In association with British Heart Foundation

If you’re looking for a new challenge this year, how about taking part in an overseas adventure with British Heart Foundation? The charity offers a number of incredible worldwide treks and bike rides, with fundraising opportunities that help the charity power lifesaving research and raise funds to conquer heart disease.

Choosing which trip to take is often the hardest part. Summiting Kilimanjaro at sunrise remains one of Africa’s most magnificent and unforgettable experiences of a lifetime, and is just one of the treks you can be involved in with the charity.

Machu Picchu in Peru is another bucket list destination. With British Heart Foundation you can follow in the ancient paths of the Incas along the Lares Trail, an off the beaten track alternative to the classic Inca Trail, which culminates in a spectacular view of one of the world’s most fascinating and important archaeological finds.

Or how about the Great Wall of China, a spectacular wonder of the world, steeped in over 2,000 years of history, mythology and ancient traditions. Other options include a trek in Burma (Myanmar) – one of the last unexplored countries in South East Asia. Here you can hike through mountainous tribal villages and stay in Buddhist monasteries, a fantastic chance to absorb yourself in the ancient traditions of the people.

On the British Heart Foundation website you’ll find overseas challenges to cover every corner of the world – searching out orangutans in the jungles of Borneo, seeing the endangered mountain gorilla in Uganda, or cycling across Tanzania where you will have the chance to stay with a Maasai tribe en route.

All British Heart Foundation trips offer a once in lifetime opportunity to help power life-saving research. Right now, it’s possible to save £100 on a range of inspiring BHF challenges. Offer ends 31st January 2015.
