This year our fabulous teams at SOAS are taking on the following challenges


Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Rising 5,895 m from the East African plains, it is capped by Uhuru Peak – meaning “freedom” in Swahili. Standing on this frosty peak puts you on the Roof of Africa, where you can gaze down on the clouds, and up across acres of blue sky. Known as the Whisky Route, Machame follows a quieter path to the summit and offers a more authentic experience than the busier ‘Coca-Cola’ Marangu Route.

Registrations are now open! Feel free to get in touch with us to answer any of your questions!

Machu Picchu

 You will leave the bustling colonial town of Cuzco, wind up through quiet tracks in the shadows of the High Andes and reach the spectacular ruins of the ancient city of Machu Picchu. The 6-day Salkantay trek was named as one of the 25 Best Treks in the World by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine and takes the traveller through steamy rainforests, High Andean peaks and epic Peruvian landscapes.

Registrations are currently not open for this challenge. Register your interest and we will let you know when registrations open.
