There are a range of fantastic walks, treks and challenges taking place all over the world in some incredible locations. The Vietnam to Cambodia cycle challenge is just one example. This 11 day trip will take you from Ho Chi Minh City all the way to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, featuring breathtaking scenery along the way.

Tanzania, on the eastern side of the African continent, is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, which at 5,895m is Africa's highest and the world's highest free-standing mountain. This demanding yet rewarding trek takes seven days and covers dense rainforest, moorland and scree. Not one for the faint-hearted, but you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the African plains as you make your way to the summit.
