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, but only when you get things right. These new workshops hosted by Cicerone Guides’ experts will provide an environment where you can get good, relevant advice and insight, to make any trekking trip a success.
The workshops will cover UK and novice long distance walking, Alpine and European trekking, trekking in the Himalaya, trekking in other regions of the world, and cycle touring.
Each workshop will be tailored according to the skills and experience of those attending and includes ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
All trekking Workshops are free- to-attend and seats will be allocated on a first come basis. Be sure to arrive early at the Workshops Room (Room 305) to be sure of a seat.
