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.

We are open and honest all the time about the numbers on our trips. The majority have no minimum numbers**, so when you book, your space is protected by the 'ICICLE 5*LOCKED'™ guarantee, so that 1. The trip will operate*, 2. No surcharges, 3. Inclusions as advertised, 4. Dates are fixed, and 5. You can 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.

          A key part of choosing a company is being able to come and talk about your plans with an experienced course advisor face to face. In an increasingly virtual world, we know our clients value speaking to real people, getting open and honest advice. The vast majority of our clients are British, and our office and outdoor store is based in Windermere in the English Lake District.

Many people opt for this service, and it is an integral part of what we offer, as we are keen to ensure that you are prepared as possible, and that you select a course that is suitable for you. It makes it easier and more enjoyable for you and us, if you are on the right trip.
