Courses

Welcome to the online home of Expeditionguide.com and thanks for visiting! Throughout the year we provide Mountaineering Instruction and Courses in Snowdonia and run a range of navigation, scrambling and rock climbing courses & Alpine Trekking trips and expeditions to educate, motivate and inspire. We run most of the courses ourselves, on our bigger trips we are assisted by good friends who are equally qualified, experienced and enthusiastic.

Please be aware that all of our courses are currently on hold due to the Coronavirus situation. We do not wish to encourage travel to Snowdonia and urge people to stay at home. The mountains will be there when we need them. In the meantime, please browse the site, watch our videos and get inspired for when this is all over!


“Rob is the definition of the calm professional in an environment that is anything but. He is a walking encyclopaedia of the mountains, and the techniques used to master them for the furthering of your own life story. And he inspires trust by being the safe pair of hands from which you can learn how to make yours steady in the most beautiful and dramatic places in the world – not least North Wales!”
Simon Ingram, Editor – Trail Magazine

We provide Mountain Leader Training and Assessment courses as an approved provider and course director for Mountain Training Cymru here in North Wales as well as mountain skills training & expeditions for individuals or groups on open courses or as private guiding.

Our summer program is primarily based in the mountains of Snowdonia with our Navigation, Scrambling & Rock Climbing Courses whilst in winter we run the majority of our courses in Scotland and the courses on offer include Scottish Winter Skills, Winter Mountaineering & Climbing, Avalanche Avoidance and Snowshoe Trips.

With our Mountaineering Instruction and Courses in Snowdonia our aim is to help you become self sufficient and self reliant in the mountains and on the crags in summer or winter and to help trainee leaders develop a career in the mountains. We hope you enjoy browsing the site, it details our full range of trips and courses as you would expect but hopefully there are some extras that will inspire you to get out and enjoy the mountains!

I look forward to meeting you in the hills. Rob Johnson
