I am  a hiking guide with a focus on training (not a travel agency) whose mission is to promote fitness and an affinity with the outdoors as promoted and sold on this website The physical training I provide is occasionally in areas where its useful to help facilitate accommodation and sometimes transport. When I do help facilitate accommodation and transport this is done on a not-for-profit basis to a limited amount of people.

2. There are no rights applying to Packages and LTA under regulation when booking a hiking tour with FEAT. However, I will make every effort to ensure that everything is in place for you to enjoy our training and treks with us. I do not sell nor offer for sale air holidays and flights; hence the activities are not ATOL protected. ATOL is a protection scheme for air holidays and flights managed by the Civil Aviation Authority.



3. FEAT is not responsible for the proper performance of travel services provided by third parties, including but not limited to accommodation, flight operators and taxi drivers. If you are dissatisfied with their services, please contact the relevant service provider.

However, there may be fees involved depending on the amount of time the event is due.
