On any of our mountain walks, our number one priority is your safety. We will do all we can to ensure that you complete the walk without incident. However, it is important to understand that the service we offer is that of a guided walk, and that there are limits to what we are able to do in terms of ensuring your wellbeing. You must excercise personal responsibility and understand the risks associated with such a physically demanding activity.
Your guide will be experienced and have excellent local knowledge. They will also have a recognised first aid qualification and will carry with them a basic first aid kit. What they are not able to do however is assess the level of fitness of individuals within the group, or be expected to know anything about their medical history. Anyone wishing to undertake any of our walks needs to be confident that they are able to complete the walk without any undue risk to themselves.
Your guide will do their utmost to pace the walk so that it is comfortable for everybody, and it should be understood that the walk can only go as quickly as the slowest person is capable. If at any time you need a rest or wish the pace to slow a little, please make your guide aware immediately. Remember, there is no rush. Our walks are to be enjoyed and are not an endurance test. Take your time and enjoy the view – it is why you are there after all!
Insurance and Medical Cover
The price for all our walks is inclusive of insurance. Any additional insurance you have is welcome, but rest assured that in the highly unlikely event of an accident or medical emergency, your rescue and emergency treatment is covered. However, you should remember that as an EU citizen you are automatically entitled to emergency treatment in other EU member states, but you must carry with you your EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) in order to receive this. We would strongly recommend therefore that you carry this card with you.
