Should you need cover for trekking whilst in the U.K, our Sports Accident insurance offers 365 day, 24 hour sports protection, for amateurs and semi-professionals (earning less than £5,000 per year from their sport).
Trekking differs from walking in that it’s generally considered more a form of hiking and is therefore more arduous, often comprising of steeper terrain. Many trekkers travel through isolated areas, giving them a different type of experience than walking within organised groups. Trekking can be done anywhere in the world, including popular areas such as the Himalayas in Asia and the Andes in South America.
