    Moderate

    This is the perfect challenge for someone who has perhaps never taken on a challenge event before, and is looking to test themselves on an active physical challenge. Although a moderate challenge might be culturally challenging, it will usually be in hotels/lodges rather than camping, and there will be no altitude involved. Training is necessary for all challenges. On a UK 'moderate' challenge, this grading would be perfect for someone who is looking to take their first steps into walking in the UK.

    Challenging

    A 'challenging' trip will test someone who is moderately fit and has a spirit of adventure. You may have had some previous experience, but this is not necessary as long as the correct training is undertaken. A 'challenging' trip may involve some altitude, but this will be compensated by easier terrain and hiking conditions. On a UK 'challenging' challenge, you will be physically tested but the terrain is often on well-established routes.

  • Tough
    ?

    Tough

    A 'tough' trip should be undertaken by someone with previous experience and interest in the activity – whether biking or trekking. It will usually involve camping, and will certainly be in a remote environment, where facilities are not what you would expect at home. A tough challenge will test you both physically and mentally. Both cycle and treks will be hilly, and training is essential. On a UK 'tough' challenge, you should expect 10+ hours of exertion over demanding terrain.

  • Extreme
    ?

    Extreme

    Extreme challenges will involve altitude, and a great deal of endurance. These trips are not to be taken lightly, and will take place in extreme environments, without home comforts. They are usually undertaken by someone with previous experience in a mountain setting, but who wants to take their experience to the next level physically and mentally. Training is essential. On a UK 'extreme' challenge you should have previous experience in the mountains of the UK, as you will be tested to the limits.

Brazilian Trek and Kayak Challenge

Brazil needs no introduction. Its 8.5 million square kms are home to fantastic landscapes and immense cultural diversity. Our challenge takes us beyond the beach and into tropical forest and Serra da Bocaina National Park. Once we’ve conquered the trekking challenge, it’s into our sea kayaks to paddle between the Bay of Paraty and Saco do Mamangua. The Bay is dotted with more than 60 islands, as well as some 300 picture perfect beaches which will provide our accommodation at night. Once the hard work is over, we head to the party city of Rio to soak up the sun and the sights, including Christ the Redeemer.

Zambezi  River Charity Challenge in Zambia

Zambezi River Challenge

Known locally as Great River, the Zambezi flows for 2,700kms through six countries on its path from Zambia to the Indian Ocean. This unique and exhilarating challenge will take in Victoria Falls, unforgiving rapids and the likes of hippos and crocodiles. Expect a rough ride, with sweltering heat, humidity, blistered hands and harsh conditions providing some of the obstacles along the way. The team will paddle in both mokoros (traditional dug out wooden canoes) and inflatable kayaks for 100kms of the river. The river’s upper section is dotted with islands and braided with narrow fast flowing channels. You will paddle your way along the border with Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe, steadily heading towards the Falls. Ultimately, the climax comes with the daunting prospect of rafting below the Falls in the notorious Batoka Gorge, the most tempestuous white water rapids in the world.
