Expedition Training/Skills Weekends (Year Round)

Usually two or more days covering skills and techniques required for when you’re going further afield. These weekends offer a great chance to really soak up the knowledge of the staff, ask questions, learn new skills, test your own personal kit and really act as a confidence booster before you depart. If you have a trip planned then get in touch and we can put together a weekend that really focuses on your adventure.
