Testimonials For ISM

This was a fantastic trip. Paolo was excellent. The accommodation great. All helped along by wall to wall sunshine, stunning arctic scenery and some superb snow, so no problems as far as I'm concerned.

What a brilliant week we had! I really enjoyed the fact that the course was very hands on and we were given freedom and responsibility to look after ourselves. I really like the fact that the price was all-inclusive, the the course was excellent value for money!

Rachel (2017)

I just wanted to thank you as well as Mark, our guide for the amazing week. The course was well organized and was just perfect for a beginner to mountaineering. We couldn't have wished for a better adventure. The memories are irreplaceable.
