Prepare yourself for your next expedition by training with us over a weekend in the South Downs of England! With easy access from London and southern England, this East Sussex training program will get you ready and able to trek anywhere in the world!

The South Downs are hills of chalk that stretch through three provinces in southern England. The range extends for roughly 670 square kilometers through East Sussex, West Sussex, and Hampshire, and was incorporated in the South Downs National Park in 2011.

The beauty of the region is incomparable, and it has been a stunning feature of the United Kingdom throughout history. The 20th century destruction during the war, particularly in the east, and the subsequent encroachment of development into the area, led to the recent creation of the park to maintain the integrity of the South Downs.

The convenience of the location makes it perfect for a weekend getaway to train for any and all upcoming excursions. Whether you have been eyeing a journey up Kilamanjaro or wanted to conquer Everest and the Himalayas, this program will set you up for success wherever the trail might lead you.

My experience at many of the world´s top trek destinations has enabled me to properly train other adventurers. During the program, I will address many issues you will face during a hike, including navigation, camping, fitness, and altitude, just ton ame a few. Covering safety and equipment measures will also prepare you for anything the trek might throw at you.

I will cover techniques that will enhance your abilities in many conditions. There will be sustained hiking on both days, so a basic level of fitness is necessary. However, this trip is meant for everyone, so all are welcome to join.

Book this training program NOW and take a weekend to prepare yourself for you next great expedition!
