frequently asked questions

If I book with friends, will we be together in the same group?

Simply let us know on your booking form that you are booking with friends (please include their names) or pop us an email after you have booked to give us all the details. It’s really easy.

I don't have a group, can I join you on my own?

We welcome individuals to join our ‘open’ expeditions where you will find others who are also joining us as individuals. It is a great way to make friends and share an exciting journey.

We have specialised in running ‘open’ expeditions since 2009 and have helped over 1000 individuals complete their expedition journeys in an friendly and welcoming environment.

Can I join you for just a practice or an assessed expedition?

We can help you with a practice expedition or an assessed (qualifying) expedition. When booking your place simply let us know on your booking form whether you will be joining us for practice or assessed or pop us an email – it’s really easy.

If you are joining us for an assessed expedition and you have completed your practice expedition with your school or another organisation we will require evidence from you regarding your practice expedition and this is also really easy to do.
