Coronavirus

 

Current Situation:

We are providing private bookings on a 1:1 basis (or 1:2 for members of the same household). Available dates are shown below. 

We can run almost any of our courses on a private booking basis. If the dates show below don’t work for you then please email rob@expeditionguide.com 

There are no current travel restrictions in Wales. 

Accommodation 

Self catering accommodation is now open in Wales and camp sites are due to open at the end of July. We have updated our page on accommodation options locally here. 

Practical Measures

We are offering our full range of navigation, scrambling, climbing, guided photography and mountain biking with the following measures in place to make activities Covid secure: 

  • There will be no indoor element to our days – we will meet outside and all of the activity will take place outside
  • We will not share vehicles so you will need your own transport 
  • We will keep 2 metres apart wherever possible 
  • We will use pre-course questionnaires to ensure people do not have symptoms prior to joining the course
  • We will avoid the sharing of equipment, food, water etc
  • We will avoid the busy honeypots
  • We will work 1:1 or 1:2 to manage social distancing and environmental impact

We will continue to follow Government Guidance with the aim of being socially responsible, safe, lawful and realistic in what we are able to provide as things move forward. The activities that we offer will be carried out in accordance with AMI guidelines

FINANCIAL CHANGES  

Bookings during the Pandemic will be subject to revised terms and conditions where there is no financial penalty for cancelling due to ill health and you are asked to complete a pre-course questionnaire and bring specialist equipment with you. You will also need your own transport. Read Details. 

TIMESCALES

We have taken the decision not to offer open courses for the months of July, August and September but instead to offer private bookings for single households only. (The law in Wales does now allow multiple households for outdoor activities and so this is down to our personal choice) 

Open courses will be re-advertised when we are satisfied that we can run them responsibly, safely, lawfully and realistically.  

We will keep people up to date via this page, Facebook and our mailing list.
