Mountain expedition and trek training

At Mountaintrails we have a wealth of experience of hiking around the world. Our Expedition and Trek Adventure Days are designed to help those who are venturing further afield, perhaps for the first time, to assess their fitness and get advice on the best way to approach their trek of a lifetime!

About expedition and trek training

On this one day course offer a guided day hike to assess your level of fitness during which we will:
Look at clothing and equipment required for your chosen trip.
Discuss nutrition and the key factors in keeping healthy and avoiding altitude sickness.
Devise a hike/fitness program if necessary to get you ready for your adventure.
