The driving force behind EverTrek is the desire to help as many people as possible achieve their goals and life-long dreams, whether that’s to stand at the foot of the mighty Everest, atop the summit of Kilimanjaro or both & more!
We believe that everyone should be able to experience the awesome sense of achievement as they embrace challenging treks and experience amazing destinations & cultures around the world.
One of the ways in which we do this is our much-celebrated competitions.
Our EverTrek competitions give you the opportunity to follow the footsteps of renowned explorers like Sir Edmund Hillary or George Mallory and go on a trek for FREE.
Some of you may be thinking that it’s too good to be true, in fact the most frequent of questions is “is this for real?!”
YES, it’s completely true and we have numerous previous winners who will vouch, with much enthusiasm and elated-shock, that it’s an incredible prize to win!
Other than the validity of this amazing opportunity, we’re often asked a number of other questions about the competition and so we’ve put together this list of ‘Competition FAQs’:
EverTrek Competition FAQs
How do I enter?
It takes only seconds to register in this giveaway, simply follow this link and fill out your name & email address - boom you're in!
What exactly am I winning?
The winner will win a trip to Machu Picchu via the Tomacaya route - 'The Hidden Valley Trek' for both them and a person of their choosing. You can find full details of the trip on our website HERE. On this page you can download our useful trek guide, view available dates and if you scroll down below the list of dates, you will find a daily itinerary and information on everything that is included in the trip price / prize value.
Who can enter?
The competition is open to residents of any country aged 18 years or over.
When does the competition end?
What is Viral Loops?
If you’ve followed the link to register for a competition, you may have taken a second glance at the link and thought “What is Viral Loops?”. This is the software that we use to track your entries, it’s not harmful and has nothing to do with viruses! This software allows us to keep track of both who has entered and the number of times they’ve shared the link. This is important as each share generates an additional entry, meaning the more you share - the more times your name could come up in the draw.
What date is the free trek?
It’s completely up to you! You get to pick your preferred available date just the same as you would if you were booking a trip normally. Should your name be announced we will be in touch to talk about the next steps which involve you checking out the available dates on our website, and letting us know which one you would like to go on.
You can view the available dates for this trip on our website.
How can I increase my entries?
Once you've registered for the trek giveaway, you will be given a link that you can share on your socials to invite your friends to sign up too. This link has been generated specifically for you and every share will count as an additional entry into the hat.
You will also get double entries if one of your friends signs up via your link - so get sharing & best of luck!
Why does the counter that tracks entries not increase with shares?
This is a frequent question, as it appears to go against what we just said eh? Don’t worry - the counter that you will see on the Viral Loops page, following registration, tracks the number of people who sign up using the link that you’ve shared. This again counts towards your entries. Although it’s not displayed on your screen, we do track the number of shares in total at the ‘back end’.
Are flights included?
Our packages cover everything you could need on the trek itself, from airport transfers, accommodation, meals & filtered water, expert guides, and more - it's a long list! You can find the full details on the trek page - scroll to the bottom beneath available dates to find more information.
We don't include international flights in any of our trekking packages as we find that it's a benefit to trekkers to be able to arrange their own flights that suit them. (This is due to many factors from flight costs being cheaper by booking direct with an airline rather than package deal prices, to having the flexibility of being able to choose your own arrival/departure dates if you want to spend longer in the country.) This means that the free trek you can win in our competition won't include flights, but as soon as you land at the airport our friendly team will be there to welcome you. The Yetis at EverTrek are always on hand to help with your trek preparations, so when it comes to booking flights we are here to help with any queries you may have - from average costs, to dates & times, no question is too small!
If you are that excited about this trip that you're already thinking about your flights, take a look at this helpful article which talks about flights & travel for this Machu Picchu trek.
If I don't have Facebook will I still be notified?
We always announce the winner live on Facebook, but if you’re not able to tune in or do not use social media, that’s no problem. We also contact our winners directly through email and phone, if provided, so make sure your details are correct when you register.
Are there runner up prizes?
For the winner of the draw, having their name announced and being the winner of a free trip is an awesome feeling! However, there is only one winner, well, two if you include the friend, so we realise that this means that it might not be you. To avoid too much disappointment, there are runner up prizes available, so should your name not be drawn do check your emails following the prize draw. Info on these prizes are emailed to all runner ups, so again, make sure your details are correct when you register.
Can I use a runner up prize on a trip I've already booked?
If you've received a discount code you are welcome to use it on a new booking for any of our trips of a value over £1600. You are not able to use it on a trip that you have previously booked with us, but we would love to see you on another trip!
Can other friends book on to the same trip?
The prize is for you and one other to go on a trip for free, but that doesn’t mean that others aren’t welcome! As long as there is space in the group, you can invite as many people to join you as you like. Others won’t be as lucky to go free of charge, but to prevent them for being too jealous, they’re welcome to benefit from using a ‘runner up prize’ - meaning a discount on their booking.
We Love Our
Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say
If you have any questions about anything to do with the trip just phone, e-mail or message them off FB they always get back, the whole team are fantastic. The trip itself in March this year was utterly stunning my airline didn’t put my bag on my connecting flight from Doha(not their fault by the way) the Evertrek representative that met me at the airport was tremendous he took care of the whole thing, i think my bag was in Hotel Aloft within 12 hours. Our guides were astonishing Lama Sherpa, Ngodu Sherpa and Nema Sherpa deserve a special mention they were faultless their knowledge of the Himalayas and local culture was amazing. They couldn’t do enough for us always smiling, always in a good mood.
If you want to do a trekking trip, personally I wouldn’t try anyone else. I’ve had a look at others some don’t provide internal flights some won’t include breakfast, lunch and dinner some won’t include guides. With Evertrek you don’t have to worry about this stuff. You get your kit, flights, insurance etc etc, off you go. Awesome trip thank you Evertrek.
l can't emphasis enough the brilliance of been able to move a trip for free if circumstances dictate.
My trek from stepping from the plane was well planned and supported. The trek itself ( Annapurna Base Camp) was one of the best experiences ever. Our guides and porters were superb, knowledgeable and very accommodating - going over and above if anyone needed extra support.
The trip was life changing and I'm going back for more with team EverTrek

We happened to be stuck in Nepal for an additional 10 days due to the country going into lockdown and Evertrek worked tirelessly every single day to ensure not only were we in the loop with what was going on but also just to make sure we were comfortable, happy and OK!
They don't feel like your typical corporate company, the entire team is super friendly and make you feel like pals! Something quite important to me and they showed in every single way is that they truly care for all their staff, as soon as the Sherpas and guides lost pretty much all work for this season they set up a justgiving page to help support their families! They doing everything with love and care both for their customers and their team!!
Ok, I could go on! Bottom line is, if you are looking for some trekking adventures, look no further. Just go and book it, you will not regret it!
Thank you for reminding me why I love travelling and trekking so much, now you have awoken it I have lots of planning to do for 2021 hehe!! ❤️
They were fantastic and went out their way to support me when I was stuck in Nepal due to the Coronavirus lockdown
I would highly recommend this company to any trekkers looking for a travel company.
I will definitely be using this company again in the future.
Nothing was to much for the guys in the UK or Kathmandu, if you are thinking about this trip there is only one company to consider EVERTREK 110%
It's only taken 30 years to to finally realize this dream!
The contact has been brilliant with the EverTrek team!
Now to get into training!
Having little things like filtered water and meals included in the cost (I saw another group having to queue to pay for breakfast) might seem trivial but it meant we didn't have to worry about running out of money on the trek - and they treat their guides and sherpas (who were top class and couldn't do enough for you) with consideration and respect.
I always felt well looked after throughout my time in Nepal, and they put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the holiday went smoothly such as rearranging flights, and adapted to any issues that arose.
Evertrek made it a great holiday. I met some fun people, have some great memories and lots of photos! You even get a free bag, medal and certificate!
team, guides, sherpas, porters and yak men in Nepal I cant fault Evertrek. If you are thinking about a trip just do it. You wont regret it. And you wont regret choosing Evertrek either. I'm already looking at other trips and not even home yet!
I’ve just returned from a fantastic training weekend with them in the Brecon Beacons. It was wet and windy but Evertrek didn’t disappoint, . From start to finish, the experience was great. Both Andy( the owner) and his trusty sidekick Dave (the painted Yeti) were there to make us feel welcome. They were both hands on, and their knowledge was second to none.
I can’t wait to actually go to Everest, and after this weekend I feel assured that I’ll be in great hands.
Nothing was too much trouble, and it was great see the way that Andy and Dave talk about Everest with such a passion.
Well done guys
Our guide in Nepal, Bhim and his team, were absolutely fantastic, they worked unbelievably hard, you never wanted for anything. (Watch them, they cheat at cards!!haha)
As for the trek, the negotiations of getting to Lukla were a bit up in the air...but that's just Nepal! Go with the flow. But once we got there, it was absolutely brilliant, everyday the scenery was beautiful and I never felt like they expected to much from you. Plenty of rest time and tea stops! I personally really enjoyed the food (I lived on veggi curry and rice-you get seconds :D) and thought all the accommodation was fine!!
Basically an all round incredible trip, there wasn't a second I didn't enjoy!!! Highly recommend Andy and the team. Would defo do another trek with them 😀
Many thanks to everyone at EverTrek, especially Andy - from start to finish the organisation was par excellence. Special thanks to Rishi our guide and my trekking companions who put the icing on the cake to make one of my dreams come true.
We made some great connections, enjoyed the socialising (you earn it!) and came away even more excited to be getting on the plane to Nepal. Hopefully there will be more such events to enjoy, and build on the training already done. I’m already walking the dogs for 10mins more🙂.
Thanks to Andy and the team for a great weekend. Good luck to those on their way in the next few months, and those who have a longer wait we can share your excitement.
Hotel, guides & transfers in Kathmandu were spot on.
Biggest credit has to go to the guide & sherpa who take care of you every step of the way.
Thank you Evertrek
But it's the people that made the trek. Our guide Kishor is a wonderful guy. A real fixer, high altitude expert, family man and now, friend. When the weather delayed our flight, he did everything he could to make sure we were first onto another. His experience, knowledge and local contacts got us into places we just wouldn't have seen without him. He knew when to go to the best places to avoid the crowds and he was the picture of happiness with his infectious smile. He was kind to the point of putting us first all the time, without hesitation. A true gentlemen and the source of lots of fun and laughter - perfect for morale. Our porters also deserve a mention for their hard work and dedication through some difficult long days at high altitude. Manesh was particularly hard working and charming, keen to learn and become a guide himself in time. Our trek wouldn't have been the same without them and when I go again I will definitely seek out the same team.
My recommendation? Grab a loved one and go trekking in Nepal in the capable hands of the Evertrek team. And request Kishor to be your guide. You won't regret it.
Amazing service from Andy and Dave in helping me plan the most amazing,unique,epic,challenging,tough,
rewarding and memorable experiences...with stunning unspoilt views and a different pace of life.
They provided me with friendly, knowledgeable,caring guides. I really couldn't have asked for a better trek.
Highly recommend and will use again.
Just wanted to say a huge thanks to all at Bucket List, both here and in Nepal, for making my trip to EBC, Cho La and Gokyo so enjoyable and memorable. Himal, my guide, was a star and I enjoyed his company throughout the two plus weeks we were together; he looked after me really well and I have no doubt that his local knowledge helped to smooth the way on a few occasions when accommodation was tight! If my wife can be persuaded to let me go again, you will be my first port of call.
