Whether you are heading to Everest Base Camp or Kilimanjaro, our training weekends are designed to get you ready for your adventure of a lifetime!
You will complete 2 days of back-to-back trekking in the Lake District fells. This will help you prepare both physically and mentally and answer any questions you may have about your trip.
Each day is tailored to prepare you for your international trek, taking in good milage, elevation and the chance to summit several Lakeland Peaks.
Your training will be lead by a qualified Mountain Leader with international trekking and expedition experience. They will deliver an informal syllabus of topics designed to best prepare you for your trip, as well as be on hand to offer personal experience and advice.
Topics covered include:
- Your equipment list
- How to pack for your adventure
- Fitness and training plans
- Movement on different trekking terrain – steep ground, scree etc.
- Expedition top tips – safety, dealing with altitude, personal hygiene on expedition, camping.
- Any other questions about your trip
These weekends are perfect as an introduction to trekking if you are considering a trip, a boost to your fitness ahead of your holiday or a sociable refresher for those who have travelled before.
