Q. What equipment do I need to bring with me?
A. We send out a detailed equipment list approximately 3 months before your date of departure.
Q. What boots do I need?
A. The brand of boot is not important but they should be comfortable, fit well and within your budget. Sometimes more expensive does not mean better value.
When you purchase your pair of boots, make sure they feel comfortable straight away, and make sure that when laced up your foot can not slide inside the boot. If it does you will get blisters.
Q. What jacket do I need to get?
A. there are many great types on the market.

A. Our group size varies from trip to trip. We focus on smaller groups and try to keep the limit to 15 people. This allows us to provide a better, more personal service.
