Great Wall of China Trek

Having quickly filled all the places for our first overseas trek last year, we’re excited to tell you that you now have the chance experience an unforgettable 8 day adventure in China, in this exciting fundraising challenge!

Experience the Great Wall of China, one of the world’s greatest ancient wonders, in November 2020 and challenge yourself like never before!

The Trip at a glance

This trek takes you to a remote section of the Great Wall of China, from Gubeikou to Jinshanling and Simatai. Not only will you trek on the wall itself, meticulously built and restored over thousands of years, but you will also have the opportunity to trek through wild and remote landscapes with distant views of green rolling hills, mountain peaks and with one of the great wonders of the world as the backdrop.


Staying in guesthouses throughout the trek allows you to gain an understanding of authentic Chinese culture as you discover more about lifestyle of the local people and also taste some incredible local cuisine.

The trip is bespoke to St Wilfrid’s Hospice and it takes place from 31st October – 8th November 2020, in a group of up to 30 other hospice supporters.

How much is it?

Each person must pay a £330 registration fee to help cover some of the costs, and then fundraise a minimum of £3,000; your funds raised will provide a substantial donation to St Wilfrid’s Hospice and also covers the cost of your travel arrangements.

Once your place is confirmed you will receive a huge amount of support from the fundraising team to help you reach your fundraising target. You have until 7th August 2020 to raise the funds, so there is more than enough time to do it and all the support you need.
