Latest availability - updated in real time

Below are listed all our scheduled and bespoke course dates. The availability is updated in real time*** from our online booking system. When there are below five spaces we show the actual number of remaining places, otherwise the spaces are shown as '5+'. Each week there are several different types of course that are running. If no dates suit, or you would like a similar course on alternative dates, contact us or look at the bespoke page.

The majority of trips have no minimum numbers**, so your space is protected by our guarantees; 1. The trip will operate*, 2. No surcharges, 3. Inclusions as advertised, 4. Dates are fixed, and 5. Make travel arrangements immediately.

Note*: spaces on courses without minimum numbers are guaranteed from the moment of booking, subject to this being over 8 weeks (56 days) before a trip departure. If you are looking to book a trip within this timescale, please contact us first to confirm availability, before completing a booking form.

Minimum numbers**: if booking within 8 weeks the numbers of availability showing may not just be a function of the remaining spaces on your chosen trip, based on guiding ratios at a maximum, but of available spaces due to logistical factors such as shared accommodation with other courses.

Live spaces ***: within 8 weeks do not believe the live spaces as representative of numbers on a course, as on this last minute timescale we have to adapt to close spaces to avoid unecessary costs. It is imperative that you contact us before booking when considering a trip less than 8 weeks away.
