We don't think you should not do something because of the potential risk. We believe instead that you should do something because of the potential reward! It is easy to get lost in the quagmire of what ifs and potential negative outcomes of doing something new or something unknown. But in pushing our limits we learn and become better people for it.
So our take is this. There is risk in a lot of what we do, but it is manageable risk. If we acknowledge the risk, understand it, accept it and mitigate all that we can, we can perform within this environment and reap the rewards.
We've been exploring the world and running expeditions to far away places for many many years and we operate adventurous activities in wilderness environments on a daily basis. All our Trip Leaders are Wilderness First Aiders and have extensive experience leading groups in remote parts of the world.
Clark Expeditions has a full Safety Management Plan which outlines our company structure, affiliations, insurance as well as risk assessments and emergency plans for everything we do. Please contact us if you require a copy.
