What Makes Our Hiking & Trekking Tours Unique?

MTS founded the concept of small group hiking and trekking in the Himalaya in 1969. Since then, many have tried to match the creativity of our itineraries, our flawless track record for summitting success, the expertise of our MT Sobek exclusive guides, our award-winning customer service, and reputation as the experts in trekking.

World’s Best Treks. Explore the Alps, the hiker’s playground of Europe, and consider the classic circuit of Mont Blanc. Take on one of the world’s ten best treks deep within the granite spires of Chile and Argentina’s Patagonia region. Walk the idyllic literary countryside of England with a long-treasured walk from one coast to another—a full 190 miles (and another of the world’s top ten hikes). Or summit a really big mountain like Kilimanjaro for the feat of a lifetime.

We’ll Challenge and Support You. We understand the transformative power of a long journey on foot, and we’ll do everything we can to make your adventure exciting and safe. Before your trip, we conduct a medical interview with you to make sure you are in proper health for you chosen trip. We’ll advise how you should train and specify a detailed packing list with all the gear you’ll need. Our guides, most of whom have been working us for over a decade, know how to pace groups so no one falls behind.

High Altitude Trekking Experts. When it comes to big peaks like Kili, we have the highest success rate of any company. Our guides have led MT Sobek groups in these mountain regions for decades, so you’re sure to reach those 18,000-foot Himalayan peaks and successfully summit Kilimanjaro.
