Day 1


by Tina the Travel Agent

I may look very comfy sitting behind my desk, but sometimes this mild-mannered travel agent has to hang up her high-heels, grab her hiking boots and push herself to the absolute limit.

Which explains why I found myself trekking up to Everest Base Camp with G Adventures last month. It’s an audacious vacation option, to say the least, but it’s all in a day’s work for this plucky purveyor of adventurous travel experiences.

Known as ‘the steps to heaven,’ the trek to the Base Camp of Everest—the highest mountain on Earth above sea level—is undeniably one of the most challenging trips you or your clients can have on your bucket lists. But it’s a life-changing journey that’s worth every single step… and every single drop of sweat.

Each bend of this epic trail provides a stunning photo opportunity -- be it a beautiful forest, a quaint Sherpa village or a glacial moraine -- and at the end of the trek you feel like you’re at the top of the world. Which you almost are…

Tina ready to go

All packed and ready to go!

Everest is a special trip that requires special planning, so I decided to travel with G Adventures on its 15-day Everest Base Camp Trek. Why G Adventures you ask? Well, there’s nothing the specialists at G don’t know about adventure travel, so when it comes to planning a trip as legendary as this one, their knowledge and expertise is invaluable.

Add to that the company’s 100-percent-guaranteed departures, its support of the communities it operates in, and its focus on friendly small group travel, and you’ll understand why G Adventures is a big favourite with adventure travellers from across the globe.

Meanwhile back at the G Adventures offices, Nina Slawek speaks with Denise Harper, Director of Sales, and Aizaz Sheikh, Director of Marketing, Canada.

Join Tina tomorrow when she shares her Everest Base Camp ‘Know Before You Go’ guide.
