World Nomads love hiking

As passionate hikers ourselves, we’ve designed our plans to cover hiking from the most intrepid trek to a lazy weekend hike.  The more intrepid treks may require you to upgrade your cover before you leave home so make sure you check where you’re planning on going and what cover you will need… before you start.

  • Inca Trail - Peru
  • Kilimanjaro - Tanzania
  • Routeburn Track – New Zealand
  • Camping, scrambling, tramping, backpacking and more (height elevation restrictions may apply)
  • Rock climbing and mountaineering (limits apply and you may need to upgrade your cover depending on your planned trek or hike)

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, or you can read more about hiking and trekking here.

*All plans are different and may require an upgrade to include trekking at certain altitudes. Conditions and exclusions apply. Read the policy wording carefully to choose the right plan and/or adventure sport option for your trip.
