68 - Trekking Centre


If you are really interested in getting into the popular sport of trekking, but are a little bit worried about your safety or lack of experience, then a great way to ease yourself into this sport is to first pay a visit to a trekking centre. A trekking centre can help you to get into the sport by giving you information on local routes and trekking trails, letting you know what conditions and challenges to expect and basically giving the peace of mind of having a bit of advice and discussion on your intended treks before you take off for real.

You can also get many additional services from a trekking centre such as buying maps and even getting guided treks. In some instances, it will only be very beginners and families who are taking young children along with them who will want to have a guided trek but depending on where you are planning on trekking and the degree of difficulty that you are considering undertaking, you may well decide that you need a guide in various different circumstances. For example, if you are going up high mountains in winter or are abroad in more challenging areas, it is often a good idea to think about getting a guide before you undertake the most challenging treks.

Another thing that a trekking centre will be able to help you with, and something that most of the trekking centres in Britain are well known for is getting you organised with horse or pony trekking. If you want to go pony trekking, an you are not very well experienced with your own horse, then the best and probably the cheapest and easiest way to do so is to go straight to a trekking centre and have them make all of the arrangements for you. These types of services are much better organised by a trekking centre than you are likely to be able to organise yourself and you will probably enjoy the experience a lot more if you do go to a trekking centre before hand.

If you are unfamiliar with a new trekking area and are having trouble getting the information that you need about where to trek, what routes to take, what maps are dependable and so on, then a trekking centre is a great way of getting all of the help you need. You will also be able to benefit from getting advice and tips from people who are familiar with the area and have first hand experience of the treks that you are considering taking.
