Our Leaders & Medics
Leadership & support ..
.. why risk it?
All of our Himalayan Challenges are run with a UK Challenge Leader & qualified medic. They fly out with the group and make sure that the Challenge is a success.
They work alongside our local teams to make sure transfers, accommodation and meals run smoothly. During the challenge, they are your go-to for any questions or issues. From advice on kit, to taking care of blisters - our staff are there to ensure you have a safe, fun and successful challenge.
You may find a cheaper Himalayas Challenge package online, but is it worth investing your time & money into a challenge without proper support? We provide crew with deep knowledge of our challenges, plus full expedition medical kits provided by Nomad Travel Health Clinic, oxygen cylinders, & daily health monitoring from a qualified medic.
Our staff live and breathe adventure travel. We know that there are plenty of options out there when it comes to arranging your challenge, and we know that it’s possible to save some cash by cutting a deal with a cheap operator. We may not be the cheapest when it comes to a Himalayan Challenge, but we guarantee that by booking with us, you won’t be left with any extra hassle or worries.

The best part of that is sharing the experience with others, pushing people to achieve their best and leading the most amazing teams to complete incredible challenges. I've lead approaching 1000 participants on AC challenges and I can't wait for the next 1000 and beyond!" - Joe Johnstone
