Covid-19 Information

Guiding In Wales

Update 13th July

Wales is open, and so are we!  All rock climbing, mountaineering, scrambling and mountain walking activities are now on offer.

Headlines

  • Travel to and within Wales is unrestricted.

 

  • Access is permitted to all areas within the National Parks, including Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), as well as beaches and sea cliffs.

 

  • Overnight stays are permitted in self-contained accommodation without shared facilities.

 

  • Outdoor activities and sports organised by a responsible person in groups of up to 30 from mixed household are permitted.

 

  • The law in Wales will continue to make the 2m distance the default position. But when 2m cannot reasonably be maintained, the regulations will require businesses to put in place a set of additional measures to minimise the risk of the virus spreading, including taking reasonable steps to minimise close face-to-face contact and maintain hygiene.

 

  • Accommodation with shared facilities, such as campsites look set to reopen on 25th July.

 

However, the risk of infection has not gone away.  More information is emerging about the chronic long-term effects of contracting even a mild version of Covid 19, so we continue to take the health risks very seriously. We will be operating with a strict ‘staying safe protocol’ – but we believe we can manage this appropriately, and it won’t deter from having some great adventures!

Overseas Guiding

We are not planning any  Alpine guiding this summer,  although there may be an opportunity in the Autumn if the traditional Alpine season is extended into October.
For the coming winter season, we are taking reservations, based on things being back to ‘almost normal’.
As a guideline we are planning for the early part of the season  (January and February) to be Alpine based, with the later season based around various trips to Norway (Senja, Lofoten and Lyngen).
