It is time to start getting ready for that trip of a lifetime. The Expedition training course is perfect for anyone who is getting ready for an overseas expedition, such as Everest Base Camp, Kilimanjaro, the Inca Trail and more.
During the one day course, we will look at the following
- We will discuss what you can expect on your expedition
- Hiking and operating at altitude
- Operating at extreme temperatures
- The equipment you need, and the stuff you don't!
- Fitness training and schedules
- Cultural impacts
Whilst a portion of the day will be spent indoors covering theory, we will spend as much time as possible outdoors, and will aim to summit a Snowdonian peak.
After the course, each participant will receive a hints and tips guide, consolidating best practices when operating at high altitude and extreme temperatures when travelling.

what to expect
Whilst we aim to keep classroom learning to a minimum, we will spend the initial part of the day covering various topics, before heading out into the hills, where we aim to summit a peak in Snowdonia.
The course will be run by qualified Mountain Leaders, with experiences including expeditions such as hiking and climbing at altitude in the Himalaya to crossing one of the largest ice caps in the world and multiday, self-supported desert expeditions.
Basic fitness for a day walking in the hills is needed.
