Train & prepare specifically with the UK's most experienced High Altitude Guides & Expeditions Leaders


Expeditions require a multitude of skill sets for successful experiences, some of these skills can be picked up along the way, some require more forethought. 

Are you already booked on to an expedition and looking for some expedition specific training? From practical show-and-tell advice on clothing and kit or assistance with what kit to buy, through to real life scenarios in the mountains such as using fixed lines, abseiling, camping, cooking on stoves or practice climbing in big boots with a big pack on. With our extensive experience on expeditions all around the world, Mountain Expeditions can get you ready and prepared for your expedition objective.

Our experienced Expedition Leaders are UK mountain experts – they know which skills are harder to learn or master in the field and they know where to simulate Greater Ranges environments and training on their home turf.


“With caring attention to detail, carefully chosen objectives were delivered with patients, professionalism and passion. The expedition specific training (for Peak Lenin) paid dividends when I got to Kyrgyzstan” Jessica Hepburn
