Expedition Core Skills Full Course - 3-12 November

I set up Ice Warrior to really reflect my own values (which are very dear to me!) and I like to do things properly.

Our comprehensive expedition training programme demonstrates this, perfectly and will give you ALL the skills necessary to either conduct your own expeditions or be a brilliant team member in someone else’s.

You’ll find no matter where you are in terms of skills development there is a place for you within the programme and we measure and record your development throughout, so whether you’re heading towards an Ice Warrior flagship expedition or considering your own expedition you can join us at any stage.

The only pre-requisite for any of the core training is an open mind and the right attitude – Positive and flexible!

How will you learn?

My style is one of coaxing it out of you, wherever possible. We rarely lead you by the nose. We have found that this method results in a much better level of retention and therefore competence. This combined with providing the relevant chapters of Jim’s Expedition Training Manual and employing the very best of instructional staff makes us confident of the thorough nature and high quality of training.


Bellever YHA, Bellever, Postbridge, Devon, PL20 6TU

The property is in the centre of Dartmoor National Park surrounded by open moorland. Once part of a Duchy farm, YHA Bellever makes for a comfortable learning environment with the nearby East Dart River, Bellever Forest and Tor ideal for training.

Accommodation is bunkhouse style but very comfortable.

Our host, Maria, cooks some great home cooked food using local ingredients – very welcome after an intensive day of training.

In 2008 YHA Bellever was a GTBS Gold award for its commitment to the environment
