Q) What adventure activities will we be undertaking?

- Weather conditions
- Age
- Experience
- What the group is wanting out of the retreat

Q) I'm not all that fit. Will this be a problem?

A) Participants should have a moderate level of fitness, as there are some steep uphill sections to negotiate. Abseiling off cliff is not too physically demanding, but participants are required to walk back to the top of the abseil to rejoin the group. Age & fitness are not much of a barrier for the climbing activities. Canyons require the highest fitness which will be assessed on the day of activity. Your guide will assess the competency & fitness level of the group and design the activities depending on these levels.

What if it’s raining?

A)Welcome to true adventure! Our highly trained staff know the Blue Mts better than anyone, anywhere! They are experts in knowing where to still have a fun day in the outdoors when the weather has closed in. Having said that, if the weather is absolutely atrocious, group safety is our priority and the retreat may need to be rescheduled.

Q) Can I bring my young baby?

A) No sorry. Unfortunately babies cause too much distraction. Some brest-feeding mums may opt to have their partner visit for the day with the baby, and they can meet-up during our meal brakes which works well.

Q) Can you cater for specific diet requirements?

A) Yes of course! Please just enter any special requirements in an email and we’re happy to pass these on to the caterers! Easy!

Q)What if I’ve booked, but then can’t make it on the day?

A) Yup! Drop us an email with your phone number and which course you wanted to attend, and if someone pulls out we’ll give you a bell.
