Peak Season Fall in Nepal
Trekking in Nepal - Reduced flight costs

Prices drop by 150

Fantastic news, the excellent Qatar Airways has just announced a nice juicy reduction in their air fares to Kathmandu in the peak spring and autumn seasons. After years of price rises it's almost too good to be true. With our flight inclusive price for Nepal trips down by up to 150 and with flights from both London and Manchester, this could be just the nudge you needed to visit this beautiful and dramatic country. Nepal has long been the jewel in the crown of the Himalayas and it promises so much with its amazingly friendly people and dramatic landscapes. The hardest thing is getting there, so this is a golden opportunity.

Free tickets for Karen Darke at KMF

Karen Darke is a paraplegic and has been since she was 21. Luckily she was born with an adventurous gene and has not only managed to overcome huge physical and mental barriers but has taken on some challenges that would make the rest of us mere mortals shake in our boots. She's crossed the Tien Shan and Karakoram on a hand bike, sea kayaked the Canadian-Alaskan coastline, skied the Vallee Blanche on a sit ski. Oh, yes and she won a Silver at the London Paralympics in 2012. If you want to know more about this amazing lady this is your chance to win 2 tickets to see her at the Keswick Mountain Festival.

Somewhere over the Rainbow
South Africa Adventure Holidays

Is a magical place called South Africa

South Africa is known as the 'Rainbow Nation' with its colourful mix of people and great geographical variety. With David Attenborough doing another breath-taking BBC production focusing on this amazing continent and with some special offers on hand, we thought this was a good time to put this hidden gem back in the spotlight.


We have 8 holidays in South Africa and the flight costs have just been reduced making it more affordable than ever. Our Cape Town and Garden Route is a brand new 11 day discovery holiday along Africa's southern tip including a good dose of wildlife, walks and wine - this is now 100 cheaper thanks to the airlines. Or if you want a great trekking holiday, our 8 day  Cape of Good Hope hike will take you from Table Mountain to Cape Point with a magical mix of coastal and mountain landscape.

Fed Up with Wrapping Up? 
Cycling Holidays in Gran Canaria with KE Adventure Travel

Follow Team Saxo Bank, take a cycling break in the SUN.

We think there is no where better for an escape than Gran Canaria. Perpetual sunshine, breath-takingly diverse scenery and superb quality roads make cycling here such an irresistible experience. Alberto Contador and the Saxo Bank obviously agree as they spent January training here. Our Tour of Gran Canaria is more than a training camp, it is a superb journey that makes a circuit of this mountainous island. Search out your shorts, there are still a few places left on our March and April departures.


Other classic cycling journeys this spring include, Tour of Toubkal in Morocco, Dead 2 Red in Jordan, Bangkok to Phuket in Thailand and Vic Falls to Cape Town across Africa. Perfect training for a summer of sportives.
