    5 reasons why climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for New Years Eve is the best idea in the world!

    Izy Bryan

    Hold that Google search! Here's the best New Years Eve idea for 2017. 

    It's famous for being the highest free- standing mountain in the world at 5,896m - so why climb Kilimanjaro at New Year?

    Well why not! Yes the Christmas period is lovely time to spend at home, but its also hectic and you always end up eating and drinking far too much, family relations break down as tensions grow higher and, well, it all can get a little overwhelming by New Years Eve. So why not escape reality and figure out what you want to gain from the coming year, experience something completely different and perhaps a little outside of your comfort zone and start the new year the way you want it to continue.

    Stephanie Morris

    Vic is one of our most charismatic leaders! Having lead many of our overseas trek challenges you'll find that there's nothing he doesn't know about climbing Kilimanjaro or trekking to Base Camp. There's a good chance that he'll be guiding your next Challenge so with that in mind, we wanted to know a little bit more about what he thinks of our DA Challenge portfolio, so we found out...

    • His all time favourite DA Challenge (because that's a recommendation in itself!)
    • The passport stamp he'd most like to have (would you agree?)
    • His top tip for adventure challenges (a bit of leader wisdom never goes amiss!)
    • And something we might not know...
