AALA LICENCE -Do you have an AALA licence? We do not have an AALA licence, as our
trips are primarily aimed at adult groups and families and as such we do not require

we run is under fully qualified guidance. We regret though that we cannot run any
trips for unsupervised young people under 18.

You will have a qualified, experienced guide, and specialist kit and clothing that

We will not compromise on safety.
