Adventure Consultants has worked with several individuals and groups to set up charity climbs throughout the world, from climbs on Kilimanjaro to treks to Everest Base Camp and summits of the big mountains. Our extensive networks and willingness to create exciting customised programs means Adventure Consultants can work with you to put together a charity climb or trek that meets your needs from conception through to the climb.
You can select one of our recommended treks or climbs below, or come to us with your own objectives and we will provide customised planning and logistics so you can focus on what is important and that is the fundraising itself. In addition to our standard trip inclusions we have a number of optional add-ons including:
- Luxury tenting and lodge options
- Safari add-on for Africa based trips
- Filming and photo services
- Daily data-links
- Everest specialist guide services.

Some charity climbs:
Australian Rebecca Heah has teamed with fellow climbers, Gary Lewis, Alexander Jury, Trent Thorne, also from Australia and American KyQuan Phong to create the Denali Five. The intrepid team climbed Alaska's 6,190m/20,308ft Denali and raised over $8,000 for mental health organisation Beyond Blue in the process.
In May 2019 Alexander Pancoe completed the Explorer's Grand Slam - the Seven Summits and the two geographic poles. All the while raising money for the paediatric neurology program at Lurie Children's, the hospital that gave him the ultimate gift of 'peace of mind' in 2005. Alex raised close to half a million dollars for his chosen charity.
Summit for Children is a charity campaign created to raise awareness of the ever-increasing incidence of child abuse in modern day society. Delfino Di Mascio believes that we have the ability and power to assist those affected by fostering change, and is raising money for children's charity by climbing the Seven Summits.
In September 2014 an Australian team of four climbers mounted an assault on the summit of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe. Their climb was designed to symbolise the hidden mountains that those with a brain injury and their carers and families must climb each day.
Recommended Charity Options:
Watch the sunrise from the highest point in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro! A long hike on summit day but so achievable for people who have not climbed before who have a reasonable standard of fitness. We can cater for groups of up to 15 people with luxury options available such as heated tents, walk-in private sleeping tents with cot beds, showers, private toilets etc...
Dates: Departures available throughout the year.
Lenana Peak Trek, Kenya
Ascend the summit of Lenana Peak on Africa's second highest mountain, Mount Kenya, via a trekking route. Ideal for people who stay active and enjoy walking in the mountains. Appropriate for people who have not climbed before and easier than Kilimanjaro, but a little more remote and wild.
