Mountains of Adventure

The best places to trek during January and February

Kick off 2020 with a bang and challenge yourself on an unforgettable trek, hike or exploratory expedition. Lace up your boots and join one of the world's most iconic treks and walks, or, if you really want to avoid the crowds, challenge yourself to venture even further along remote trails that will take you to experience stunning alpine landscapes that few others ever will.

WHERE AND WHY DURING JANUARY AND FEBRUARY?

  • Patagonia: Patagonia has a small window of walking opportunity and due to the more stable weather and slightly warmer days, January is a popular choice for many trekkers, so it pays to book your trip well in advance. 
  • Tasmania: Another popular deep south walking destination offering more stable weather during January. It's been known to snow during December however January historically is much warmer, and provides very pleasant walking conditions.
  • Nepal: The Annapurna and Everest regions are graced with clear, blue skies due to the colder days. Thanks to our eco-camps, which provide heated dining tents and comfortable, warm raised beds, you'll sleep more comfortably after a day of trekking during a time when the trails are not as busy.
  • Kilimanjaro: It is the warmest time of year where there is the lowest chance of clouds, which could reward you with unobstructed vistas from above.
  • Aconcagua, Argentina: It's the ideal time of year to climb the southern hemisphere's highest mountain.

Whether you're after the all-time classic hiking destinations or opting for something new and more remote, we have a cornucopia of fully-supported and all inclusive adventures for all levels of fitness and abilities. Scroll below to spark your wanderlust across five continents and do things others only dream about.
