you begin a programme of regular exercise at least two months prior to your holiday.
An important factor to consider is the altitude of your trek. Above 2,500m (8,200ft) there is less oxygen in the air and therefore less reaching your lungs and organs. This means exercise is harder at altitude, and you may become tired more quickly. If you’re trekking above 4,000m (13,123ft) it’s likely you’ll experience symptoms of altitude sickness such as mild headaches and breathlessness, but given time to acclimatise, your body will adjust.
