walking adventure.

Our Story

adventure of

Trek Epic is a small group, ten-day walking journey, typically in the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain and Italy. The cadence of walking eight to fourteen miles a day let’s everyone settle into just “being” in the moment. A true pilgrimage, these treks allow minds to meander in ways that are often difficult in our normally fast-paced world.

While on the trek, your guides will support you and your fellow trekkers in the process of adventure, reflection and self-discovery. You will have time to think about your talents and gifts, and explore how to apply them to your own personal, educational and professional goals.

A Journey of
inner and

Within the trek's lively embrace of fun and camaraderie, you will have the opportunity to support your fellow trekkers on their own journeys of inner and outer exploration.

Trekkers emerge from this unique adventure with more self-confidence, a renewed sense of purpose, and specific ideas about the next steps in their lives.

The experience of coming together with a group of strangers in a new country and exploring new terrain produces an unforgettable feeling of connectedness and trust. Having the opportunity to learn that “I am somebody” and “I belong” is a transformational experience unique to Trek Epic.

The core gift
and the
journey to
self discovery

The Core Gifts methodology draws upon ancient traditions, rites of passage, and wisdom tales to specifically identify each person’s talents and gifts.

Through a facilitated process of dialogue and sharing with other trekkers, the Core Gifts process is designed to lead Trek Epic participants to discover what unique skills and gifts each has to offer. This powerful process also assists trekkers in developing strategies for putting their unique gifts to work in the world.

Our treks are a catalyst for growth and self-discovery.
