Frequently Asked Questions

Below are our frequently asked questions however If you have a question which is not in this section, please contact us.

How do I book?

To book onto any of our trips/expeditions we will require a deposit, the payment for this varies depending on the expedition you are wishing to book.We accept Credit/Debit Card (through our website or over the phone) and BACS. We do accept cheques but there is a £25 administration charge for cheque payments – please add this to your cheque amount.

Do you need to know about my medical conditions?

It is essential that you let us know about any medical condition or injury you have when booking and that you also let your leader know on the starting day of your course if anything has changed since filling in your booking/medical form. This information will remain completely confidential but is essential to allow us to tailor our activities to suit you and to ensure the safety of other group members. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions of your booking.

Do you have any age limits on your trips?

If any clients are under 18 they must be accompanied by a parent/guardian and a disclaimer signed to show you have given parental/guardian consent for them to take part.

Are these trips a good choice for solo travellers?

Yes. A lot of our clients travel on their own or in small groups of 2-4 people. We can pair you up in accommodation with a similar traveller to reduce your costs, or you can pay a little extra to have your own room in the hotels/guest houses we offer. If you are staying in mountain huts this is not possible as they do not offer single rooms for travellers. On some expeditions we use tents, on our backpacking trips you will often have a tent to yourself. On other trips you may be sharing. Often it is possible to have a tent on your own for a small fee.

What type of accommodation will I be staying in during my trip?

We always use accommodation that passes our high standards to ensure that all of our clients have a comfortable place to stay where they can relax during their trip. When staying in towns and villages we will always book comfortable hotel/guest house accommodation. For accommodation on the mountains these will range from mountain huts to tents depending on the trip that you are doing. For more information about the type of accommodation please see the individual trip listing and download the full trip information.

Can special diets be accommodated?

We can accommodate most diets, all that we ask is that you notify us of what kind of diet you require at the time of booking so we can make special arrangements before your departure.

What if I need to cancel a course booking?

Please refer to the Terms and Conditions of your booking.

Why do I need to have travel insurance when I am travelling outside of the UK?

We provide information within your trip details regarding fitness levels and training ideas, and also offer personalised training plans – on some expeditions these are included in the cost of your trips. But, are available to all for an additional cost.

What kind of people travel on your trips?

We have a wide variety of people of all ages travelling on our trips – which gives you a great opportunity to meet new people and make lifelong friends.
