Trek the Great Wall of China for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

In this once-in-a-lifetime epic nine-day trip, you will be hiking between four and eight hours a day, covering approximately 50kms over five days. You'll also get to experience China's bustling capital – including a visit to the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven.

Constructed to defend China against the nomadic tribes, the Great Wall is an exciting twisting challenge of ups and downs. Starting out four hours north of Beijing, our odyssey takes us on a series of climbs and descents of over 10,000 relentless steps. You will be following the winding wall along the mountains that range either side of the Gubeikou Gateway.

We believe all thoughts of fatigue will pale into insignificance when rewarded with iconic vistas at every turn over the vast majestic landscapes.
