Web Marketing Overview Meta 
The dramatic skyline of peaks and jagged volcanic plugs which tower over the highland plateaux of the Simien Mountains compete with rugged gorges and deep gullies to form what is, arguably, the most awe-inspiring landscape in Africa. As we trek through this distant mountain range we pass small hamlets where villagers eke out an existence from the limited arable land. We may come across large troops of Gelada baboons foraging on the escarpment; and, with luck, spot Walia ibex and Ethiopian wolves.

  • 9 nights wild camping, 4 nights standard hotels with en suite facilities
  • 10 days point-to-point walking with full porterage
  • Good physical condition required
  • Altitude maximum 4543m, average 3300m
  • All breakfasts, 9 lunches, 9 dinners
  • All accommodation (see below)
  • All transport and listed activities
  • Tour leader throughout
  • Flights from London (if booking incl. flights)
  • It is likely to be sunny most of the time on all departures. Most of Ethiopia is high, so although the sun is powerful, the temperature is usually very pleasant. There is, however, the risk of sunburn at high altitude, so it is essential you ensure you are adequately protected. Nights are generally cool to cold, depending on altitude and frosts are possible overnight in the mountains, when the night temperature could drop to 0degC and exceptionally to -5degC. Daytime temperatures seldom rise above 25degC except at lower altitudes. It can be very hot in the lowlands in December, January and February. The main rains come between June and late September, and while November is one of the coolest months of the year it is also generally one of the clearest. January and February will be hotter and much drier. The landscape is likely to be more arid than in October and November, which can still be quite lush after the rains. Please note that there is a possibility of rain on all departures (especially October).

Weather & seasonality

Trek through Ethiopia's dramatic Simien Mountains.

All breakfasts, 9 lunches, 10 dinners Hotel meals are generally good although they can lack variety. Local dishes tend to be very good if you like hot, spicy food although milder versions can be requested. Local food is traditionally eaten with the hands. The sour bread known as injera is used as a scoop for the casserole dishes known as wat. All food on trek is cooked for you and, although local produce can be a bit limited in the mountains, it is usually of a high standard. Vegetarians can be catered for, though you may find the diet somewhat limited. Clients who have specialist dietary requirements must contact us to discuss if they can be accommodated. Ethiopia is a poor country and they are not familiar with gluten or lactose free diets. Please note that you should not drink the tap water in Ethiopia. We also suggest that clients bring snack food as this can be difficult to obtain outside of Addis Ababa.
This is a strenuous trek with several days spent close to or above 4,000 metres. There are a number of long days including the optional ascent of Ras Dashen, at 4,543m the highest mountain in Ethiopia; this involves 1,300m of ascent and descent in one day. There is also a lot of ascent and descent on many of the other days, and some fairly exposed rough trails. We do not suggest that you attempt this trek unless you are confident of your ability. The total cumulative amount of ascent is 6,500m, and the descent is 7,650m. There are 10 days walking with full porterage, and the trip is graded C (this is at the tougher end of the grade C scale though). On the October departures there is the possibility of some river crossings. The trails in the Simien Mountains are generally well marked and the landmarks are distinctive. We will be walking for about 6-7 hours a day (although on 4 days as much as 10-12 hours) and the terrain can be quite tough in places. Much of the trek is in remote areas. If you suffer from vertigo, you may want to carefully consider this trip before booking. There are steep drops in the Simien Mountains, which is what makes the scenery so spectacular. There is never an occasion when you need walk close to the edge of the cliffs so if you are happy to stand back you should not be discomforted in any way.

Web Marketing Overview Meta 
Notoriously a difficult route due to lack of water and cramped accommodation en route, the GR20 is arguably Europe’s finest and toughest trek. This itinerary takes away many of the trek's usual hardships, as we sometimes deviate from the classic route to stay in private, less crowded, refuges. We only carry daypacks and take a rest day in the beautiful citadel of Corte, allowing us to enjoy the fabulous walking. The landscapes and terrain vary enormously from precipitous and dramatic cliff-top paths to lush green meadows. An incredible legendary hike finally made more comfortable.

Corsica's legendary long-distance trek

All breakfasts, 11 lunches and 12 dinners are included. Breakfasts include tea or coffee, bread and jam. Packed lunches vary between accommodations, but usually include bread, cheese, ham and a pasta salad. Dinners normally include a hot simple three course meal. Please note that it can be difficult (but not impossible) to cater for vegetarians on the GR20. The gites are in isolated places and depend upon local produce. You should be able to get cheese sandwiches for lunch and often omelettes or basic pasta dishes are available for the evening dinners. Please bring a good supply of protein (nuts and seeds) to keep up your energy levels if this concerns you, as this may be lacking. No other dietary requirements will be able to be catered for.
The GR20 requires a good level of fitness, mountain walking experience and a sure footedness for the rocky landscape and mountain ridges, as well as a head for heights. Although not technically challenging, it involves plenty of ascents and descents, scrambling and the occasional use of fixed chains and a ladder (via ferrata). Each day we can expect to walk for an average of 6 to 9 hours (not including stops) with considerable daily ascents and descents with rough underfoot (averaging +800m and -800m per day, not including the optional summit ascents/descents). The main luggage is driven from base to base for us on most days, so we only have to carry our gear for the day and perhaps a packed lunch. However, on 2 occasions our accommodation is inaccessible by road, therefore we will need to carry our sleeping bag and overnight belongings for 4 consecutive days. Please ensure your daysack is big enough to carry all the necessary equipment. The paths are well marked with red and white painted signs on rocks, trees and other convenient objects. However, our itinerary diverges from the classic trail at times to take you to see more fantastic scenery, as well as taking you to less crowded, and more comfortable gites for the night.

Rugged mountains, open grasslands, deep canyons and ancient woodlands reveal the immense beauty and diversity of eastern South Africa. We spend our days exploring this vast land: tracking its wildlife on foot, hiking through its highlands and forests and going on game drives in the famous Kruger N.P. We complete our journey with a visit of the little-known kingdom of Swaziland and enjoy a boat tour in St. Lucia’s wetlands.

  • Although the greater part of South Africa lies north of the tropic of Capricorn, the temperature is moderated by the altitude. The average midday temperature is likely to be about 22degC on the coast and 24degC inland. This trip covers various different weather regions. Generally inland areas will be dry between the months of April and October (although storms can occur), whereas in the Drakensberg Mountains rain is more common at this time. In August the nights can be very cold, especially in the Drakensberg where temperatures can drop below freezing. However the days are warm and crisp with generally cloud-free skies. During the months of November through February rain can sometimes be expected and the temperature will be higher. However, as anyone who has travelled to these parts will say, rain is often a blessing, it manifests the local colours, drops the sometimes sweltering temperatures and never generally lasts too long. It also means the night times are incredibly clear.

Weather & seasonality

Trek South Africa's Drakensberg and go on safari in Kruger

All breakfasts, 14 lunches, 14 dinners included. The list below provides an indication of what these will consist of: Breakfast - cereals, coffee, tea and toast, the occasional cooked breakfast. Lunch - cheese, cold meats, salads, bread or rolls. Dinner - potjies (stew), braais (barbecue), stir fries, pasta. Most generally cooked on the open fire. Please be aware that we need at least two weeks notice to deal with special dietary requirements (e.g. vegetarian or allergies.) For this reason if you did not indicate these on your booking form please advise the Exodus office as soon as possible. The tour leaders do all the shopping and meal planning for each group. He/she will always try to obtain fresh produce wherever possible. Each tour has 2 cool boxes for meats and fresh produce and 1 cool box for cold drinks. We will supply the following drinks: fruit squash served with breakfast and tea or coffee served with breakfast and dinner. All other beverages will be at your own expense. We do not supply bottled drinking water although it is available at many shops on tour if you want to buy it yourself. Please note on days when the group are on morning game walks or drives we will have an early morning cup of coffee and rusks followed by the walk. Once we return to camp we will have a large brunch at around 11am. In the early afternoon we will have a snack style lunch and dinner will be served after completion of the optional game drives.
There are a few long drives but the reward is an itinerary that offers an amazing variety of walking in diverse scenery, plus exciting game viewing, in a comparatively short time. It is a full-service camping safari using a mixture of organised campsites and basic cabins. This is primarily a walking trip, although there is still time to go on an organised safari to Kruger National Park We climb to a maximum of 2900m. We grade our walking and trekking trips and we have graded this particular trip as a grade 3. Good health and reasonable fitness are important and you should take regular exercise before travelling on this trip. B grades are either fairly easy medium-duration walks or harder, shorter walks. There is some walking at higher altitude and occasional longer/harder days may be involved. Generally underfoot conditions will be fair. A walking day is normally 4-8 hours. Seasonal Game Viewing The game viewing is generally at its best from July to September. This is because visibility improves due to the trees losing their leaves and because the game is more restricted to the areas that have water. The bush at this time, though, is much drier compared to earlier in the season and scenically the country is generally at its prettiest in April - June. The migratory birds are visible between October - April. There are some ladders to climb while walking in the Drakensberg. The ladders are in two stretches, a longer (about 30m/100feet) first stretch and a shorter (about 15m/50feet) stretch. Neither are quite vertical and they are metal ladders with thick, square edged footholds and comfortable hand holds. Whilst they're not particularly physically challenging they can constitute a slight mental challenge to some - but one that is worthwhile for the simply incredible views from the top of the escarpment. The guides are extremely experienced in taking our clients up and down these ladders and they are happy to help. Legal Note: all group members joining this tour will be asked to sign an indemnity form at the start of the holiday. This indemnity form is a requirement of the South African Tourism Service Association which our local supplier is a member of. As a client of Exodus Travels Ltd, your rights under the Package Travel Regulations (1992) are unaffected, and Exodus remains liable for the actions of our sub-contractors.

  • There can be snowfalls in the Picos as late as May, and the area is subject to rain at all times of the year (although this typically falls in the evening and rarely affects the walking). From early June to early October the weather should be very pleasant for walking, though it is rather unpredictable and mists can come in from the coast. Those wishing to join the Picos departures at the beginning and end of the trek season should go prepared for cooler weather. In early June and late September there may be snow on the upper reaches of the trek.

Weather & seasonality

All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners included. The region has several delicious specialities for you to try while you are staying here. The area is famous for its gold-medal-winning blue cheese, Queso Cabrales, which is matured in some of the thousands of deep limestone caves that dot the hills. Lesser known, but equally appealing is the local lamb Cordero al la Menta and a wholesome bean stew, Fabada Asturiana. Fresh fish comes from the coast at Llanes and Ribadesella, half an hour's drive away. The local wine is very drinkable, though a glass of local cider can be more refreshing. Breakfast: Cereals, bread, cold meats and a selection of local fruit (depending on season) offered buffet-style. There are also eggs to order, sponge and Anis cake. Lunch: Generally includes a large bread roll, cheese/cold meat/tortilla, chocolate bar and fresh fruit. Dinner: Homemade three-course meal usually consists of soup or salad for the first course, a main local dish with meat/fish and vegetables, followed by fruit or cake for dessert. Wine: To accompany the evening meal, the hotel has a reasonably comprehensive wine list available. Over the years, the hotel has developed a tasty vegetarian alternative to the normal meals. Please let us know in advance if you are vegetarian or have any other special dietary requirements.
The walking here is varied and spectacular, with some superb scenery at the higher levels. Over the course of the week we will try and tackle two classic gorges and one peak in each of the three massifs in the Picos de Europe, Spain's first national park. Most of the walking is on shepherds paths, old disused mining paths and some sections of Roman 'roads', although the final ascents of the peaks can be quite rough underfoot. All the trips are grade 3 (Moderate). However, we also offer 3 departures as Grade 5 (challenging). This is to offer those that wish the opportunity to ascend the higher peaks. It is important to be assured of your fitness on these departures. For 2015 the Grade 5 departures are the 28th March, 13th June, 25th July, 5th September, 3rd October. As in all mountain ranges, the weather is unpredictable and this may affect several walks. With changeable weather it should be expected that on some rare occasions higher-level walks may not be available. Although please be assured that our local contacts are always able to find a suitable alternative. This trip has four special departures reserved exclusively to parents travelling with children (min. age 12). Please refer to our brochure or web for more information about the available dates. These Family Departures will run with the same itinerary and inclusions of our standard Adult Departures. The level of difficulty and/or duration of the walking, however, will be adapted to the ability level and age of the children booked.

Extended trekking on the island of Isabela in the remote Galapagos archipelago is a rare privilege and we are one of only a few operators allowed here. As part of this trip we enjoy a three day trek to the 9km wide crater rim of the Sierra Negra Volcano, a hike blessed with striking views of the lava-strewn landscape and its smouldering fumaroles. As well as five major volcanoes, Isabela is also one of the last remaining habitats of the giant Galapagos tortoise. Elsewhere in the Galapagos we undertake shorter walks to appreciate the geological features of these enchanting islands and discover their unique wildlife.

  • 3 days point-to-point walking with full porterage
  • 2-3 other shorter walks
  • Altitude: sea-level to 1200m in Galapagos, 2800m in Quito
  • Group normally 6 to 16, plus local leader. Min age 16 years
  • 12 nights hotels and guesthouses in en suite rooms and 2 nights full-service wild camping in 2-person tents
  • All breakfasts, 8 lunches and 11 dinners included
  • All accommodation (see below)
  • All transport and listed activities
  • Tour leader throughout
  • Flights from London (if booking incl. flights)
  • Arrival and departure transfers
  • In Quito and the highlands it should be warm by day and generally dry. Maximum daytime temperatures are almost constant throughout the year at 20degC, nights 8degC. Some rain can be expected in February to May and October to November but storms, though heavy, are generally short, and Quito is considered to have quite a pleasant climate.
  • It is possible to visit the Galapagos at any time of year, though the weather patterns are complicated and cannot be reduced to easy formulas. The weather is controlled by the two main ocean currents of the region, the Humboldt, bringing cold water from the Antarctic, and El Nino, which brings tropical water from the Gulf of Panama. How close to Galapagos they converge (which varies from year to year) is the key to the weather.
  • 'Dry season'
  • Generally speaking, late May to early December is the cooler 'dry' season. In this period it is not necessarily dry, as there is a persistent light mist (garua) and often light drizzle, and the higher mountain slopes are covered in cloud and fog or rain. At this time the winds are in the southeast and are higher than at other times, so seas can sometimes be choppy during this period, and anyone worried about seasickness might be better advised to avoid it. Daytime maximum temperatures lie between 27 and 31degC, the cooler months being July to November. In July and August the fairly strong winds introduce a chill factor, and it can feel quite cold at nights, though throughout the year the official night temperatures vary between 19 and 24degC.
  • 'Wet season'
  • Depending on how close the convergence of the two currents comes to Galapagos, there may or may not be a wet season from January to April or May. approx. every seven years the El Nino current actually hits the islands and there will be heavy rains in these months. In other years there will be more or less rain, usually falling sporadically from otherwise clear skies. The ocean temperatures are higher, with generally calm seas and strong sunshine: pleasant, but potentially very hot. Apart from an El Nino year, the weather is usually better from December/January to April/May than at other times even if there is some rain, and most people would regard these months as the best time to go.

Weather & seasonality

A unique trek amid the volcanic Galapagos archipelago

All breakfasts, 8 lunches and 11 dinners included whilst on this trip. When camping, meals will be prepared for you by a chef who will cook a mixture of local and international dishes. Some days packed lunches of sandwiches, fruits and juice will be provided whilst at other times, meals will be taken at restaurants. The choice of meals in some areas of the Galapagos can be limited but special dietary requirements can usually be catered for if we are advised at the time of booking. When flying to and from the Galapagos, snacks are usually included on the flights.
The majority of the walking on this trip is at a leisurely pace but the Sierra Negra trek has been graded moderate. In the Galapagos the underfoot conditions will often be very rough, with some of the walking being done on sharp lava rocks which are hard on the boots, and on the limbs if you fall over. It is also likely to be hot at times, as the lava reflects the sun fiercely. We recommend this trip to those who are in a good state of physical fitness and who can withstand strong sunshine. A little patience and flexibility are also required, as it is not always possible to follow a strict schedule due to weather and sea conditions and sometimes it is better to do the planned activities in a different order (but almost always on the same day as this activity is originally planned). Please note that walking hours stated are given as approximates only. Timings stated usually include lunch and photo stops and will vary depending on the pace of your group. Altitude: sea-level to 1200m in Galapagos, 2800m in Quito

Hotels & Wild Camping
12 nights hotels and guesthouses in en suite rooms and 2 nights full-service wild camping in 2-person tents. The hotels on the Galapagos Islands are generally small, family-run establishments with limited facilities, yet all rooms have en suite bathrooms and hot water, and some have swimming pools. During the Sierra Negra trek, we camp in wild campsites with no purpose built facilities. Local staff will erect tents and perform all camp chores and horses will transport all of the equipment. Water will be provided for hand washing/cleaning and there will be a basic toilet tent. Due to national park regulations, all litter and organic food waste will be removed from the park at the end of the trek. Optional single supplement available (hotels and single tents): GBP425

Web Marketing Overview Meta 
The secretive mountain kingdom of Bhutan is one of the world’s great off-the-beaten-path destinations with its mountain-top temples, towering peaks and unique culture. As well as seeing the country’s highlights, we head to central Bhutan where we meander through meadows, Blue pine forests and bamboo groves, stopping in villages and meeting welcoming locals. We then witness the masked and fire dances and other festivities of one of Bhutan’s less visited festivals (Domkhar in May and Jambay Lakhang in November). Note that different departures follow different itineraries.

Weather & seasonality

Gentle Nepalese and Bhutanese Himalayan hiking

Breakfast is included throughout the trip and all food is provided in Bhutan. The meals in the hotels in Bhutan are usually buffet style and include Bhutanese and Western food. The food in Bhutan can sometimes be a bit bland. The meals on trek are a mixture of Bhutanese, western and Chinese. Please allow approx. GBP20-25 per day for other main meals in Kathmandu.
This is a trip for anyone who wants to combine an exploration of Bhutan's fascinating culture with a gentle trek through some of its beautiful valleys. The trek is graded as A/B and the highest point reached is 3465m. There are some up-hill and down-hill sections but nothing extreme. The trek will take you through small villages, forests and meadows as you meander through the valleys of Central Bhutan. There are a couple of longish drives and the roads in Bhutan are quite winding. Accommodation is mostly in standard hotels though 2 nights on the trek will be in spacious 2-person tents. We also provide dining and toilet tents, stools, tables, cooking and kitchen gear and a team of support staff. All groups will be accompanied by a local Bhutanese guide, who will be supported by a cook, assistant guides and yakmen. Whilst on trek we will wake you up with a cup of hot tea, and will also provide a small bowl of warm washing water in the mornings. Please note that smoking is technically banned in Bhutan. Tourists are permitted to smoke in certain designated areas but must bring their own cigarettes (up to 200 cigarettes). They must, however, pay duty on any tobacco product they import (up to 200% tax). Smoking in a public place can result in a fine as long you have proof of having paid the duty. If no proof of having paid the duty can be produced then there is the risk of a minimum 3 years imprisonment.

Web Marketing Overview Meta 
This trip takes us on a journey along an ancient, high-level, trade route in a country visited by only a lucky few. We trek through splendid rhododendron forests, past yak herder settlements, across several passes and camp beside clear, blue, mountain lakes with spectacular views of the peaks which border Tibet. We also experience Bhutan’s fascinating culture and its colourful festivals with masked dances and general joviality. Note that different departures follow different itineraries.

Breakfast is included throughout the trip and all food is provided in Bhutan. The meals in the hotels in Bhutan are usually buffet style and include Bhutanese and Western food. The food in Bhutan can sometimes be a bit bland. The meals on trek are a mixture of Bhutanese, western and Chinese. Please allow approx. GBP20-25 (USD35-45) per day for other main meals in Kathmandu.
This trip covers the best Bhutan has to offer. First we visit the idyllic Paro valley, with its impressive dzong, unique Bhutanese architecture and sleepy town centre. We also visit Thimpu the capital, having time to see the imposing government buildings and the curio shops in the town centre. The trek is a classic Himalayan trekking route. You can generally expect good service on the trek. This trip is for those would like to combine the cultural highlights of Bhutan with beautiful Himalayan walking. In Paro and Thimpu we stay at good hotels all with private facilities. 4 nights are spent on trek camping, where we provide spacious two-person tents, dining and toilet tents, stools, tables, cooking and kitchen gear and a team of support staff. All groups will be accompanied by a local Bhutanese guide, who will be supported by a cook, assistant guides and yakmen. Whilst on trek we will wake you up with a cup of hot tea, and will also provide a small bowl of warm washing water in the mornings. Travelling and Walking Conditions Nowhere on this trail are the trekking conditions difficult as we follow a route which was formerly an important link between Paro and Thimpu and which has been used for generations by pack-animals. The altitude reached on the trip is not extreme and the passes we cross are rarely covered in snow at the time of our departures. This route presents a great variety of landscapes ranging from terraced farmland, through some of the finest mixed forest in the world, to open, alpine pastureland and scenic mountain passes. Grade 3; 5 days walking; maximum altitude 4210m, average 3654m. Please note that smoking is technically banned in Bhutan. Tourists are permitted to smoke in certain designated areas but must bring their own cigarettes (up to 200 cigarettes). They must, however, pay duty on any tobacco product they import (up to 200% tax). Smoking in a public place can result in a fine as long you have proof of having paid the duty. If no proof of having paid the duty can be produced then there is the risk of a minimum 3 years imprisonment.

Walking the Amalfi Coast of Italy

Web Marketing Overview Meta 
Walking the Amalfi Coast of Italy (Trip code, TDA). The Amalfi Coast is one of the most dramatic and beautiful coastlines in Europe.
The Amalfi Coast is one of the most dramatic and beautiful coastlines in Europe. Mountains rise steeply out of the Mediterranean far below and picturesque towns nestle neatly in isolated coves.

While walking the Amalfi Coast we follow mule tracks and old paths through hillside villages, lemon groves and beautiful deep gorges, we descend from our rural base on the Agerola Plain to the towns with their narrow streets, whitewashed buildings and fascinating churches, monasteries and cathedrals. Away from the trails there is plenty of time to partake in the traditional Amalfi pastimes of sampling incredible food and wine, as well as enjoying the Mediterranean climate.

This walking holiday in Italy would not be complete without seeing the incredible Roman remains beneath the volcanic cone of Vesuvius. In 79AD the two Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum were engulfed in volcanic ash and pumice when Vesuvius erupted, preserving the buildings and leaving a unique insight into the day-to-day life of the average Roman citizen.

Saving the best till last, we complete our week with one of the world's great walks, the 'Walk of the Gods'.

Following a mixture of paths and tracks we ascend to the top of Monte Tre Calli, where we are rewarded with spectacular wide-open views of the coastline and the sea. The Agerola Plain and the village of Bomerano is laid out below us and looking west on a clear day we can see the famous island of Capri at the westernmost tip of the Sorrentino Peninsula. </div></div></div><div id="Day3FollowmuletracksandstepsdowntoAmalfi;freeafternoontoexplorethefamouscathedral." class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 3 Follow mule tracks and steps down to Amalfi; free afternoon to explore the famous cathedral.</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock"> After breakfast, we start our walk to Amalfi and the glorious coast. Today certainly has a downhill bias as we follow the path down from Bomerano at 700m to the shores of the Mediterranean and the town of Amalfi. Wonderful views of the Amalfi Coast accompany us as we follow the trail. There are sections of steps today (approx. 2600 in total), but there is plenty of opportunity to rest and go at your own pace. Amalfi itself has been popular with the British since Edwardian times when the upper classes favoured the town as a pleasant place to spend their winters. The large Duomo (Cathedral) dominates the town with its bright coloured tiles so typical of the region. We have free time to explore the town, take a swim or enjoy a well-earned ice cream before we return by bus to Bomerano. </div></div></div><div id="Day4DrivetoBayofNaples;visitfascinatingruinsofPompeiiandtakeanoptionalwalkupMtVesuvius." class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 4 Drive to Bay of Naples; visit fascinating ruins of Pompeii and take an optional walk up Mt Vesuvius.</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock"> We transfer after breakfast to the Bay of Naples where we spend the morning visiting the amazing city of Pompeii. During the long catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius which spanned two days in AD 79, Pompeii was completely buried in ash and pumice. Lost for 1700 years, Pompeii's perfectly preserved remains give us an amazing insight into the life of a Roman city. After lunch, we travel by bus high up onto the slopes of Vesuvius itself. Depending on the weather conditions, you may choose to be led by a specialist Volcano guide through one of the many incredible walks around the crater of Vesuvius (optional). </div></div></div><div id="Day5GuidedwalktoValledelleFerriereN.P." class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 5 Guided walk to Valle delle Ferriere N.P.</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock">After a short climb up a set of steps passing farmhouses and terraced vegetable patches, we reach a hillside of extensive chestnut groves. Beautiful views across the valley and down to the distant coastline reward us. Following the hillside through the groves, we make the most of the shady trails before emerging at a rocky viewpoint. We then descend along a rocky path (steep in parts) and walk through woodland where we may see wild flowers and herbs growing. <br />Over a river, and through the National Park boundary fence, we discover a lush enclave within a gorge harbouring a beautiful moss-clad waterfall. Exodus groups have exclusive access to this beautiful protected area: a nice privilege considering that no other tourists or trekkers can normally enter this natural reserve without prior consent.<br />From here the path to Amalfi is well marked and of a gentle gradient. Shells of former paper factories give way to colourful terraces of vegetables and lemon trees nestled beside quaint houses. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore Amalfi, or to enjoy a refreshing gelato.</div></div></div><div id="Day6FreedaytorelaxortakeaboattoCapri,visitNaples,RavelloorHerculaneum(alloptional)." class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 6 Free day to relax or take a boat to Capri, visit Naples, Ravello or Herculaneum (all optional).</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock"> A day to relax with the chance to take an unguided walk either through the hills or down to the sea.

Leaving from our front door step it's a short stroll through the quiet village of Bomerano before we join the Walk of the Gods. The route follows the contours of the land for the majority of the day with amazing views of the Amalfi Coastline far below. In season the hillside is carpeted with flowers and the coastal waters teem with cruisers and pleasure boats. Our destination today is Positano, an almost vertical town of colourful buildings reached by a network of ancient paths and tracks. On the way there is plenty of time to admire one of the most beautiful views of the Amalfi Coast before we descend a long series of steps to the beautiful coastal town of Positano. There is time for private exploration before we return in the late afternoon to our hotel by boat and bus. During the preceding days many meals will have included some delicious locally made smoked Mozzarella and we will have the chance to see its production and take a taste. </div></div></div><div id="Day8EndBomerano." class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 8 End Bomerano.</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock"> Transfer to Naples; fly to London. </div></div></div><div id="Alsoavailabletopurchaselist" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock"><ul><li>Single supplement (TDA)</li><li>TDA Superior Room Upgrade per week (TDA)</li><li>8 days European single trip insurance (8EST)</li></ul></div></div><div id="Wealsorecommendlist" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock"><ul><li>Kit Bag - Complimentary (KB)</li></ul></div></div><div id="Itinerarydisclaimer" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionHeading">Itinerary disclaimer</div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock">Exodus operates a 24 hour duty office for emergencies, which can be<br />contacted on 0044 (0) 1582 644 100.<br />Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read<br />the warnings in the essential information in the brochure or at www.<br />exodus.co.uk/about-exodus/essential-information?<br />Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and<br />details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately<br />2 to 3 weeks prior to departure.

Where<br />differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure,<br />the Trip Notes supersede the brochure. All holidays can be subject to<br />unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared<br />to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure,<br />it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may<br />be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other.<br />In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative<br />arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.<br />As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines<br />manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever<br />to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to<br />keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that<br />our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date.

There is no limit on the amount of foreign currency you take provided it is declared on arrival. When changing your money, ensure that you keep hold of your exchange receipt as you may need to show it at the airport bank at the end of your holiday where it's normally possible to change any unspent Dirham notes back into Euros, Sterling or US Dollars.</div></div><div id="Tipping" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionHeading">Tipping</div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock">Tipping (leader and local staff)<br />Tipping is expected but not compulsory.

  • Southern Italy, in common with a lot of the Mediterranean, possesses a hot, dry climate in summer and cooler but slightly damper spring and autumn periods. At coastal levels winters are mild and damp. Rainfall is most expected in winter months with an average of one day in three affected. Unseasonable cold spells are possible at any time of year, during which time you will need warm clothes, especially in Bomerano where evening temperatures can be lower than expected. It is very important to be equipped for cooler weather in early spring, late autumn and the winter.

Weather & seasonality

Discover the highlights of Italy's Amalfi coast on foot

All breakfasts, 4 packed lunches and 6 dinners are included. Breakfast: Continental style with a choice of cereal, bread, pastries, yoghurt, orange juice and milk with an array of teas/coffee. Lunch: Usually a sandwich filled with a choice of cold meats, tuna or locally made cheeses. Dinner: All evening meals are taken in the hotel, where the standard is excellent, and are typically Italian. Meals usually consist of four courses, commencing with antipasti, followed by soup and/or pasta, a main meat dish with salad or vegetables and dessert. Vegetarian choices are always available. On certain evenings, there is the opportunity to learn how to make the famous Neapolitan pizza. (Drinks NOT included)
Activity Level: Leisurely/Moderate. 4 days optional centre-based walking and low altitude throughout. The pace of the walks is leisurely, so we have some time to rest and enjoy the views. However, on some of the walks the terrain encountered is similar to the one you would find on a moderate walking trip. The terrain and type of path will vary from man made paved tracks, tarmac to forest trails. The Monte Tre Calli walk involves some steep climbs and descents on slightly lose terrain. Optional walks on Mount Vesuvius are on rocky cinder/gravel trails and likely to be loose underfoot, with steep sections and quite large drops in places. Routes to the coast involve large descents on many steps, so walking poles or sticks are strongly recommended. The Valle delle Ferriere walk involves some walking on narrow pathways alongside some sheer drops (not recommended for severe vertigo sufferers). All walks take between 4 and 6 hours including lunch stops and require a moderate level of fitness. On a couple of days, particularly on Day 3 (Bomerano to Amalfi walk) and Day 7 (Walk of the Gods), there are considerable sections of steps (some of which can be avoided by taking the bus). In the summer months the sun and the heat can make some of the walks more strenuous. Make sure you use a hat and stay hydrated throughout the day.

During the preceding days many meals will have included some delicious locally made smoked Mozzarella and we will have the chance to see its production and take a taste. </div></div></div><div id="Day8FlytoLondon" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 8 Fly to London</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div></div></div><div id="Day9PostTripExtraDayTitle" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSubSectionHeading">Day 9 Post Trip Extra Day Title</div><div class="TripNoteSubSection"></div></div><div id="Alsoavailabletopurchaselist" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock" ><ul><li>Single supplement (TDA)</li><li>TDA Superior Room Upgrade per week (TDA)</li><li>8 days European single trip insurance (8EST)</li></ul></div></div><div id="Wealsorecommendlist" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionSeparator"></div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock" ><ul><li>Kit Bag - Complimentary (KB)</li></ul></div></div><div id="Itinerarydisclaimer" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionHeading">Itinerary disclaimer</div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock" >Exodus operates a 24 hour duty office for emergencies, which can be<BR/>contacted on 0044 (0) 1582 644 100.<BR/>Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read<BR/>the warnings in the essential information in the brochure or at www.<BR/>exodus.co.uk/about-exodus/essential-information?<BR/>Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and<BR/>details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately<BR/>2 to 3 weeks prior to departure. If you do not receive these at least<BR/>a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our<BR/>office or your travel agent.<BR/>The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where<BR/>differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure,<BR/>the Trip Notes supersede the brochure. All holidays can be subject to<BR/>unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared<BR/>to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure,<BR/>it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may<BR/>be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other.<BR/>In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative<BR/>arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.<BR/>As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines<BR/>manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever<BR/>to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to<BR/>keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that<BR/>our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date. For accurate prices we<BR/>recommend that you contact one of our Travel Experts, or your Travel<BR/>Agent.<BR/>Prices and exchange rates were correct at the time of publication. The<BR/>most up-to-date prices can be found on the Exodus website.</div></div><div id="MoneyExchange" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionHeading">Money Exchange</div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock" >We recommend you change your money at the airport into the local currency, as Morocco only allows 1000 dirhams to be imported or exported. There is no limit on the amount of foreign currency you take provided it is declared on arrival. When changing your money, ensure that you keep hold of your exchange receipt as you may need to show it at the airport bank at the end of your holiday where it's normally possible to change any unspent Dirham notes back into Euros, Sterling or US Dollars.</div></div><div id="Tipping" class="clear"><div class="TripNoteSectionHeading">Tipping</div><div class="TripNoteDataBlock" >Tipping (leader and local staff)<BR/>Tipping is expected but not compulsory.

Web Marketing Overview Meta 
After the success of the 2013 expedition to the North Col, Exodus is returning to the high climbs of Mount Everest. New for 2015 we are operating officially the highest trek in the world, to Advanced Everest Base Camp at 6,400m. Led by legendary Exodus leader Valerie Parkinson, and joined by an expedition to the North Col, this trek allows you to experience the Everest only ever seen by those who dare to venture further than the comfort of Everest Base Camp; and the rewards are enormous. As you climb into thinner air you will pass the towering glacier pinnacles and twisted weathered snow and ice formations of the famous Magic Highway that leads to Camp 1 and 2, and then finally to Advanced Base Camp at 6,400m.

Walk the highest trek in the world to Everest North Advanced Base Camp

breakfast only included in Kathmandu, outside Kathmandu all meals are included.
This is the highest trek in the world and although you need no technical skills to walk to Advanced Base Camp, the remoteness and altitude make this trek a tough undertaking. The environment is challenging with extreme altitude and high winds that are common in this part of Tibet. The terrain is rough and there can be snow underfoot. The itinerary is planned to allow plenty of acclimatisation, however the extreme altitude may be a problem for slow acclimatisers. You need to have previous experience of trekking at altitudes over 5,000m and be reasonable confident you can acclimatise in the time available. You will sleep two nights at 6,400m.

Web Marketing Overview Meta 
After the success of the 2013 expedition, Exodus is returning to Chomolungma, also known as Mount Everest, to once again attempt to climb the iconic route to the North Col. Led by legendary Exodus leader Valerie Parkinson, this expedition allows you to experience the Everest only ever seen by those who dare to venture further than the comfort of Everest Base Camp; and the rewards are enormous. As you climb into thinner air you will pass the towering glacier pinnacles and twisted weathered snow and ice formations of the famous Magic Highway that leads to Camp 1 and 2, and then to Advanced Base Camp at 6,400m. After a number of further days rest and acclimatisation we will finally follow in the ill-fated footsteps of explorers Mallory and Irvine and set off for the ascent to the North Col of Everest (7,066m).

Follow the footsteps of pioneering explorers towards the North Col of Mount Everest

breakfast only included in Kathmandu, outside Kathmandu all meals are included.
With the exception of summit day this expedition is a trek, although the remoteness and altitude make it a serious and difficult undertaking. The North Col is higher than anything outside Asia and a Tough challenge for all but the most experienced mountaineer, to join the expedition you need previous remote, high altitude trekking experience and to be comfortable using ice axe, crampons and a jumar and abseil device. Summit day is a strenuous climb with one short near-vertical ice section which may involve the use of ladders. The environment is challenging with extreme altitude and high winds that are common in this part of Tibet. The itinerary is planned to allow plenty of acclimatisation, however the extreme altitude may be a problem for slow acclimatisers. You need to have previous experience of altitudes over 5,000m and be reasonable confident you can acclimatise in the time available. You also need to have technical mountaineering experience, be competent using ice axe, walking in plastic boots with crampons and in using a fixed ropes to ascend and descend. Maybe you have climbed Mont Blanc, Mera or Island Peak or similar 6,000m peaks and now you want a greater challenge? If you have not done any such mountaineering before, a Scottish Winter Course or an Alpine course would be a good starting point. On booking you will be sent a form to fill in outlining your previous experience. Exodus maintains the right not to accept a booking if previous experience cannot be demonstrated.
