Trek Training

These walks are tailored for groups that want to practise for their upcoming expeditions (e.g. reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro, walking the Inca Trail or trekking to Everest Base Camp). Hire me for the day and I’ll tailor a trek training walk specific to your needs and requirements.

Are you planning on scaling the heights of Kilimanjaro, the Inca Trail or Everest Base Camp or hoping to enjoy long Alpine walks in the summer? Then trek training walks will be perfect for you. I can give you advice before your trip and leading up to a trek training walk. The day itself is likely to involve lots of ascent to build your base fitness, ready for your challenge ahead. If you hire me as a private guide for the day, I can tailor a walk to your specific needs and to the goals that you want to achieve, whether it’s distance, ascent, specific terrain or all three that you want to work on.

Price: £160–200 for a full day (for a group)
