Meets and Tours – Overseas

If you are a member please login to see full details.

This programme of non-UK Club meets and tours, mostly organised by members for members, provides an opportunity for you to take part in a wide variety of events, outside the UK. Please join in. Your company is welcome; your enthusiasm, help and expertise are needed. If you can arrange an event of any kind, please contact the relevant co-ordinator well in advance. To offer a tour you will need to have a leader’s qualification (Übungsleiter) – see Training: Austrian Courses, Leadership page. Meets and tours require long lead times and should be planned, and booked, well ahead.

All meets and tours: Plan and book early to avoid disappointment. A non-returnable deposit or full payment is required to book a place.  Please also supply an SAE, unless the Meet Organiser/Tour Leader is willing to communicate by email. Please do not approach any accommodation proprietor to attempt to vary any aspect of the Organiser’s/Leader’s accommodation booking; only the Meet Organiser/Tour Leader may do this.

For any members using Alpenverein huts, participants must bring their own sleeping bag, pillowcase, towels, face mask, hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes in order to comply with hut Covid regulations. Please also check on the hut website the exact requirements before travel.  Please also confirm Covid specific requirements with your tour leader in advance of travel. 

For other Overseas meets and holidays that are outside the Club’s official programme, please see Members’ events – non club (MENOC)
