Adventure Challenges

One great way to raise much needed funds for Support in Mind Scotland is to take on an adventure challenge. We have teamed up with 2 great travel providers:
Really Wild Challenges and Different Travel both have a range of challenges you might want to go for! You might want to join a group and meet new friends or you might want to get your own group together, the choice is yours.

When people think of challenges they think of the ‘biggies’ such as Kilimanjaro and Everest base camp but both providers have a whole range of events which are closer to home and suited to all abilities.

Have a look at what is available and get touch- have a life changing adventure!

Examples include:

Everest Base Camp Charity Challenge: The Everest Base Camp trek is probably one of the most famous in the world, and one that every keen trekker should consider doing at some point in their lives.It is without doubt one of the more challenging treks to take on, but the sheer thrill and sense of achievement you experience as you arrive at the Base Camp is hard to equal.

Kilimanjaro Charity Challenge: Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing Kilimanjaro is a truly great challenge. Rising majestically from the Savannah lands of northern Tanzania, Kilimanjaro soars to a 5,895m high peak. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. The feeling you get as you climb Kilimanjaro and watch the sun rise over the vast African plains and distant volcanic peaks is truly an incredible experience.

Santiago de Compostela Trek: Relaxed, vibrant, warm and friendly; Spain's Mediterranean charms are endless. With stunning Islamic architecture and featuring the second highest number of UNESCO World Heritage sites in the world, culture buffs will love to visit. For those who love the countryside, Andalucia features some stunning mountainous regions which will take your breath away.
