Venture 2 Adventures
Your adventure Starts Here
Dear Friends and Trekkers
First of all I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and you are looking forward to joining venture2adventures.com in 2022 for adventures in the hills and mountains at home and overseas.
As we all know Covid 19 has had a huge impact on foreign travel especially with ourselves...our trips to Kenya 🇰🇪 Tanzania 🇹🇿 Uganda 🇺🇬 Morocco 🇲🇦 Nepal 🇳🇵 Bhutan 🇧🇹 and India 🇮🇳 but things are looking up and although covid is still very real countries are starting to open up to tourism again.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have booked your trips with us and have stuck with us through this pandemi.c
To date of all our bookings from you our Clients have stayed with us.
We have only had one cancellation which was for personal health reasons and a couple of deferred dates.
Hopefully we are doing something right on our trips treks hikes and climbs 😊
Just a point to note that during the pandemic our guides porters and staff in the various countries we travel to have not worked...we are proud to the fact ..that those that needed it..we were in a position to help with food and a small amount of money in an ongoing basis till they started to work again..there is no social welfare in these countries.
June 2021 saw us back in the hills at home in Ireland as restrictions were lifted and we also took part in a few events such as the JFK50 Mile Challenge and the Moonlight Challenge...we also did Sponsored Hikes and climbs for Various Charities where we were leading Groups to Raise money for excellent causes..some of the Charities were Cork Penny Dinners..Cork Homeless..Whistle and of course our Own Charity.... CHILDAID...we took no fee or payment for these various groups.
If you would like to organise a Charity hike or climb please let us know..we would be happy to help..we don't charge..just a small donation to Childaid will be perfect 😊
Going forward into 2022 we will be advertising more hikes and climbs in Ireland 🇮🇪..we won't be charging for our services but we would ask that you make a small donation to Childaid and we guarantee a cracking day out in the hills and the fun and laughter are free 😅
We will be updating our website in the next couple of weeks venture2adventures.com and we will also be posting our Upcoming Adventures on Instagram FB twitter etc and of course our WhatsApp group.
Our overseas treks are now going ahead thankfully...our Kilimanjaro Climb for February is full as is our Mt Meru climb in March..we still have a couple of places for our Everest Basecamp Trek in April...we have reduced the maximum number of trekkers per trip with covid in mind...our next Kilimanjaro trip is 23 July 2022 ....we will also be posting dates of trips as places become available...we still have a lot of people booked and ready to travel.
All profits from our overseas trips will be donated to CHILDAID...we will also bring you to visit some of the projects that Childaid are involved in so you can see where the donations go to ...nothing like seeing it for yourself.
I have had a lot of enquiries over Christmas about joining us on various hikes and climbs so I have for your convenience attached the Trip Registration Form...if you require information or itineraries for our trips please let us know and we will send it out to you.
Anyone who has travelled with us before will tell you we have no hidden costs.
And of course the laughter is free 😊
Keep a look out on our social media for trip updates..we try to keep our email update to our mailing list to just 2 emails a year...if you wish to be removed please let me know and we won't bother you in future.
As yet we have to confirm a date but our First Irish Hike for 2022 will be in January and will be up Table Mountain in Wicklow..we have planned a loop Hike so we and up back at our cars...no charge..just to blow the cobwebs from Christmas 🎄 😀
If you need any more information on various trips etc let us know or if you would like us to help organise and lead a fundraising climb please let us know..we would be delighted to take part and help.
So for now I'd like to wish you and your families a very Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing you again soon on one of our Adventures!
