Why Choose Learn Outdoors for your Outdoor Expedition?

Ethos 

Life should be enjoyable and worthwhile and we hope everyone who attends a Learn Outdoors course will have fun and achieve a goal.

We don’t take the countryside for granted and we minimise our impact on the environment wherever possible.

Our business is focussed. We aim to deliver a few products well but don’t try to be all things to all people. If we can’t deliver a particular service you are looking for we’ll help you find someone who can.

Customer Care

We care about the product and service we provide. We tailor our courses to suit your needs and are always interested in ways of improving our business.

We don’t keep people in the dark. We like to communicate and you will be given all the information you need before a course starts.

All our courses are managed by a dedicated Course Director.

Feedback is important to us and we regularly update what we do based on it.

Safety & Standards

All our hill and mountain walking instructors hold the Mountain Leaders Award as a minimum qualification. All our instructors are first aid trained and DBS checked.

We employ the services of a highly experienced outdoor professional as our Technical Advisor and a qualified doctor as our Medical Advisor.

We are a DofE Approved Activity Provider (AAP).

We hold an Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) Licence for Trekking (Hillwalking & Mountaineering).

Safety is taken seriously and we maintain comprehensive operating and emergency procedures. These are inspected by the Adventure Activity Licensing Service (AALS).

Our Public Liability insurance is for £5 million and our Employers’ Liability for £10 million.

We hold memberships of professional bodies such as The Institute for Outdoor Learning, Natural Mid Wales and the South Wales Outdoor Activity Providers Group.
