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).

AAC(UK) cannot vouch for the validity of any information provided for these events. Nevertheless, members wishing to invite other members to join them on specific holidays and treks by advertising in this section of the Calendar should send their Calendar entry, and a copy of the information they will be supplying to enquirers, to the MENOC co-ordinator

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

Approximately 4 week expedition. The objective is to climb among a group of nine relatively easy 4000m+ peaks in the Terskey Ala-Too mountains, which lie south of Lake Issyk-Kul. Most will be first recorded ascents. Participants will need to have at least two alpine seasons or the equivalent.


August 26 – September 9:  Volcanoes of Kamchatka, Russia

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 70km in 6 days, circumnavigating the mighty Tolbachik volcano and culminating with an ascent to its rim at 3080m.  The trek is followed by a 2-day excursion to a more accessible group of volcanoes, featuring hot springs, sulfur vents and bubbling mud.

Approx. cost £1250.
