Testimonials For ISM

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!

Fantastic trip, both Steve and Sandy were amazing! Wholeheartedly loved the trip, already looking at doing another one!

Edward (2017)
Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)

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.
