Treksmart Trekking Induction Days
If you have booked on one of our trekking holidays and have some lingering questions on what to pack, or how to prepare, or are thinking of doing a trekking trip and are wondering what it will be like we run Treksmart Day Courses; a day of talks and activities to help you prepare for your future trekking trip such as a trekking holiday to Nepal or even the famous Mount Kilimanjaro climb. These sessions are friendly and fun, and are designed to answer any queries which are at the back of your mind.
Sessions run 9.30am – 4pm and cover the following points:
What life is like on a trek - everything you wanted to know.
Pre-trek planning – being organised upfront makes sure you avoid any last minute panics - areas covered include visa, currency, inoculations etc.
Kit – We breakdown the huge array of stuff on offer and explain what to take, including demonstrations of what’s best for you or your trip.
Acute Mountain Sickness – one of the biggest areas of concern; we’ll explain what it is, what signs to look for and how to deal with it.
Physicality – we’ll discuss any concerns regarding fitness levels, providing basic tips and plans to help you make the most of the trek.
Self health checks – We’ll explain what to lookout for and how best to deal with any issues on trek such as blisters, strains and bites.
Basic outdoor skills – although not needed on your trip we’ll do some practical exercises to get you attuned to mountain life, including some basic principles on map reading and putting up a tent.
Q&As - on any unanswered questions.
The day will be led by a qualified mountain leader, supported by staff from The Adventure Company. It’s a great opportunity to talk to experts, and potentially meet members of your trekking trip.
The Treksmart days are designed for anyone with questions or concerns about their trekking trip. They give an overview on all elements within a trekking trip.
Location & Dates
The sessions will take place at our offices in Alton, Hampshire, GU34 1HL. Plus if you have a group of 10 or more we'll come and run the course at a location convenient for you.
What’s more, Alton is on the edge of the South Downs National Park and an hour from the New Forest so you can make a weekend of it. We'll happily help you find some accommodation at either so you can stay in the area and enjoy a Sunday walk.
