Join Medcan on the ultimate adventure on the Roof of Africa

This Kilimanjaro trek will help you reach your health goals in a spectacular landscape

There is a point at which transformation takes place. For Larry Kormos, transformation was triggered when he signed up to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Medcan last summer. Larry trained with us for five months leading up to the climb, which he was motivated to embark on with his son. Soon, the 60 year old noticed remarkable changes.

“I lost 15 pounds and regained cardio capacity and an energy level not experienced in a long time,” recalls Larry.

Achieving better physical fitness helped Larry reach his goal of reaching the summit and the journey opened him to unexpected growth.

This summer, Medcan will guide another group of clients on a Kilimanjaro climb. We will prepare you physically and mentally to ensure you achieve something remarkable.
