Adventure travel company, Mountain IQ, sees a surge in travel bookings post-Covid

Mountain IQ is a leading adventure travel booking platform that connects travellers with local guides across the globe. After seeing a major downturn in travel bookings in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid, the company is now reporting a surge in travel enquiries and bookings for this year.

London, UK – Mountain IQ is a popular adventure travel website and booking platform for travellers looking for hiking and climbing adventures. The company specialises in connecting travellers with the best local guides across the globe, thereby removing middle-men agents and ensuring local communities benefit the most from travel activities.

Restrictions due to the Covid pandemic all but put a stop to travel for the past 2 years, but as most countries have now removed restrictions, Mountain IQ has seen a huge increase in enquiries and bookings.

Enquiries on the platform are up over 1,500% from their lows in 2020, and 300% from 2021, with some popular destinations up tenfold in bookings. Bucket-list adventure activities like climbing Kilimanjaro, hiking to Machu Picchu, or trekking to Everest Base Camp, have been the most popular activities on the platform. Mountain IQ’s Kilimanjaro hiking website has seen a 500% increase in bookings on 2021, with travel enquiries returning to 2019 levels.

Mountain IQ’s CEO, Mark had this to say, “Covid has been incredibly challenging for the travel industry, but it is very encouraging to see activity starting to pick up. There is so much pent-up demand. People are itching to get out and about again, especially on trips that are lifetime experiences like hiking to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro or climbing Mont Blanc. If the numbers from the first 6 months of 2022 continue, I’m confident we will see our annual bookings back to where they were pre-Covid.”
