Licensing

High Points holds a licence from the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority. Companies running outdoor activities for under 18s must hold this licence by law. To be awarded a licence, a company must go through a thorough safety inspection of its procedures on a regular basis. This is carried out in line with best practice within the industry and by qualified and experienced inspectors.

Insurance

High Points carries Product and Product Liability Insurance up to £5 million. We would also advise participants to have their own personal accident insurance cover.

High Points is a member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning.
