Inspired Adventures has teamed up with Peregrine to offer an opportunity to experience fascinating Eastern culture on an incredible adventure while helping provide vital funds to support Heart Disease Research along the way! Spend five days trekking along the border of China and Mongolia, on remote and thus seldom-visited sections of the Great Wall, staying overnight in local guesthouses. Before and after the trek spend time discovering the sights of Beijing and the Eastern Qing Tombs.
All our trips get among landscapes that fascinate and capture the imagination. Some destinations, however, are just that little bit special in their ability to offer up the unexpected, where natural elements, and sometimes the hand of man, have worked overtime to create something that captivates because of its otherness. One we’ve recently added to our trips is Darvaza Crater in Turkmenistan, a mind-boggling open furnace in the middle of nowhere. Here’s Darvaza and a few of our other favourites.
Peregrine supports a small village at Sentab in the Nurata Mountains by using village homestays. Having received United Nations Development Program support to set up the project, the community now plays host to all Peregrine travellers to Uzbekistan. This partnership provides valuable income for this isolated community and ensures a wonderful, unique experience for our clients.
Central Asia now seems at the distant periphery of the world, but at one time it was the centre of culture and contemporary thought. Discover the blue domes and mosaics of Silk Road architecture. Bargain amongst the locals in vast and varied bazaars. Trek and ride horses through mountain forest reserves. Camp by a desert crater licked by the ‘flames of hell’. Take lunch on a daybed in the shade of a walnut grove.
Mongolia is one steppe beyond – a place where myth and reality collide. On our three new magnificent Mongolian trips you’ll get so far off the beaten track there’s no track at all...
Whether you’re exploring unsullied wildernesses, getting among beautiful landscapes or spending time with remote communities, trekking unlocks destinations in a unique way, making walkers truly a part of a place, and helping give a rich appreciation of both local cultures and scenery.
Peregrine started in Nepal, and we started on foot. Three decades on, our trekking trips explore some of the world’s great wild places. We asked our trekking expert Lou Day to give us a run through some of her top trips on foot.
Continuing with the theme of ‘new stuff’ (our website has got a swanky new look,in case you were wondering where the theme comes from), we thought we’d have a run-through some of our favourite destinations that are among the newer ones on our trips.
We hope that you will enjoy the new look and feel of our website, we are certainly very proud of it and have tried to include as much stunning imagery and video footage as possible to inspire your travels. We have also added a number of features which will make finding your perfect Peregrine trip even easier! Look out for some helpful tips over the coming few editions of the e-news. Here are a few to start off with:
