Support and Leadership
Each trek we run is co-led by at least two leaders qualified in the UK by the Mountain Training Association, who are also trained in outdoor first aid and emergency situations.
We undertake detailed planning and are responsible for your safety and comfort and are trained to look after your welfare, and ensure you maintain a steady pace. They are also responsible for making dynamic decisions on the trek if any changes or time keeping issues arise.
Each evening after the group meal, a route, weather and safety briefing for the next day is held.
The group is supported by a bus or car which carries additional food, water and medical equipment, and where trekkers can safely leave alternate weatherproofing if necessary. We meet up at the vehicle at regular check points for breaks, it is never far away from pre-planned evacuation points, and is always in radio contact with the leaders.
Trek mentors who have been on the route before may also attend and provide volunteer support.
Our detailed risk assessment is available upon request. We carry appropriate insurance as a company and as individuals to conduct these treks.
