COVID-19 in China

Updated: 17/02/2020

We have taken the decision to cancel our first Great Wall of China Trek in 2020 (27th March - 5th April) due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). If you were booked on this trip you will have been contacted, if you are concerned and haven't heard from us please do contact the office as soon as possible. 

We are still closely monitoring this situation. We receive regular updates from the Foreign Office, AITO and our local operators. The best source of information for any visitors with individual questions or concerns is Public Health England. Visitors can keep up to date with the latest advice from the UK Government’s website here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-and-avian-flu-advice-for-travel-to-china

We are still taking bookings for our future trips, as we have had no suggestion to alter our plans and have assurances from the FCO that they will look to lower their level of travel advice as soon as the situation allows. The safety of our participants is our number one priority, and we base any decisions about our trips on this. We're hopeful that things will return to normal soon. 

If you are already booked to trek the Great Wall with us this year, we will be keeping you up to date with information as and when we receive it. If you have any concerns, please do contact the office. 

This is a beautiful country we love to travel to and have explored for many years. We are thinking of our friends and colleagues in China as we understand that this is a difficult and frustrating situation.
