Preparing for your Course
To make the most of your climbing experience we encourage you to work on your fitness prior to the trip.
You will find that training with a 20 kg + pack on is the best preparation for the mountains, with the aim of getting ‘pack fit’ and building your endurance.
Your guide places special focus on fitness levels and will regulate the pace accordingly.
For more information and details on fitness training programs check out our Fitness Training page.
We strongly recommend that you take out trip cancellation and travel insurance to protect yourself in case of injury or mishap prior to/or whilst on our trips
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 may not be eligible for bulk compensation payments. You are responsible for any medical or evacuation costs beyond the cover provided by ACC.
