Introducing Cicerone’s trekking workshops at the Adventure Travel Show for 2019
If your first and only experience of long-distance walking or hiking was struggling with a heavy-laden pack on a camping trip with school or a youth group – think again!
Multi-day walking trips can be a wonderful experience – a journey of discovery and immensely rewarding, but only when you get things right. No matter what you are planning, these workshops provide an environment where you can get good, relevant advice and insight, to make any trekking trip a success, wherever in the world and whatever your level of experience.
From the basics of selecting the right gear and packing as light as possible, to the essentials for organising your own Himalayan trek, Cicerone’s experts are on hand to offer advice to help you prepare and have the best possible experience, and to introduce you to Cicerone’s huge range of nearly 150 trekking and cycle touring guidebooks.
Among the workshop leaders and their areas of expertise are: Kev Reynolds (Alps, Pyrenees and Himalaya), Becky Coles (expedition and adventure travel specialist), Cressida Allwood (expedition leader and global cyclist), Paddy Dillon (UK national trails, Corsica, Iceland and different islands), Jan Bakker (Trekking in Tajikistan) and Kat Davis (Pilgrim trails and Japan).
The one-hour workshops will cover UK long distance walking, Alpine trekking, trekking in the Himalaya, trekking in other regions of Europe and the rest of the world, and cycle touring, and most will be offered on both Saturday and Sunday. The content of each workshop will be tailored according to the skills and experience of those attending, with an additional half-hour at the end providing ample opportunity for further questions and discussion.
