If it says ‘Standby list’ or ‘All go’ can I still join the hike or trip?

In Brief: Join the standby list and we’ll get in touch if there’s a place for you.

What’s ‘Standby list’?

‘Standby list’ means that the hike is fully booked, and that there aren’t any places left.

Sign up on the standby list, and we’ll contact you if we get any cancellations.

We quite often get cancellations, and you can let us know the latest you’d like to hear about a vacancy.

What’s ‘All go’?

‘All go’ means that the hike or trip is a confirmed departure, and that we’re not taking further bookings for it.

For the day hikes, we stop taking bookings the evening before. You can still click that button to sign up for the standby list, but we probably won’t be able to help at such short notice.

For the multi-day trips, we stop taking bookings in the week before departure. Sign up for the standby list, and we’ll let you know if there’s still time to get you signed up.

How to sign up for the standby list?

Click the button that says 'Standby list' or 'All go', and fill in the form on the next page.
