Quality of Instruction & Activity Planning

We believe that Contour’s approach to planning your personal experience is unique, and our preparation before, during and after ensures that the experience is tailored to your needs and not to ours.  All our instructors hold National Governing Body Awards for their relevant areas of expertise which are further underpinned by their own personal experience.  We always maintain a low student to instructor ratio to allow you to gain more valuable one-on-one time with your tutor.  Not only will you recieve a comprehensive course joining pack on booking your course or holiday with us, but you'll also be sent full feedback on completion of your activity so you know the next steps to broaden and improve your knowledge & skills.  You'll be able to access all your documentation, both pre and post course via your own password protected Contour Account


Our group equipment is of the highest standard, inspected and changed on a regular basis


Your safety is of paramount importance to us.  Risk assessments are made prior to any activity.  Dynamic assessments are made during the course of the day’s activity

Contour uses the SPOT GPS tracking system to remotely monitor the location and progress of groups. This way we can be sure of our group’s locations at all times. Should the need arise the same system can be used to alert the emergency services to a potential problem, even when we're working in remote areas out of mobile phone coverage

All instructors hold a valid First Aid Qualification (REC or equivalent)

Contour holds 5 million pounds of public liability insurance in addition to their instructors own personal liability policies

Value for Money

The prices given on the website reflect an individual booking and we will invariably be able to give a discount based on:

The number of people attending the course or holiday, with discounted rates to groups and families

The content of the course or holiday and, in the case of private guiding, the number of days you book with us 


Your safety and well being are of paramount importance to us, and we believe that few could meet our standards in client care, before, during and after the activity
