Since 1988 - High Places - small company, small groups, small impact.
We believe our mountain holidays will be enjoyed by anyone who is in good health, has an enthusiasm for hill walking, different cultures and overseas travel. We are known for having a relaxed and informal style and for recognizing the intelligence and experience of our clients - be they a beginner or lifetime mountain walker.
We try not to run whistle-stop tours. Tourist haunts and large hotels are usually avoided. You are never packaged. And remember our maximum size of group is 12 and less for some expedition grade trips.

How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
High Places supports the IPPG (International Porter Protection Group) who works to improve the conditions of mountain porters in the tourism industry worldwide.
We try to minimise the impact on the environment in our UK office. For instance: Our brochure and stationary is printed on recycled paper, we re-use or recycle office waste paper and we make sure office equipment is turned off overnight.
We are a member of Tourism Concern who work with communities in destination countries to reduce social and environmental problems connected to tourism, to working with the out-going UK tourism industry to find ways of improving tourism so that local benefits are increased.
