Approx 4 Hours: Have you ever dreamed about celebrating a start of the new day on the very top of the paradise Madeira island? Just allow yourself to dream and we will make this fantastic experience real! We’ll start our walk still in the dark and we’ll be walking up for 2.5 kilometers, admiring the magnificent night sky, with billions of stars just above our heads. After ~1.5 hour we’ll reach Ruivo Peak, the highest point of the island, and there, being at the highest point for hundreds of kilometers away, we will meet the new day, inspired and motivated to reach any further goals you have.

Private Cinque Terre Trekking Tours

Approx 8 Hours: Explore ancient seaside villages along the Italian Riviera's rugged coastline on this private Cinque Terre trekking tour. Stroll among the vineyards as you explore centuries-old settlements including Riomaggiore, Groppo, Manarola and Vernazza with your private guide. Hear of the villages' history and winegrowing heritage, and discover top attractions along the way such as the Via dell'Amore and the 14th-century church of Our Lady of Health in Volastra. Enjoy panoramic views over the Italian coastline as the azure-blue waters of the Ligurian Sea sparkle in the distance.

Hike Table Mountain.

Approx. 6 Hours: Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the tour guide would like to share spectacular beauty and the rich history with you. The guide knows the mountain trails, the best spots for photographs, birds, Fynbos and breathtaking views. The goal is to provide you with a safe and enjoyable experience. Lion's Head Route is included in the hike. The tour can be customized to take you on day tours on and off the mountains. Itineraries are flexible and various options are available.

Guided hike to Pulpit Rock Preikestolen

Approx. 9 Hours: Western Norway’s Pulpit Rock is a towering cliff-plateau directly suspended over the Lysefjorden. Hikers flock here to dangle over the precipice and photograph the meandering blue fjord. This guided hike leaves from Stavanger brings you safely to the edge of the rock to take in the view. You have time at the top to take pictures, relax, and eat lunch or a snack.
