A true adventure in a remote landscape

Hike the Sahara desert in 2023: over five days trek 100km through one of the most forbidding landscapes on earth. As you traverse the peaks and gorges, you’ll discover that the only way to explore the Sahara’s landscape, people and wildlife is on your own two feet.

Experience breathtaking views from the top of Jebel Lamrakeb, discover the relief of a hidden oasis, and sleep under one of the clearest skies left on earth.

Will you join our team of brave explorers, all passionate about dementia research, ready to experience a brand new adventure?
