Discover Adventure New Year Challenges

Discover Adventure is encouraging people to make 2014 a year to remember by taking on an unforgettable trekking or cycling challenge. Celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, the specialist tour operator is offering even more new, unique and thrill-seeking itineraries than ever before.

Led by highly-experienced leaders, the trekking and cycling trips have been designed to challenge participants but are nevertheless appropriate for beginners who are prepared to train, with Discover Adventure offering thorough support, training plans and training days for all participants. Because the trips are challenging, participants are welcome to raise money for charity at the same time, too, if they wish, and useful tips on fundraising are available.

One new adventure is an exhilarating trekking expedition through Ladakh in North East India. Expect breathtaking views of Himalayan panoramas of snow-capped peaks, sweeping high-altitude plains dotted with ancient villages and even rare wildlife such as the elusive snow leopard. Participants will summit Stok Kangri, one of the ‘easiest’ 6000m peaks in the world because it does not require technical climbing experience – but it does require good physical fitness. Views of the sunrise following a night-time ascent of Stok Kangri (6153m) are truly magical. Departing 18 August and 8 September 2014, the trip costs from £2149 per person (based on two sharing) and includes 12 nights’ accommodation (six nights’ camping and six nights’ hotel), flights from London, transfers, most meals, camping equipment (except sleeping bag and sleeping mat), entry to sites listed in the itinerary and Discover Adventure support team.

Nearer home is a new Pyrenees coast-to-coast cycling trip with opportunities to watch the Tour de France 2014. Participants will cycle the mountains made famous by the Tour de France – and stop to witness this famous event as it passes over the Col de Portet d’Aspet on its first day in the Pyrenees. This cycling trip is a tough journey from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast, setting off from France’s most south-westerly town, Hendaye, and finishing at Argeles sur Mer in the south of France. There will be a well-earned rest on day six to see the world’s greatest cyclists take part in the Tour de France.  Departing 17 July 2014, the trip costs from £1574 per person (two sharing) and includes eight nights’ hotel accommodation, most meals, airport transfers and Discover Adventure support team. Flights are extra.

Other new options include a trek in the Chapada Diamantina National Park and visit to Salvador and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, a World War Two commemoration walking the Pyrenees Freedom Trail from France to Spain and a coast-to-coast cycle trip across the Sri Lankan Highlands.
