Trek through ever-changing landscapes, climb to the top of dunes, soak up the stunning Sahara sunrise & sleep under the stars to help young people with early onset dementia.
Experience the largest hot desert on the planet
In a long weekend you'll be transported to another world and complete one of the most stunning challenges on the planet with vistas as far as the eye can see and the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as the backdrop.
You'll be mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings, have the opportunity to witness the sun rising over the astonishing Chigaga dunes and delve into the culture of a nomad's camp.
Everyone will have the desire to push themselves for this important cause.
Soloists can be put in touch with fellow participants before departure and the amazing camaraderie on the challenge means you'll soon make lifelong friendships with people who love a challenge and share your empathy for the cause - so don't worry if you're on your own.
This is a 'challenging' trek and you will need a reasonable level of fitness to take part. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience.

Helping young people with early-onset dementia adapt and live life
YoungDementia UK provides support, information and connections to the tens of thousands of young people affected by this challenging condition every year.
Younger people diagnosed with dementia experience similar symptoms to older people but the impact on their active lives is significantly different as they are likely to still be working with finanical commitments such as a mortgage and responsibilities including dependant children and even dependant parents.
