Health & Fitness

Your Health

Our registration form requests that you advise us of any medical problems you may have and if you are on any medication.  Any information you supply will be treated as confidential.  

PREPARING FOR YOUR COURSE

To make the most of your experience we encourage you to work on your fitness prior to the trip. Your guide places special focus on fitness levels and will regulate the pace accordingly. Hill walking is especially useful and you should try carrying a pack with a few water bottles in it which you can empty prior to your descent, thus saving your knees from un-necessary stress.

Following are some tips and a basic Training for Mountaineering programme.

Insurance

We strongly recommend that you take out trip cancellation insurance to protect yourself in case of injury or mishap prior to/or whilst on our trips. This is usually available as an option when you purchase your airfare.

Whilst our focus is on safety and our track record supports this, the mountains do have hazards and there is always the potential for mishap.

If you were injured whilst on the trip the New Zealand Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) will pay rescue costs, however you would not be eligible for bulk compensation payments. You are responsible for any medical or evacuation costs beyond the cover provided by ACC.  Hence it is worth getting travel insurance for your trip.
