MOUNTAIN SKILLS & Wild Camping Experience

Three days of adventure in some of the UK's most challenging terrain. All the while,

learning the skills you need to safely head back into the mountains yourself

Over three days of adventure, explore the dramatic scenery of the Highlands, ascend some of Britain's highest peaks and learn the skills needed to carry out your own multi-day treks in alpine terrain.

Under careful guidance from our expert tutor you'll conquer four of the UK’s nine 4000ft mountains and hike up 5 of Britain’s 6 highest peaks. All this while wild camping in the Cairngorms - the UK’s only sub-arctic region and the highest, coldest and snowiest plateau in the British Isles.

This course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to be able to carry out your own multi-day trips in mountainous regions. Numbers are limited, as is the case with all our courses. This ensure you receive the undivided attention you deserve and gain as much from the course as possible.

Due to the number of mountains climbed, weight carried and height gain it is imperative that you have a good level of fitness in order to make the most of this course. If you're unsure of the fitness level required please get in touch with us and we can advise.
