How can we help you?

We offer a variety of courses throughout the UK as well as treks much further afield.

For example courses are regularly run on Dartmoor with it’s featureless terrain perfect for learning to navigate, North Wales home to some of Britain’s classic mountain walks and scrambles whilst all our winter courses are held in Scotland either in the Cairngorms or on the West Coast.

Guided walks suitable for all abilities can be organised anywhere but popular ones include, the Moors and Tors of Eastern Dartmoor, the Snowdon Horseshoe, and Ben Nevis via Carn mor Dearg.

If you are looking  to learn some new skills or for specific training then have a look at our Navigation, Hill Skills, Rock Climbing or Winter Skills sections below.

Perhaps you fancy something more adventurous such as some Scrambling, or want to learn the art of traveling light and Bivvy overnight or experience  a night in a Snowhole. Alternatively if you would like some one to one tuition or you are a group of friends then please do get in touch.

Above all we want you to learn new skills and have a memorable day.

As you would expect we are fully insured for all the activities we undertake.

The costs of all courses is £140 per day for the first per person. An additional person is £20 extra, up to the course maximum which is either 2, 3 or 4 clients depending upon the course. Full details upon request.
