The world is vast beyond measure. And in it, sights more majestic and untamed than any words can tell. Where words fail, experience speaks. If you’ve ever dreamed of going into the wild, into the high places far from the noise of civilization to see beauty for yourself, GoTrek will take you there.
We specialize in two styles of trips, which each offer different challenges and features to best accommodate our client’s desires and capacities:
- Treks – Non-technical hikes that do not require any specialized equipment but demand solid physical condition.
- Climbs – Trips that typically require previous high-altitude experience and a knowledge of specialized equipment like crampons, rope travel, ice axes, and carabiners.
We’ve led clients in ascents of some of the most difficult peaks on Earth, and we’ve also helped make alpine routes accessible to enthusiastic newcomers to mountaineering. We love working with climbers at any level, and create satisfying trips for everyone from experts to eager novices.
Go Trek prides itself in helping foster not only an unforgettable outdoor adventure, but also a memorable cultural experience. We believe that part of really knowing a mountain is knowing its history and culture, not just its terrain. We carefully select guides who are not only masters of climbing safety with many years of experience in the field, but who are also native to their respective countries. Our guides are happy to share their local knowledge in ways that are helpful, meaningful, and lasting.
