We would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.   It's been a fantastic 12 months and we are really looking forward to seeing you all in 2014 and joining us in our Special 30th Anniversary year.  PS... There's still time to escape this Christmas or plan ahead and book a Christmas-with-a-difference for 2014!

It's Snow Time!
Ski touring the Jura

From the Jura to the Arctic

 

You know our holidays are different and that we like to escape the crowds, so you can expect our winter holidays to take you to the parts that other tourists don't reach! From the lesser-known regions of the western and eastern Alps to the wilderness regions of the Antarctic, Finland, Greenland and Iceland you can be sure of a winter holiday with a difference with KE.  Interest in our NEW Grand Traverse of the Jura Ski Tour has been overwhelming so you will have to move fast to confirm a place on our January departure. For snowshoe lovers our brand NEW Snowshoe Traverse of the Chablais will take you to hidden valleys under pristine snow conditions and for an ultimate wilderness experience our NEW Snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies and Yellowstone, unique to KE, is simply awesome!

Winter Cycling Hotspots
Sunshine cycling this winter

Keep the wheels turning this winter

 

Keep your motivation high during winter and be ahead of the pack come spring. A week's road cycling in the sun on our NEW Cheeky Cols of the Costa Blanca or our popular Tour of Gran Canaria will do wonders for your performance or take it easy on two wheels and try our NEW Chiang Mai to Bangkok cycling holiday or Cycling Tour of Rajasthan. Our holidays are vehicle supported so anytime you or your bike breaks down, we're there to pick you up! 

  

If you're used to riding out with your local club or friends, why not head out to warmer climes and organise one of our Biking holidays as a private group departure on dates to suit you.  We can even arrange extra rest days, additional climbs and descents or more cake stops to suit your riders.

Complete Corsica
The full GR20 Corsica

Walk the entire GR20

Unlike our competitors, we don't deviate from this classic coast to coast walking route, which has been defined as one of the finest and hardest mountain walking routes in the whole of Europe.  We're taking a new angle for 2014 and walking the complete GR20 from North to South, which will mean more access to bags and no increase to price.

 

Also new for 2014 is our Tour of Corsica Road Cycling holiday.  Join KE Director, Glenn Rowley, as he leads the first of our new departures in May... and make the most of flights being under 100 from the UK! With spectacular coastlines, stunning mountains, beautiful forests and sleepy villages this new KE biking trip has it all. We've even thrown in a few 2013 Tour de France Cols and some cheese and wine too!

Juniper Trust Update
Juniper Trust

School Teacher Funding

Khane Primary School is based in the Hushe Valley region of Baltistan in Northern Pakistan. Located in the remote village of Khane, the school was built to offer an education to the children of this isolated mountain region. At the start of 2013, The Juniper Trust provided 2000 to cover two teacher salaries for the first year.  In 2014, the teacher's salaries will be jointly funded by the Juniper Trust and two long standing supporters, Andy and Clare, who originally brought the project to the Juniper Trust's attention. Further funds are needed as so far 1000 has been raised to cover the salaries of both teachers for the first 6 months but an additional 1000 is needed to cover the salaries for the second half of the year.
