FAQ

How much does an event cost?

Please get in touch for quote.

How fit or what experience is needed to join an event?

An appropriate level of fitness is required but planned events will give more detail of what is involved.  It's good to push yourself but you need to be aware of your own limits.

Single day hikes would be more suited to beginners unless otherwise stated.  

Wild camping trips are for walkers who have done some single day hikes and have experience of carrying a heavy rucksack.
 

If you have any doubts about the suitability of an event for you, please contact us and we'll be delighted to help.
 

What time do events start?

Depending on the event, location and parking areas we will normally start:-

  • Day hikes any time between 8.00/9.30am.

  • Navigation courses start at 9am.

  • Private and camping trips will vary depending on location and itinerary.
     

Do events include accommodation or meals?

Food/accommodation is not included with advertised events.

 

What happens if I cannot attend an event or the event is cancelled?

This information can be found on the Term and Conditions page. You can also take out holiday insurance to cover yourself for this possibility.

 

Weather?

We check forecasts leading up to an event and aim to stick to the original plan as stated on the event page.  If weather forecasts force a change, we would confirm an alternative event/location. 

If we have to cancel an event, you will be refunded in full.
