As with all Granite Trails courses, Expedition Training is bespoke to your needs, so talk to us about your plans (and budget) and we’ll design a training plan just for you! Just a few hours spent with an outdoor professional can make all the difference.

Don’t leave your great adventure to chance or put all your trust in tour operators or local “guides”, equip yourself with some sound professional training, before you leave. And have a fantastic time!
