MENOC – Members Events Not Organised by the Club

Members intending to participate in these non-Club events must accept that any arrangement is between them and the organiser of the proposed event, not with AAC(UK) Ltd.  When such an event is arranged through, and monies paid to a tour operator, the tour operator is the organiser, not the member initiating the event. If the event is a package within the definition of the Package Holiday Regulations (PHR), AAC(UK) recommends that such an organiser should be a PHR-compliant tour operator and, if appropriate, ATOL bonded (where a UK tour operator includes air travel in the package).

Members wishing to invite other members to join them on specific holidays should first read the MENOC protocol and MENOC Booking Form, or contact the MENOC co-ordinator.

A copy of the information sheet and application/booking form should be sent to the MENOC co-ordinator, Diana Penny Sherpani on together with suggested copy for publication in the newsletter and on the website.  The website entry may contain more information, a photo (or photo gallery as a hyperlink) and hyperlinks to your information sheet and application/booking form.

For meets and tours that are within the Club’s official programme, please see Meets and Tours – in the UK or Meets and Tours – overseas

Non-Club Events in 2019

July 7 – 21:  Volcanoes of Kamchatka, Russia

Tobachik volcano, Kamchatka – Andrew Golovachev

Six areas on the Kamchatka peninsula are  UNESCO World Heritage sites, thanks to unique combination of volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs and geysers on the east coast of the Eurasian continent.  Extremely low population and  urban development help diverse flora and fauna remain largely undisturbed.  This guided trek in a remote area covers about 100km in 8 days and starts with an ATV excursion around lava fields of the mighty Tolbachik volcano. We hike the volcano up to its crater and then continue circumnavigating it through the otherworldly scenery, climbing another active volcano and crossing a rough river on the way. The trek is followed by a boat trip along the shores of the Pacific and a day trip to a more accessible group of volcanoes, featuring hot springs, sulphur vents and bubbling mud.

Approx. cost €1760 + flights.
