What are the costs and what is included?

There are usually 2 options on cost – one with transport included from Llanelli and one where you use your own transport. So a typical weekend trip may be £110 including transport or £80 if using your own. Also included is the overnight stay on those trips more than 1 day. In addition you will be fully supervised and guided on all the walks, hikes and climbs. Food & drink not included.

Will we be safe?

Safety is always the number one priority. We will never take any unnecessary risks or do anything that would put the group in danger. Risk assessments are carried out along with years of experience leading and managing groups plus a very high dose of common sense ensure your safety. In addition, Joe is a qualified Mountain Leader (ML) and is fully qualified in Outdoor First Aid and there are always additional helpers and support on the trips.

How fit do you need to be?

It depends on which trip and challenge you would like to do. There is a trip ratings guide  and each trip has been rated. There is a wide range of trips for all levels of ability and most people are very capable of doing most of these trips and challenges. If in doubt please email for more advice (info@themountainguys.co.uk)

What clothes and equipment do I need?

This will depend on which trip and the weather and conditions at the time. However, a good pair of comfortable hiking boots is essential plus a small backpack. Waterproofs, base layer, fleece, hat and gloves, etc. Generally comfortable layers but do not wear jeans! If in doubt please email for specific advice.

Are there any age limits?

In general the trips are for adults, although children may be allowed if accompanied by an adult or with written permission from their parents. There is no official upper age limit. On a typical trip the ages can vary from 20 to 60 and a mix of men and women. However, please email if any specific questions.
Some walks will be highlighted as child friendly, however children are the responsibility of the parents

Are there any refunds if I pull out?

In some circumstances a refund or partial refund may be possible but as a general rule the answer is no. Most costs are paid for upfront so unless we fill the place we will lose money. We try to be as fair as possible so discounts on future trips may be offered. Please email info@themountainguys.co.uk if you have any specific questions.
