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)

Climbing, hill and country walking, hiking, scrambling, mountain biking, mountaineering, klettersteig and snow sports (and any other similar activities) (the “Activities”) organised by Austrian Alpine Club (UK) (“AAC(UK)”) are physically challenging and carry risks that AAC(UK) cannot entirely eliminate. These include the risk of personal injury or death. In taking part in the Activities you acknowledge and accept these risks, being responsible for your own actions, involvement, health condition and safety.  All event participants must follow any safety warnings or instructions displayed or given to them by a leader or organiser (and ask a leader or organiser if anything is unclear). In the absence of any breach of duty by AAC(UK), participation in the Activities is entirely at participants’ own risk.
